Saira Khan has shut down suggestions she is taking legal action against Channel 4 TV show SAS: Who Dares Wins which she is currently starring in. The former Loose Women panellist took to social media last night ahead of the show to speak out following incorrect reports.
“There is no legal action taking place between myself or @minnowfilms who make @SAS_whodareswins,” she wrote on Instagram, in view of her 95,800 followers.
The mum-of-two went on to say that she had enjoyed taking part in the programme, which sees celebrities test their physical and psychological resilience.
“I love every minute of being part of this show,” she added.
“I have been fully supported by all at @channel4 and @minnowfilms. End of! Enjoy the show,” she signed off.
Her comments come after it was reported Saira was taking legal action after suffering “life-changing injuries” while participating.
The show, which this year stars Ulrika Jonsson, Wes Nelson, James Cracknell and Alexandra Burke to name a few, recreates the intensive selection process with ex-special forces soldiers.
In an interview with The Sun, Saira said of an incident in which she was hurt: “Unfortunately legally I can’t go into much detail about it because it’s still ongoing.
“I was left with life-long scars, physical ones. That’s very hard to cope with.”
Last night’s launch episode saw the group head to the remote island of Raasay on the west coast of Scotland in the Inner Hebrides.
Saira watched the programme at a friend’s house in Chamonix, where she is currently holidaying.
She took to the picture-sharing site after it aired to share some behind-the-scenes insight.
The former Apprentice star spoke of a slight misunderstanding regarding one of the tasks.
“When we had to go into that gas chamber, we’d got the masks on, I thought that Billy said, ‘Go in and rescue the ostrich’. Not the hostage.
“I thought the whole cabin was full of ostrich and that I had to go and rescue them.
“And I thought to myself, ‘I didn’t know they sent the SAS in to rescue animals’.
“So I was absolutely petrified that I had to go and rescue an ostrich, not a hostage, which is what he was saying.”
When the line-up was revealed earlier this month, the TV star said it was an opportunity that she couldn’t turn down.
“I could not pass this once in a lifetime opportunity to put to the test what I’m really made of when I’m stripped of everything I have and know.
“I have enormous respect for everyone who turns up for this show and those who put it together,” she wrote online alongside a picture of the 2021 cast.
Fellow participant Ulrika Jonsson described it as “the most profound experience of my life.”
