Saira Khan has launched legal action against celebrity SAS: who dares to win after life-changing injuries.
The former Loose Woman star suffered physical scars after taking “one of the most difficult election courses yet”.
Saira, 51, was “shocked” when she was seriously injured in an unknown incident, which is being wrapped up by the show’s owners.
Before starting the series tonight, Saira revealed: “Unfortunately I can’t legally go into more detail about it because it’s still going on.
“I was left with scars, bruises all my life. It’s very difficult to deal with.
“I’m a very fit person and going to a show and then experiencing what I did, I was really shocked.
“The show has seemed a bit unfocused in recent episodes, but it’s been a long time coming.
Saira joined the stars, including Carrie Catona, Alrica Johnson and Wes Nelson, who were accompanied by Chief Instructor Ant Middleton.
Leaving behind their enchanting lifestyle, the group headed for the remote island of Rousseau to explore the jungles of Scotland’s inner hybrids.
Saira’s experience not only changed her personality but also Saira’s life.
After returning from base camp, Saira left the loose women five years later.
“I took drastic measures,” she says.
“I left loose women and, interestingly, Andrea McLane left loose women after doing SAS.
“It simply came to our notice then
“When you lose everything as a naked woman, you have to depend on yourself.
“It’s very telling, very strong and most people will never experience it.
“I didn’t want to go back to get the same results, so I changed my life.
“I’m actually very happy about it.”
That’s why Saira doesn’t regret signing up for the intense experience.
“I see this experience as a part of kicking myself,” she admits.
“Thinking about why I had to do it to prove myself because now I have done something for myself for life.
“I wouldn’t have done it at the time because this is the person I am. I needed to prove myself.
“I’ve never felt successful in my life, never. While doing SAS, I knew I was strong but I felt strong. I proved to myself that I needed to prove myself. not required.
“As far as SAS is concerned, I never appreciated what I got.
“Going to this level of extremism really made me realize I had to stop. I don’t have to prove myself, but enjoy what I’ve achieved and what I’ve achieved. Celebrate.
“This show will always be special to me because it was very personal.
“For the first time in my life I think I was really proud of myself. It’s hard for me to say, but I really was.”
