Speaking about her time on SAS: Who Dares Wins, Lauren said: “It was amazing! It was everything I thought it would be and more. I told myself I had to give it everything. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I didn’t want to regret anything so I was all in, fully committed to the experience. The series was so authentic and real – it was definitely an eye-opener to me as a civilian.”
Esther is a 28-year-old Aesthetican and Dancer from Ascot.
Identified as recruit number eight, Esther worked as a tripper to fund a tattoo apprenticeship.
Speaking to Channel 4, Esther said she entered a vicious cycle of drugs and alcohol but turned her life around after surviving a serious car crash in October 2019.

Reanne, recruit number 12 is a personal trainer and coach.
Speaking about why she wanted to take part in SAS, Reanne said: “I noticed I was holding myself back in so many areas of my life and it was stemming from my
mindset and past trauma. I hated the feeling and I wanted an opportunity to prove that I
can control myself under extreme circumstances and endure anything.
“Also that my adversity doesn’t have to define me as a person. If anything, it makes me stronger.”

able to get into SAS, let alone pass the fitness test. I wanted to be the example for all the young Asian Muslim women who may one day want to join the SAS, to say if I can do it so can you!”

This show, I knew would test me like nothing else and I watched all the previous series comparing myself to the other recruits. Having gone through a few years of professional help to deal with childhood trauma, I felt strong enough to apply.
“The show marked a significant moment in my life in that my story needed to be told and my inclusion in the show validated this but it also brought some level of closure to a long and difficult period of my life.”
