A new series of Celebrity SAS has landed in Australia, and this year's cohort is already being put through its paces.
Hosted by the grizzled vet Ant Middleton, the show sees a band of famous faces pushed to their limit in a series of challenges.
This year's group include model Nadia Bartel, comedian Pauly Fenech, TV presenter Riana Crehan, actor Sam Frost and Bachelor star Locky Gilbert.
During the first episode of the season, Middleton gives them a taste of what's to come, making the celebs strip off for their first challenge.
And he also takes particular issue with one of the stars.
After explaining the task, Middleton asks Gilbert what he does for a living, to which he replies that he was a reality star.
Mocking him, Middleton then says: "Oh, you’re one of them f*****s, are you?" with Gilbert trying to claw it back by insisting that he's an 'adventure guy'.
During the opening salvo, the head soldier tells the group that they are going to be 'set on fire'.
He then douses them in petrol and and throws a lit match them, warning that they need to put the flames out before it covers their entire body.
The group then runs towards the nearby river to put the fire out, with one of the celebs, Melissa Tkautz, shouting, 'I can’t run very well!'
The celebs are then told that if they want to change into dry clothes, they'll have to strip off on the spot.
While the rest of the gang covered their modesty, Fenech decides to let it all hang out, whipping off his pants and giving Middleton an eyeful.
Middleton, clearly a little impressed, tells Fenech he was a 'clearly confident individual' who 'requires no helmet'.
Middleton travelled to Australia last year after cutting ties with Channel 4 and the British version of the show.
And he hit out at 'hypocritical' SAS: Who Dares Wins UK for using his image in its advertisement.
He posted an angry rant to his Instagram page after seeing a promo pic for the hit series on an on demand service for Channel 7 in Australia, which included a photo of him.
In a post to his channel, Middleton said it was a clear example of double standards, considering the fact that he had been 'sacked' by Channel 4.
He said: "I've just seen an advert of SAS UK on 7+ here in Australia! Funny how the UK cancel culture 'supposedly' sacked me but they're still willing to make money from my profile, my brand, my name, my work and my show!
"And now that I've opened up a market for myself in Australia they are capitalising on my success!
"Laughable, hypocritical and shameful but business is business and that's exactly what it is... just business baby! '#fightcancelculture #allnoise #allBS."
