BRUTAL reality show SAS: Who Dares Wins is back for another outing and this time the contestants are being put through their paces deep in the Vietnamese jungle.
Kicking off the eighth series in new territory, 20 civilians will face their toughest challenge yet as they endure the gruelling jungle phase of SAS selection.
The ex-Special Forces team will closely replicate the exact processes undertaken by those in training.
Billy Billingham is stepping up to the mark and leading the recruits for the first time ever after calling the jungle 'his baby'.
The star said: “Finally back in the jungle, this is my baby. I have a lot of experience in this. I’ll take the lead…the jungle phase of selection was the hardest part of my military career. I’ve never felt so relieved for something to be over…”
He will be accompanied by Rudy Reyes, who led the last celeb mission, Foxy and a brand new DS, Chris Oliver.

Rudy compared the jungle phase to the 'baptism of fire', saying: “The Vietnamese jungle isn’t some gap year holiday destination. It will kill you if you underestimate it. These recruits are in for a baptism of fire!”
In the first-look, the contestants are left vomiting and brawling with each other as they undergo the biggest test of their lives.
The participants can be seen whizzing down zip lines against waterfalls as well as taking on dizzying heights.
Those chosen to be put through the condensed SAS course are likely to be changed for life when they come out of the process thanks to the excruciating circumstances they will find themselves in.

Foxy compared this series to having the 'soul' sucked 'out of you', revealing: “It's more intense and it's more claustrophobic. You've got the jungle around you with all the plants, all the animals, all the insects that try to get you.
"And then to top it all off, the humidity feels like another creature. An alien one that's just trying to suck the soul out of you.
"It’s a horrible place."
SAS: Who Dares Wins begins tonight at 9pm on Channel 4.
