No word on an air date yet for SAS Australia season two. The first season of the reality show was a runaway hit for Seven - but a bumpier ride for the celebs who took part, who were met with frequent social media controversies about their behaviour on the show.

Industry site TV Blackbox went as far as to say that actor Firass Dirani's behaviour as a contestant had "killed his TV career".

Despite all that, a Seven spokesperson last November insisted they had been inundated with celebrities "begging" to take part in the show.

"We have been inundated with Aussie celebs wanting to take part and there are some good surprises on the shortlist," they said.

 

SAS Australia’s Ollie Ollerton, Ant Middleton, Jason 'Foxy' Fox, Mark 'Billy' Billingham.

And you can expect today's announced celebs are already deep into training for the show, which will see them attempt to complete gruelling SAS-style physical challenges under the gruff tutelage of Ant Middleton and his team.

"Once cast they are given a training program. Ideally they need at least three months to get SAS 'fit' in a physical sense, but getting into the right mindset is up to the individual."

And while season two hasn't even aired yet, applications are now open for the third season of SAS Australia - and this time, they're seeking everyday (non-famous) Aussies to apply.
