It may seem like the unlikeliest of friendships, but Katie Price has revealed she struck up a close bond with fellow Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins contender Anthea Turner.
The show sees 12 celebrities stepping out of their comfort zones and embarking on a host of gruelling tests of stamina and endurance amidst Scotland’s rugged West Coast – normally used as part of the selection process for SAS hopefuls.
And while the experience is likely to have proven incredibly tough for the celebs, two of them look as though they may have made a lasting impression on each other.
When asked if she had bonded with anyone during the show, Price responded: “Anthea Turner. She was amazing.
“I admire her control, her ability to let go and be ok with showing her feelings – mainly fear and panic – on this show. She isn’t a stuck-up prude, she is a life survivor and lovely lady.”
It would appear the feeling is mutual, as when asked the same question, Turner responded: “I’ve got to be honest, my revelation from this whole experience was meeting Katie Price and realising how gorgeous she is outside of the other character she has.
“There’s these two sides of Katie and meeting the real Katie Price was just lovely.”
Price and Turner will be joined on the show by The Only Way Is Essex star Joey Essex; TV presenter Helen Skelton; ballroom dancer, Brendan Cole; former footballer, John Fashanu; Hollyoaks actress, Nikki Sanderson; Youtuber, Jack Maynard; Paralympic Athlete, Lauren Steadman; Rudimental DJ, Locksmith; Radio 1Xtra DJ, Yasmin Evans and former boxing champion, Tony Bellew.
Putting them through their paces will be Chief Instructor, Ant Middleton and his team of Directing Staff, Foxy, Billy, Ollie and newest member Jay.
The celebrity edition of the show first aired last year, and included celebrities Victoria Pendleton and Jeff Brazier. The series was won by former Chelsea and England defender Wayne Bridge.
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins will air on Mondays at 9pm on Channel 4 starting today (20 April).
