Former Love Island star Wes Nelson, 23, revealed how he thought he might die while taking part in Channel 4's Celebrity SAS Who Dares Wins.
The reality TV star revealed how he was worried for his life "three or four times" as he not only suffered from "hypothermia every day" but also experienced being "stamped on" by the show's hosts.
Speaking with Will Njobvu and Yewande Biala on the Tea Time Podcast, the Celebrity SAS star said his tooth was knocked out of place during filming, where he had been allegedly beaten and restrained.
He said: "Look at my tooth, it got knocked back. There were restrainers, one of them – not going to name who – smacked my head, smashed my head on the floor."
The celebrity confirmed there were many occasions on the show where he and his cast mates were close to dying.
He said: "There are about three or four chances, like clear cut times on the show where we could have died. Like I could have died. Dead."
Wes was joined by Ulrika Jonsson, Saira Khan, Ore Oduba, Kerry Katona, Vicky Pattison, Jake Quickenden, Alexandra Burke, James Cracknell, Kieron Dyer, Aled Davies and Shanaze Reade for the show which aired in August.
Reflecting on his time, he said: "It was the most messed up show I've ever done in my life. We had hypothermia every day."
Wes Nelson was reduced to tears in the show after repeatedly getting his team in trouble and punished.
Ant Middleton, the show's host, called the star "flash", stating that his Love Island fame had "gone to his head".
After a video call from a home in the same episode, Wes was found sobbing, saying: "Today is the first time I've struggled."
Following Wes' claims of a near-death experience, Channel 4 has ensured viewers of the SAS show that they prioritise each recruit's "health and welfare".
A spokesperson for Channel 4 said: "Contributor care is of paramount importance, and we have strict protocols in place to ensure the health and welfare of each recruit before, during and after filming. We take seriously all injuries and provide full medical support where necessary."
