Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins returned for its second episode tonight where the celebrity contestants took part in more challenges which are designed to push them and overcome their deepest trust issues. However, The Only Way is Essex star Pete Wicks was forced to pull out of the Channel 4 competition after sustaining an injury which left him unconscious.

During tonight’s episode, the recruits were challenged to face a series of trust exercises where any hesitation would become costly.

The contestants were forced to jump from a helicopter in pairs, before working together to get to shore.

However, Pete Wicks and partner Ashely Cain faced an even tougher challenge as Pete broke his ribs and knocked himself unconscious in the water.

Talking about his injury and his thoughts on having to withdraw from the series, Pete explained: “I had no worries about that challenge, which is the weirdest thing. My strongest thing is probably swimming.

“I think I was one of the strongest swimmers there and that was a challenge that I thought was well suited to me. I was paired with Ashley, who wasn’t the strongest swimmer, so I just had that in my head, I needed to look after Ashley.

“I didn’t really have any worries about that challenge. I genuinely thought this would be the challenge for me to show what I f***ing got. And I got it wrong, I got it very wrong.

“I think my leg got a little bit caught in the bag and I went straight down onto the bag, knocked myself out and broke my ribs.”

He continued: “I was unconscious in the water so I don’t really remember much, just the rescue swimmers coming to get me and they flicked me over and then said, ‘We need to get you in the boat.’

“I didn’t want to get in the boat because if you start something, you have to finish it, so then I remember trying to swim back.

“The last thing I remember was trying to make sure Ash was all right. We got to shore and then I realised, ‘F**k I’ve actually hurt myself here’.”

Pete added: “I felt dazed and confused. I was struggling to move my upper body. Basically, I think where I’d hit the bag, and I think just the impact of being unconscious and everything else, I was very confused.

“I didn’t really know exactly what was going on and even moving my arms was quite painful, just because of the pressure that was on my ribs and everything, so it just wasn’t nice.

“It was just a strange, strange experience,” the reality TV star went on to admit.

Pete explained that he was “gutted” when he had to be pulled from the competition and admitted to feeling as if he had failed.

“I felt like I’d let a lot of people down, I felt like I’d let myself down, [but] I completely get why they took me out.”

When discussing whether he would want to return to the show in another series, he confirmed: “100 percent.

“Without a shadow of a doubt, I’d do it tomorrow if they gave me another chance at the course.

“I feel like I’ve got unfinished business and I failed as far as I’m concerned. I want to put that right.”

After the team managed to jump from the helicopter and make it back to shore, they then had to take the life of a teammate in their hands as one of them freefalls from a 150ft cliff.

It was the job of their teammate to ensure they didn’t fall and crash to the ground below them.

Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins airs Sunday from 9pm on Channel 4.
