Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins spoilers follow.
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins has crowned its winner for the fifth series, with Gareth Gates coming out on top.
The finale saw Gates, Matt Hancock and Danielle Lloyd battle it out in the final course, with the crew – Mark 'Billy' Billingham, Jason 'Foxy' Fox, Rudy Reyes and Chris Oliver – all putting the celebrities through their paces.
"Selection is the hardest thing these celebrities could choose to do in their lives. It's all about trust," said Foxy ahead of the trial. "I look at the people that are stood in front of us, and I ask myself, in the darkest of dark places, would I have that person stood next to me?"
After a brutal trial, in which Billingham said they all gave a "good effort", Gates was eventually told that he had passed the course, with the star remarking: "Thank you, staff. Wow. Thank you."
"It was a really crazy experience," said the pop star of his win. "To hear the DS at the end, when Billy said, 'There's only one person we'd actually stand shoulder to shoulder with. And that's you, number seven.' That was a really amazing feeling."
"I think winning, or, passing was amazing but being the only one really meant a lot to me. Realising that this is real for these DS, was really eye-opening. We're just here creating a TV show but this is what they've had to do for real," he added.
"There's a real difference between being gym fit and being battle fit. In the end, I think I was just mentally strong as well. You can train as hard as you can for the physical element of it. But I think it's the mental resilience really gets people through to the end."
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins airs on Channel 4.
