Matthew Mitcham to star in new season of SAS Australia
When it comes to sport, nothing quite holds our attention like a gay diver, and Matthew Mitcham from Australia is one of the best gay divers that the world has ever seen.
SAS Australia follows 14 celebrity recruits as they rough it over 10 days in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan. Contestants will face challenges such as handling live grenades and being buried alive.
“They don’t just flog you so hard that you quit – that would be too easy…” explains Mitcham, speaking about the series. “They flog you to the edge of breaking physically, mentally, and emotionally. They know when you’re right at the edge and they hold you there day after day after day. I’ve never been so drained.”
As well as roughing it in the desert, Mitcham has recently made stage acting debut in the UK in a revival of the theatre production of Strangers in Between – written by Tommy Murphy.
