SAS Who Dares Wins aims to create another spin-off show in an unlikely country

There seems to be something of a transatlantic cultural exchange going on with the Channel 4 show SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Last year it was revealed that American actor and former US Marine Rudy Reyes would take over as host of the UK version after Ant Middleton went under a cloud.

In return, we’re now developing a spin-off of the series for the States that celebrates the capabilities of British Special Forces.

And the creators of the military training show really dug deep to come up with the title that will be. . . SAS: Who dares wins in America.

A TV insider said: “The show was a huge hit this side of the Atlantic and even spawned a celebrity spin-off that’s just as popular as the civilian version.

“Australia and Sweden already have their versions, so taking it to another country is nothing new.

“Obviously, however, it may raise an eyebrow in the states where their elite military men and women are trained by the Marines.

“But there’s an odd taste for all things British in the US that the creators hope to build on.”

The UK version of SAS: Who Dares Wins has become a staple of Channel 4 programming since it launched seven years ago.

The celebrity spin-off followed shortly thereafter in 2019.

The trainers, military men Jason Fox and Ant, became household names due to their popularity, although Ant split from the show last year after allegations of inappropriate behavior.

This year the British competition is led by Rudy.

He was born at an air force base in Missouri and his father was also a Marine – so he’s as American as apple pie.

In return, I’d like to see a terribly English Captain Mainwaring-esque character fronting the US version.

View from the bridge

The BRIDGERTON cast seem to be watching us, watching them, in this sneak peek into the upcoming second season of the historical drama.

The shot features the entire Toff family, including lead character Anthony Bridgerton on the far right, played by Jonathan Bailey, in Netflix’s follow-up season, which begins March 25.

Although her character plays a lesser role this time, the picture also features Phoebe Dyvenor, second left, as Daphne Bridgerton.

But unlike the rest of the Regency clan, her attention seems to be elsewhere.

She’s probably looking for Rege-Jean Page to play her love interest, the Duke of Hastings.

Good luck with that, Phoebe. He’s not in the sequel.

Jack is having loads of fun

JACK Whitehall proudly poses with footballers Mason Mount and Declan Rice during their golf challenge for Comic Relief.

Last week I announced the comedian would support the March 18 fundraiser by playing mini-golf with two English stars. Now here’s proof it wasn’t just a weird dream I had!

Chelsea midfielder Mason and West Ham favorite Declan joined Jack, also sporting red noses.

The Arsenal fan said: “I’m a huge fan of Declan and Mason even though they don’t play for my team but I can only hope they put all their ball skills on the pitch so I can get the win.”

I have a feeling they want to win while he only plays for laughs.

Baby Dom, by the way

LOVE Island couple Jessica Shears and Dom Lever are expecting their second child.

The couple fell in love on the ITV2 dating show in 2017, married in 2018 and welcomed their son a year later.

Yesterday, Dom confirmed the news on Instagram, saying, “Our family is growing.”

Speaking on The Matt Morgan Podcast, singer-songwriter Noel said: “Someone asked me to narrate a documentary about a band recently.

“I do a lot of different things and I can feel the director just saying, ‘That was a friggin’ shitty idea, whose idea was that?’

“Anyway they came back and the apology was brilliant. The excuse was, ‘We’re not going to have a narrator now’.”

Noel gave Matt three guesses as to who the band was, but denied it was The Who, The Smiths or Pink Floyd.

Imagine if it were actually Oasis.

Plea for Oz soap reruns

YOU have to admire the tenacity of Neighbors fans after it was revealed the Australian favorite was axed.

They are lobbying other networks to keep the spirit of the Channel 5 show alive by airing every episode of the soap from the start.

They also presumably hope the early episodes will remind TV executives how good it used to be.

UKTV’s Drama Channel has already been bombarded with tweets promoting the #save Neighborhoods campaign.

One viewer wrote, “I wonder if @dramachannel would just consider buying Neighbors with the rights to show classic episodes?” Another added, “It would be very good to see reruns from start to finish. “

The broadcaster responded with a glimmer of hope: “We try to add new content to the schedule whenever possible.”

However, don’t expect to see Bouncer and Mrs Mangel back on our screens just yet.

Inexplicable expletive

VIEWERS of Saturday Night Takeaway left confused after host Ant McPartlin apologized for broadcasting a “rude word”.

Co-host Declan Donnelly went as far as saying, “We’re live tonight.”

But after much chatting on social media about the mystery, no one could recall any swear words.

The city maniacs are back

THERE’S good news and bad news if you’re a fan of the banking and bonking drama industry like me.

The BBC2 show is coming back for a second series, although we won’t be able to see it until it airs in the US.

Although the drama, about a group of young traders making their way in the banking world, is set in London, Americans get to see it first as the show is produced by HBO and bought by the BBC.

It’s still airing in the US, so it won’t hit our screens until the fall.

That should give Robert (Harry Lawtey) and Yasmin (Marisa Abela) enough time to clean the mirror in the Pierpoint Bank toilets.
