The group will travel to the remote Isle of Raasay in the Scottish Hebrides for a gruelling series of challenges – but they will have to wait a while longer before discovering what’s in store. 

A show source told The Sun: ‘In the best traditions of the SAS, this mission is confidential. However, full details will be released when the series broadcasts next year.’

The sportsman was born with congenital talipes equinovarus – commonly referred to as club foot – as well as muscular imbalance throughout his body.

But the physical impairment didn’t stop him winning a gold medal at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo and silver at the Rio Paralympics in 2016. 

Maisie Smith is reportedly set to take part after quitting her role as Tiffany Butcher on EastEnders. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Maisie wants to show there’s another side to her beyond the sweet Tiffany she’s been known for playing since she was six.

‘She got a glimpse of life beyond EastEnders in Strictly and enjoyed the freedom.

‘She’d signed up when she told ‘Enders bosses she was leaving, and can’t wait to get stuck in and prove her grit. She’s determined to give a good account of herself but knows it’ll be tough.’

The most recent series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins saw Alexandra Burke, Love Island’s Wes Nelson and Paralympian Aled Davies become the only stars to pass the course out of the 12 who took part.
