    1. I agree, the adverts show enough and in the age of an awareness about workplace bullying the ‘training’ for SAS whether for celebrities or contestants seems abusive.
      I realise I have no awareness of the actual training and realise they would need to deal with confronting scenarios, but it doesn’t show case ‘respectful entertainment’ that I would enjoy.

    2. Yes, I agree. I watched just a few minutes of this show and found the bullying and shouting just too much to handle. I had to switch it off. I consider this a nasty show that is neither entertaining nor informative.
