Katie Price quit Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins on the very first night – storming off after failing orders to lift a sandbag above her head.

The 41-year-old mother-of-five left the Channel 4 reality show just minutes into the second episode, when the recruits were woken up after just one hour of sleep and told to stand holding a heavy sandbag over their head.

Price, who had already been labelled by ex-forces instructors as "the weakest link", struggled to lift the bag and after resting it on her head, gave up and threw her number onto the ground in front of officers as she stormed off camera.

She admitted afterwards: “I’m so p**sed off. I didn’t have the strength. I will always f**king beat myself up. So p**sed off with myself.”

It had previously been reported that Price – who was declared bankrupt last year had quit the reality show after two days of filming.

In an interview filmed before her departure she said: “It doesn’t matter what anyone says to me I can cope with it. I’ve proved it but I won’t be the fittest and I will struggle.

“It’s important for me to stay strong. I feel I’ll come out a new person if I push myself. It’s a tough thing to do this course, it’s tough.”

She has since claimed she left the show on medical grounds, saying: “I pulled something in training. My breast reduction became inflamed. It was out of my control. I was gutted. I had to leave because of the pain I was in.

"I’ll never take my creature comforts for grant­ed again. I left with new life goals. I left the old Katie up there. She’s not coming back.”
