Before SAS Australia 2021 even aired on September 13, there was already word of a cheating scandal that is set to rock the set.

While we don’t have much intel, SAS DS Ant Middleton has revealed that someone allegedly cheats during the course and it “doesn’t go unnoticed”.

In an interview with, Ant revealed that because he watches them like “a hawk”, someone gets caught red-handed.

“We asked them to do a certain activity and there is some cheating and it definitely doesn’t go unnoticed,” he told the outlet. “We won’t make you suffer (if we catch you cheating) – we’ll make the others suffer and hopefully they’ll be the one that will slowly get a grip of you and tell you to buck up or quit the course.”

When asked if the cheater cheater pumpkin eater refused to admit they’d done dirty, he replied: “You’ve got a pretty good source.” Eeep!

Ant, who is no stranger to giving people a dressing down, also admits to spraying one of the new recruits with some serious venom in the first episode of the show.

“I give everyone a dressing down, whether it’s a female recruit or Sam Burgess or Heath Shaw. If they’ve messed up, they’re going to get a dressing down. This isn’t a game, it’s not a joke. It’s serious for us,” he said.

The former SAS soldier also admitted that someone leaves the course early on in the process due to injury (“which is the nature of the course”) and that they’ve definitely “upped the ante” this year when it comes to what the celebs will go through.

We’re also expecting former NRL player, Sam Burgess, to spill the tea on his “alleged” affair while married to ex-wife Phoebe Burgess.

In episode 101 of So Dramatic! With Megan Pustetto a source revealed new information about the affair that caused the couple’s relationship to crumble while Phoebe was pregnant with the couple’s first child, Poppy!

“Sam cheated on Phoebe during a boys’ trip in Melbourne for his younger brother George‘s buck’s party,” the source said of the event which allegedly took place over the last weekend of November 2016. “I was attending the hen’s party for Jessie Murphy, the wife of Carlton AFL player Marc Murphy.

“Sam and his brother just so happened to be at the same pub for George’s buck’s party,” the source dished. “The group of guys started talking to the group of girls and then we all started drinking together. After the pub, we all went to a strip club and then it ended back at a hotel room with everyone.”
