SAS Australia delivered arguably one of the most spine-tingling scenes during Tuesday’s episode when the celebrities were tasked with revealing their biggest shame.

Tennis legend Mark Philippoussis admitted that not being able to support his family was his greatest regret. While athlete Jessica Peris revealed it was when paramedics took her to hospital in 2019, ultimately saving her life.

The 31-year-old had previously alluded to the fact in an earlier episode, prompting questions from her son.

Now, in a new interview on The Good Chat podcast, Jessica told host, Anita Anabel, that she sat down with 12-year-old Isaac to discuss the events.

What Happened to Jessica Peris in 2019?

“Probably the biggest blessing for me [is] definitely my son,” Jessica admitted.

“You know, there have been so many things that I’ve been through in my life and he’s definitely kept me going through that.”

In 2019, Jessica attempted to take her own life.

“I was pretty disappointed in myself to say the least,” Jess said of her 2019 experience.

The athlete admitted it was a “cry for help” saying that she “needed support and someone to talk to” and said, that the only time she felt everything “stopped” was when she was sleeping.

How Did Jess’ Son Isaac React to The Scene on SAS Australia?

Isaac and Jess watched her admission together, which was heartbreaking for the mother-of-one.

“I sat down next to him and he grabbed my hand and he held me and he said that he loved me and he asked me, ‘Did you do that because of me? Did I make you sad?'”

The SAS recruit told her son that it wasn’t because of him.

“Sometimes when you’re an adult, you go through things in life and you may not see that you have a have a way out,” she said. “But you do because there are so many people around you that love you.

“I said to him, ‘If you ever feel ever feel so sad, you know that mum is always here for you and I just want you to know that I’ll never ever leave you alone in this world’.”

Jessica decided to talk openly with Isaac about her biggest shame that was shown on TV, because she knew that if she didn’t speak to him about it, she thought a kid at school would mention it to him.

“So I think it was important that that came from me.”
