SAS: Who Dares Wins recruit Grant was forced to take more than a month out of work after returning from filming as he recovered from injuries.

Grant joined Hilary and Joshua in passing the selection course, after a series of intense tasks under the eyes of Chief Instructor Billy Billingham and his team of Directing Staff, Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox, Rudy Reyes and Chris Oliver.

However, the battles they faced didn’t just end when filming did, as Grant was left recovering when he returned home.

In an exclusive chat with, the 37-year-old said: ‘As a binman, you need your feet, so I was signed off work for four weeks. I had jungle rot so bad.’

He continued: ‘I was called Sick Note, because I took four weeks off work, because my feet were so wrecked.

‘I was on crutches, I couldn’t walk, because my feet swelled that badly coming back on the plane.

‘I had fat legs, fat feet, because they were so swollen, my feet were infected, because of just how bad they were, it was inevitable it was going to happen.

‘After 14 hours of travelling after you’ve passed it, your feet are minging, you’ve done as much admin and care as you can, I couldn’t [work] with the bins.’

But Grant’s troubles didn’t end there.

After returning to work, he discovered he had tendinitis in his wrists.

The Scot told us: ‘I was signed off for another week, I should have been signed off for three weeks but I was like, there’s no way I’m getting the reputation of going on SAS: Who Dares Wins and then getting signed off work because I had what looked like a pedicure.

‘The guys at work are tough guys, so I’m trying to create this tough persona, like yeah I’ve just done SAS: Who Dares Wins but I can’t come to work because I’ve got jungle rot in my feet.’

He continued: ‘And after four weeks I went back, and I was like, guys, I’ve got tendonitis in my wrist, I need a steroid injection in my wrist, I’m going to have to take a week off not because I don’t want to come to work, [but] because I’ve been told because of the steroid injection, I need to allow that to kick in and then I can come back to work.’

A recent episode of the Channel 4 programme showed some of the recruits trench foot ridden feet.

As the recruits were back in the barracks, some took off their shoes, with close up camera angles revealing they were battered and covered in plasters and bandages.

Explaining that looking after feet while in the jungle can be incredibly difficult, Billy told audiences about what they were witnessing.

‘The hardest thing you will have to deal with in the jungle is jungle rot,’ he said.

‘You’ve got to look after all the bits of your body, especially your feet as that’s the only way you are getting around,’ Billy added.

‘If they go down you are f***ed and you are no good to anyone and you will probably die. It’s that simple.’
