Why did Katie Price leave Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins?

After only 48 hours of SAS training, Katie Price left the Scottish Island to return home.

Since then, Katie has put her exit down to the fact her body was not ready for the extreme tasks and conditions.

The former glamour model told the Evening Standard that while she felt mentally strong, her body was not ready after having just has breast reduction surgery.

She said: "It was just physically my body wasn’t ready for a lot of the things I was put forward to, because that’s just due to my stupidity of going smaller surgically."

She went on: "But apart from that I am a strong person anyway. When you get an interrogator going at you, even thought you know it is fake, although it is a show, it is not supposed to feel like a show. It feels like reality.”

The star also told the Mirror that she did leave the show with new life goals.

She explained: "I left the old Katie up there and she’s not coming back either!

"You don’t come back from filming a show like this and just wash it off. It stays with you. Life is one big challenge and I want the world to be a better place for everyone."
