Was there a battle of the sexes on SAS: Who Dares Wins? A Cornish midwife who reached the final stage has spilled all!

Louise Gabbitas from Gwithian was one of the first female recruits on the TV show.

EVERYONE was put through the same gruelling military course.

The 29-year-old told Pirate FM's Neil and Lucy at Breakfast there was no time for man versus woman!

This is Louise Gabbitas - the Cornish midwife who made it to the final stage of SAS: Who Dares Wins

"It was the living together, the eating together. People asked questions like 'do you think the banter changed because women were present?'

"Or 'do you think men were a bit more cautious, did they want to protect you?' I can honestly say you just didn't have time for that".

Especially not, Louise added, when the instructors came bursting through the door at night ordering everyone into the drill area.

"There was no dignity in that - you just got changed in five minutes.

"We had like a buddy-buddy system so I was next to a man on one side and next to a woman on the other and I was dressing them as quickly as they were dressing me. It was all kind of like we have to get out there together".

If you missed Pirate FM's interview with Louise, you can listen back to Neil and Lucy at Breakfast here.

But perhaps the best thing we witnessed when Louise was here, was what happened when she hoisted Neil over her shoulders!
