Cornish sister ends up in tears on SAS: Who Dares Wins

Cornish sister ends up in tears on SAS: Who Dares Wins

Published by Emma Carton at 9:08am 13th January 2020. (Updated at 9:18am 13th January 2020)

One of the Cornish sisters on SAS Who Dares Wins reveals she has suffered abusive relationships in the past.

27-year-old art teacher Bethany broke down after a tough fighting challenge which aired on Sunday.

Viewers saw her pitted against Jamie, who none of the group know used to be an SAS operator himself.

After being called to check-in with the medical team, she said being treated like that has made her more resilient.

Fans have been quick to praise Bethany on social media, including Jamie himself.

Jamie, who goes by the Twitter handle @jay_morton, posted: "On selection you are graded as a recruit not by your gender...

"Big shout out and love to Beth who caught me with a few corkers".

He later shared a picture of the pair hugging with the caption: "Big love Beth!" 

Ex-SAS Operator Jamie

Sunday night's show saw Bethany and sister Elouise fail the shooting task after opening fire on a Canadian soldier.

They went on to pass the so-called 'sickener', before Bethany was singled out to fight Jamie in a challenge designed to test controlled aggression.

During her post-challenge psych evaulation, Bethany admitted that fighting with a man had been 'a trigger' because of past abusive relationships.

"I'd never really fought back or stuck up for myself and that taught me I could".

She added: "Being treated like that in my previous relationships has made me more resilient and it's made me who I am".
