James Cracknell and Jake Quickened are being lined up to star on SAS: Who Dares Wins according to sources.
And apparently it is the fact that the lads have good stamina that has bosses of the Channel 4 show ready to offer them spaces on the gruelling army challenge series.
Former X Factor singer Jake, 32, has already proved he is happy to live in the wild having starred on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2014.
While Olympic icon James, 48, has impressive endurance skills thanks to his career as a double gold winning medalist as a rower.
While the athlete was already put through his paces in the wilderness as a star on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls.
The celebrity version of SAS: Who Dares Wins is expected to return to screens next year – with Jake and James seen as top contestants.
A source told The Sun: “James and Jake are super-fit and should do well given their past pursuits in challenging TV shows.
“Bosses are keen to have people who won’t collapse at the first hurdle.”
The 2019 series of the show saw stars including Katie Price, Joey Essex and John Fashanu compete for the crown.
Tensions rose with John clashing with fellow contestant Locksmith of Rudimental fame, while Katie Price quit the show after just two days.
Jack Maynard, Anthea Turner, Joey and John all also withdrew from the contest – which was eventually ‘won’ by Locksmith and Lauren Steadman.
The show is fronted by former British soldier Any Middleton and sees stars put through their paces in two week military training course.
Challenges are akin to torture – with contestants kept awake for hours on end and facing interrogations in extreme role play scenarios.
