Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn cries as she QUITS Special Forces: World’s Toughest Tests on Fox

Jamie Lynn Spears bawled as she quit after only two days into special forces training on Wednesday’s episode of Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test on Fox.

The 31-year-old actress after confessing to instructors during the season premiere that she struggles with self-esteem issues as the younger sister of pop star Britney Spears, 41, cited her daughters as her reason for leaving.

‘Like, I just can’t do it one more night. I can’t do it,’ Jamie Lynn said while confiding in Spice Girl Mel B, 47, at the start of the episode that she was struggling. Mel B signaled one of the instructors.

‘You sure?’ Mel B said, to which Jamie Lynn replied: ‘Yes.’

‘I miss my children when I’m away from them for a couple of hours,’ Jamie Lynn said in a confessional. ‘So this is a very big leap for me.’

Jamie who has daughters Maddie, 14, and four-year-old Ivey cried in a confessional.

‘Not only do I love them and want to be with them, but being away from them like this, even if it’s something for myself, makes me feel like a cr*p mom,’ Jamie Lynn said. ‘They didn’t ask for their mom to be gone.’

Jamie Lynn then cried to one of the trainers Remi Adeleke, a former Navy SEAL.

‘My babies,’ she said.

‘Thank you so much,’ Jamie Lynn said.

Jamie Lynn became the fifth recruit to leave the course and after her departure only 11 recruits remained.

Mel B said in a confessional that it was tough watching Jamie Lynn leave.

‘Being part of the Spice Girls, I’d like to think I’m very much part of a group, where you can be relied on, and you can rely on other people,’ Mel B said. ‘But when somebody you absolutely love leaves, that’s a really tough thing.’

At the start of day three of the challenge, Mel B was still upset. The trainers brought Mel to meet with them in an interrogation room and asked her how she thought she was doing.

‘I don’t know,’ Mel B said. ‘I’m doing okay.’

They told her she was doing good but they worried that she was being consumed with self doubt. They asked her to tell them why she was there.

‘This for me is about taking back my own power, my own control, that’s why I’m not going to beat myself up if I don’t stay any longer than this,’ Mel B said crying. ‘Since I came out of a really abusive relationship, 10 years I was in that, and I’ve been out of it for seven years, and I dealt with it in bits and pieces. But then the reminder of the self worthiness and being called so many names, day after day for 10 years, comes back. And it always comes back when I get told, for example, that you’ve done really well because when that happens then I would always go home to something that was just devastatingly bad.’

The trainers said the course could be an opportunity for her to put the past behind her. Remi told her it was clear to them that she had the fortitude.

‘You just have to believe it for yourself,’ Remi said

A guard took her back to the camp.

‘If you would have said to me ”Oh, you are going to be in that kind of relationship,’ I’d go ”God, no way I’m Scary Spice. I’m a Spice Girl”,’ Mel B said in a confessional. ‘No one’s ever going to do that to me. You know, and I still have to remind myself that that’s then and this is now.’

The recruits were then rounded up for their next challenge to sit calmly underwater in a truck for 20 seconds that was hoisted and then dropped into the ocean.

Bad relationship: 'If you would have said to me ''Oh, you are going to be in that kind of relationship,' I'd go ''God, no way I'm Scary Spice. I'm a Spice Girl'',' Mel B said in a confessional.

In order to pass the test, each of the recruits had to remain underwater, holding the steering wheel for 20 seconds. Instructor Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox swam outside the car in scuba gear and would squeeze them twice on the shoulder signaling when to unbuckle their seat belt and exit the car through the back window.

‘If they don’t react properly they could die,’ said Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham, a former elite British Special Air Service member and one of the head instructors.

Carli Lloyd, 39, a former professional soccer player, went first. She almost immediately started panicking and took her hands off the wheel.

Mel B went next, completing it successfully.

‘Not too shabby,’ said Rudy Reyes, a former US Marine and one of the instructors.

Kenya Moore, 51, said in a confessional that she was doing the challenge because she wanted her child to see her as a ‘rock star.’

‘That I can do whatever I set out to do and so can she,’ Kenya said.

Hannah Brown, 27, said she was part of the challenge because she wanted to push herself.

Both Kenya and Hannah passed the test.

‘Big fat fail,’ Rudy said.

‘It’s been exactly 10 years since my career ended,’ Nastia said in a confessional. ‘I was reigning Olympic all-around champion and on my very best event, the uneven bars, I fell flat on my face. I got back up knowing that my career was over.’

Nastia tried to get out of it but then Remi got in the car with her for the exercise and she was able to stay underwater for 20 seconds.

‘Good job,’ Kenya said. ‘Way to face your fears.’

Billy talked with them all later and told them overall he was impressed. He then threw everyone’s rucksack into the water to see if they had packed everything correctly to stay waterproof. He told them to also jump in after them and swim to the exit.

‘I know I say I can handle someone yelling at me because I am used to it but being put in these situations and being told what to do by a man is still a trigger,’ Mel B said in a confessional.

When they got back to camp, Nastia told Mel B she decided to leave because she got special treatment.

‘Why are you quitting?, skier Gus Kenworthy, 30, asked. ‘You can do this. Just stay here. Don’t say you are going to quit. Don’t quit on yourself.’

Gus said after she left that Nastia getting extra help completing the water assignment shouldn’t have counted asa pass and Kenya agreed.

‘She panicked for 20 f***ing minutes,’ Kenya said.

Nastia told Remi she was turning in her wristband because people were uncomfortable with her receiving special treatment. She left crying and was the sixth recruit to leave.

Remi brought Gus in to talk to the instructors. Gus returned and told the others how he got yelled at.

‘It’s not a nice feeling,’ he said.

‘Yeah,’ Mel said.

At night, Mel sat outside smoking cigarettes. Kenya told her to not smoke near them.

‘Don’t worry, I’m gone anyway,’ Mel said storming off.

Mel then told Foxy her decision. .

‘I think I’ve done what I set out to do,’ Mel said. ‘I’ve taken orders. I’ve done it. I didn’t expect to last, like a day. I’ve done it now, I think that’s really good.’

Mel then turned in her armband and left.

‘Three days in and half of us are gone,’ Kenya said.

Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test will return next Wednesday on Fox.

Done it: 'I think I've done what I set out to do,' Mel said. 'I've taken orders. I've done it. I didn't expect to last, like a day. I've done it now, I think that's really good.'
