SAS Australia: Manu Feildel QUITS in the most dramatic exit to date

SAS Australia’s most dramatic exit to date: Manu Feildel QUITS before a challenge even starts saying he ‘has a f**king good life and doesn’t need to prove anything to himself’ – before crying to his wife moments later


Manu Feildel became the third recruit to voluntarily quit SAS Australia on Wednesday night’s episode.

The celebrity chef, 47, dramatically handed in his number to chief instructor Ant Middleton while surrounded by his fellow recruits – before a challenge had even started.

‘I came on this course to prove something to myself, and I just realised I don’t need to prove anything,’ Manu boldly said to the camera shortly after his exit.

‘I’ve got a f**king good life. I’ve got a f**king good life, and I want it back,’ he added.

Ant had been explaining the challenge to recruits moments before Manu made his decision to bolt.

It involved the celebrities being seated in a vehicle which was then plunged into water – with the recruits being forced to hold their breath until they were given instructions to swim away.

Decision: 'I came on this course to prove something to myself, and I just realised I don't need to prove anything,' Manu announced to the camera shortly after leaving

‘If you f**k this up, we will be dragging your carcasses out of the water and f**king pumping the water out of your lungs,’ Ant warned.

‘Once you get into that vehicle and the directing staff (DS) puts that seatbelt on you, that whole process will not stop. If you panic, you’re going to stay under there a lot longer.’

The warning saw Manu immediately stand up without hesitation, holding his number to Ant who stared back at him in disbelief.

‘You haven’t even tried it number six, have you? Can you hold your breath?’ he asked.

Heartache: Moments later, Manu was seen in a private room on a video call with his wife Clarissa Weerasena and their daughter Charlee, where he broke down in tears as he announced he was coming home

But having clearly made up his mind, Manu simply responded: ‘I’m giving you my number, staff.’

Moments later, Manu was seen in a private room on a video call with his wife Clarissa Weerasena and their daughter Charlee, where he broke down in tears as he announced he was coming home.

‘Listen, I’m done. I don’t need to be here anymore,’ he said. ‘I want to come home. I miss you more than this.’

When his wife asked how he was feeling, he simply responded: ‘I am fabulous.’
