SAS Australia’s James Magnussen shows off his muscular build in tiny Speedos as he hits the beach – after making his debut on the show

He is one of the 17 celebrities completing a series of gruelling challenges on Seven’s SAS Australia.

And on Thursday, James Magnussen, 29, showed off his muscular build in tiny bright Speedos as he enjoyed a day at the beach, just three days after the show’s premiere.

The former Australian swimmer and Olympic medallist flaunted his bulging biceps as he went for a swim at Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

He wore a fitness tracker around his wrist as he jumped into the water and soaked up the sun.

After going for a dip, James showed off his tattoos as he enjoyed a walk along the sand.

Meanwhile, James is one of 17 celebrities completing military-style challenges in a small town in rural NSW called Bobundara on SAS Australia.

The premiere episode saw the celebrity contestants being punished after Firass Dirani disrespected the Special Forces instructors.

Unimpressed with the 37-year-old actor’s attitude, the instructors made all the stars submerge themselves in freezing cold water.

But an emotional Roxy Jacenko refused to get into the water, and instead told the staff that she wanted off the show. 

‘I can’t do it. I actually can’t… My leg’s killing me. I can’t do it,’ the 40-year-old publicist told the instructors as she handed over her armband.

Despite being asked if she was ‘100 per cent sure’, Roxy insisted she couldn’t do it, before breaking down in tears.

She only lasted six hours before deciding to quit because it was ‘too demanding’.
