SAS Australia is revealing more big names for the upcoming season after Craig McLachlan was announced as a star in the popular reality series
SAS Australia will see boxer Anthony Mundine, former Roosters captain Boyd Cordner and Olympian Peter Bol star in the new series, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph.
Craig McLachlan has already been announced as the lead of the series after being found not guilty of sexual misconduct.
Anthony Mundine is one of Australia’s best-known sports stars and one of the country’s most celebrated boxers.
Middle-distance runner Peter Bol, who finished fourth in the 800 meters at the last Olympics, was recently embroiled in a banned substance scandal with Athletics Australia.
He was later acquitted of using any banned substance in his B sample.

It comes after Craig McLachlan was confirmed as one of the hit reality series’ biggest stars for next season, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph.
McLachlan’s girlfriend Vanessa Scammell revealed that he almost didn’t make the military-style show after he had emergency surgery in December.
“Craig’s race against time to gain weight, get stronger and pass his fitness test after emergency surgery at the end of last year was anything but a fait accompli,” she said.
“He was so methodical and careful with his training after surgery. The biggest hurdles for him were meeting the entry requirements.’
Olympian Peter Bol will also star in the series. The 800-meter runner came back positive on his drug test, but was later cleared. Here: Tokyo, 2021

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson is also rumored to have signed up for SAS Australia’s season this year.
Other celebrities associated with the upcoming season include troubled AFL star Ben Cousins and transgender footy great Dani Laidley.
It would have been McLachlan’s first time on stage in five years after he dropped his high-profile defamation lawsuit against ABC, Sydney Morning Herald and Christie Whelan Browne.
Clearly, McLachlan has racked up legal bills in excess of $3 million from the legal battle.

He planned to sue the ABC, the Sydney Morning Herald and Ms Whelan Browne over allegations that he touched, kissed and groped actresses without consent in the production of Rocky Horror, Neighbours, City Homicide and The Doctor Blake Mysteries.
He wrote off Ms. Whelan Browne’s claims and those of Erika Haynatz and Erika Scundi as “completely and wholly false.”
He dropped the first-day defamation suit against 11 women for testimonies.
