TV presenter Ore Oduba was pulled from the river and "unresponsive" for half a minute in a gruelling river challenge.

The 35-year-old passed out while filming Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.

The former Strictly Come Dancing champion is one of the twelve celebrities taking part in the reality show filmed in the Scottish Hebrides on the remote island of Raasay.

But, the intense training took a terrifying turn as Ore recalled being pulled out of a river and immediately tended to.

He said he could feel himself “falling unconscious” while undertaking a challenge in a river.

He added: “They pulled me out and got me in the Jeep. The guys told me I was unresponsive for about 30 seconds.”

However, Ore isn't the only one struggling from injuries as Kieron Dyer has explained that some scenes had to be cut from the series due to the extreme injuries that the cast sustained.

The 42-year-old former footballer told last month: “They had to cut the pairs out because of the injuries and stuff.”

Similarly, Saira Khan was left with "life-changing" injuries after taking part on the show.

The 51-year-old former Loose Women star told The Sun last month: "I was left with life-long scars, physical ones. That's very hard to cope with.

"I am a very fit individual and to go onto a show and then have experienced what I did, I was in real shock.

"The show was great in supporting, but it's gone beyond that. It's gone onto something a bit bigger than that."

Ore opened up about suffering from PTSD as he struggled to adjust to normal life in the aftermath.

Ahead of the series launch, Ore said: "I was battered. My hands were in bandages, cuts to the face and various things.

"My son was the first person I saw after coming home and when he saw the bandages he asked: 'Are you OK, daddy?'

"I spontaneously broke down in tears. The reality of what I'd been through physically hit when my two-year-old son asked if I was OK.

"You have to suspend a lot of the things you'd feel in normal life to exist in that world.

"It's only when you relax after coming home that it hits you.

"This has gone undiagnosed, but it's a feeling I've never felt before. Having gone through that week, it would be accurate to say I had an element of PTSD following the show.

"This isn't to say it wasn't dealt with during the aftercare and by the psychologists we had. I've dealt with it and moving through it.

Ore says he "felt heavy" after filming finished and fears he'll be "triggered" when the show airs tonight.

"I've never been through an experience like that that's haunted me for days following it," said Ore.

"I remember doing a workout at home and I felt heavy from the experience I'd had. It felt like the first military experience since.

"There was a huge level of appreciation for I don't think enough people appreciate those who do this for a job, every day, for decades of their life and then go back to civilian life and deal with it.

"I had it for a few days and I felt it for a good while afterwards.

"It is going to be very different watching the show back because it will trigger a lot of things we went through, found within ourselves and survived and beat, or were affected by.

Ore says he's relied on support from his co-stars after they made a bond for life filming the show.

"We have a Whatsapp group and it's amazing to have that experience to share with other people," he said.

"No one else knows what we've been through apart from others who have done the series before.

"It's a very special relationship we all have."

  • Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins airs on Channel 4, Sunday at 9pm.
