Now the star is said to be delighted with the “perfect signing” as it will give him a chance to open up about his recent battle.

A source told the MailOnline: ‘James has been through so much in his life, but now after months of recovery and working on himself.

“He is ready for a challenge of this magnitude. It’s not just the physical aspect of the show for James, he will be tested mentally.

“SAS producers are always on the lookout for celebrities who have a story to tell and are ready to seize the opportunity – James is the perfect signing.”

Elsewhere, The Sun has detailed how pop singer Siva Kaneswaran and Hollyoaks actress Kirsty-Leigh Porter are lined up for the upcoming series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.

The couple have reportedly been in talks with the producers of the hit Channel 4 show for weeks.

Insiders said The Wanted singer Siva and soap opera star Kirsty, both 33, were surefire signings for the series next year.

A source said: “Siva and Kirsty-Leigh are both surefire signings for the next episode of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

“They have done their fitness evaluations and are on track to sign on the dotted line for the show.

“Matt is a big name for SAS but ultimately they know they can also appeal to younger audiences with Siva and Kirsty-Leigh.

“Gareth Gates is also on the program for the next series, so it’s a real mix of characters.

“Kirsty-Leigh became a first-time mum last year and is really looking to challenge herself away from Hollyoaks. While Siva has been through a lot with the death of teammate Tom Parker.

“He thinks the show will be an amazing experience and is doing so in memory of Tom.”

A spokesperson for Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins said: “In the best traditions of SAS, this assignment is confidential.
