Mon 9 Dec, 7.30pm
As one of the first former UK Special Forces members to talk openly to the media and reveal their identity, Matthew ‘Ollie’ Ollerton has an incredible tale to tell.
The star of TV’s SAS: Who Dares Wins will share stories about hardened criminals, high-speed car chases, counter-terrorism and humanitarian heroics. But it’s not all fearlessness and fame: Ollie has survived a freak childhood attack, run-ins with the law, self-destructive battles with addiction and struggles with anxiety and depression, before his final redemption as an entrepreneur and mental health charity ambassador.
Expect to be shocked, entertained and truly inspired.
