OLLIE OLLERTON CO-HOSTS SAS: WHO DARES WINS ALONGSIDE ANT MIDDLETON, JASON FOX and MARK BILLINGHAM. THIS IS HIS INCREDIBLE TRUE STORY
Where is your break point?
Is it here? Facing the gruelling SAS selection process on one leg, with a busted ankle and the finish line nowhere in sight?
Or here? Under heavy fire from armed kidnappers even as protecting journalists en route to Baghdad.
Or is it here? On the bottom of a bottle, with a circle of relatives in pieces, unable to adapt to a civilian way of life, yearning for a warzone?
Ex-Special Forces soldier and star of TV’s SAS: Who Dares Wins, Ollie Ollerton has faced many break points in his life and now he tells us the vital lessons he has learnt. His unbelievable story features hardened criminals, high-speed car chases, counter-terrorism and humanitarian heroics – freeing children from a trafficking ring in Thailand.
Ollie has faced break points in his personal life too, surviving a freak childhood attack, run-ins with the law as a youngster rebelling against a broken home, his self-destructive battles with alcohol and drug addiction, and his struggles with anxiety and depression. His final redemption as an entrepreneur and mental health charity ambassador has seen him overcome adversity to build a new and better life.
‘Everyone has the capacity for unbelievable achievement, because it is just when it is crunch time, when you are down to your last bullet – when you are at break point – that you find out who you truly are.’
