LOOSE Women's Saira Khan said Celebrity SAS left her with "life-long physical scars" and has launched legal action against the show.
The former panellist, 51, says it's "very hard to cope with" the "physical" scars from the undisclosed incident.
Saira said ahead of the show's premiere yesterday: "Unfortunately legally I can't go into much detail about it because it's still ongoing.
"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."
Saira joined stars including Kerry Katona, Ulrika Johnson and Wes Nelson being put through their paces by chief instructor Ant Middleton.
The group left behind their glamorous lifestyles to head into the wilds of the Inner Hebrides in Scotland to the remote island of Raasay.
After returning from base camp, Saira quit Loose Women after five years on the show.
However, Saira doesn't regret signing up for the show despite her life-long injuries.
She continued: "I kind of look back on that experience partly kicking myself", she admits.
"Thinking why did I have to do to prove myself because I've now caused myself something for life.
"At the same time I wouldn't have not done it because it's the person I am. I needed to go and prove something to myself.
"I've never felt successful in my life, ever. Doing SAS, I knew I was strong but I felt strong. I proved to myself that I don't need to prove myself.
"Up until the point of doing SAS I had never appreciated what I'd got.
"Going to that level of extremity really made me realise I've got to stop. I don't need to keep proving myself, but just enjoy what I've got and celebrate what I've achieved.
"For me this show will always be really special because it was deeply personal.
"I think for the first time ever in my life I was really proud of myself. That's quite a hard thing to say for me, but I really was."
- Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins airs on Channel 4, Sunday at 9pm.
