Rebel teams up with SAS star for show

 

She hinted at it yesterday and now it's official - comedy actress Rebel Wilson and former commando Ant Middleton are teaming up for a new show.

Middleton, an instructor on hit reality show SAS Australia, is set to join the Pitch Perfect actress on a journey of discovery in Mexico.

Rebel, who recently shed 20kg, teased that the pair had teamed up in an Instagram post yesterday with a photo of herself riding a dune buggy with the caption, "Let's do this @antmiddleton".

Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson: Straight Talking is set to air early next year and will see the pair bond as they travel with only a 4x4 and their backpacks. The duo are currently in Cabo, where Rebel has been uploading holiday snaps.

It will be a chance for fans of Rebel to hear the star talk about her life in the public eye as well as see the two take on buggy racing and deep-sea diving.

Phil Edgar-Jones, director of Sky Arts and Entertainment at Sky in the UK said: "Ant's finely honed skills in interrogation and strategic questioning along with his open and friendly nature will help him get to know the real Rebel Wilson, amidst the incredible backdrop of remote Mexico."

The show follows last year's edition which saw Ant travel to the Namibian desert with One Direction's Liam Payne.

Fans of the former boyband member were left emotional when he revealed he suffered suicidal thoughts as he struggled with fame.

Rebel has recently been rocking a much slimmer look.

In January, she announced this would be her 'year of health' and she stuck to it, overhauling her lifestyle entirely.

She told how her 40th birthday (which was in March), as well as suffering mental health issues over Hollywood's attitude to weight, had encouraged her decision to make healthier choices.

She exclusively told The Sun: "Weirdly this year was always going to be the year of health. I've been naming my years now, and, that's kind of having these resolutions but for the whole year.

"It's not like I want to lose weight and get to a certain number. It's more than that.

"It's about dealing mentally with why I was overeating and I had a job where I was paid a lot of money to be bigger at times, which can kind of mess with your head a bit."

The star - who recently went public with her new millionaire boyfriend Jacob Busch - has been dedicated to her exercise regimen and healthy nutrition as she dropped dress sizes.
