SAS Australia star Candice Warner has hinted at who is taking part in the show this year, revealing some will be in over their heads.

In an interview with Nova FM's Fitzy and Wippa, the 36-year-old said some of the contestants probably shouldn't have signed up for the show.

The former Ironwoman said she didn't know everyone who would be appearing on the show, but added, "I think there are gonna be a couple who should never have signed up to it, who will go early."

She then hinted at two contestants, telling the hosts, "I don't know everyone, but from the ones I do know, I think there are two who [are] maybe small in stature, but do very, very well. Because they have big heart and they aren't afraid of big things."

Candice continued, "That is a hint and a clue there," also adding it's "going to be epic".

Matthew 'Ollie' Ollerton, one of the show's directing staff or DS, confessed who he and the other instructors would like to see on the show.

"As soon as they were saying, 'What celebrities do you want?' all the lads, like a symphony, just went, 'Kylie [Minogue]!'" he told Daily Mail.

"I'd find it hard to be nasty to Kylie, I couldn't do that to her. Maybe Dannii [Minogue]? Let's get Dannii on!"

The Minogue sisters are currently both in Australia and they are certainly "small in stature" as Candice mentioned.

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle following her exit from SAS Australia last year, Candice said the support she received while on the show was "overwhelming".

"The fact that this show has changed people’s perception and opinions of myself and my husband and our family has been the cherry on the top," she said.

"I’ve never had this amount of support, it’s been incredibly overwhelming and I didn’t ever expect it [going into the show] to be honest."

The mum of three was a favourite among fans as she showed her grit and determination tackling challenge after challenge on the show, and left them devastated when she was asked to leave in a shocking twist.

"I’ve had so much great feedback from last night, people were truly devastated for me, because they could see how hard I was working and how much it meant to me and everyone was cheering me on," she said.

Before the show aired, Candice had had a rocky experience of public scrutiny between the vicious, and unending, response to her hook up with Sonny Bill Williams in 2007, and her husband, cricketer David Warner’s ball-tampering, and sledging scandal in 2018.

She says now, she’s flooded with messages from people who are inspired by her journey, saying the experience is 'really touching'.
