Saira Khan reveals the real reason she quit Loose Women after vowing to 'cut out the s***' in her life
SAIRA Khan says she was inspired to quit Loose Women after being on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The 51-year-old returned from the gruelling selection course wanting to "cut out the s***" in her life.
It catapulted a huge change, not only in Saira's personal life, but her work life too.
After five years on the ITV daytime show's panel, Saira returned back from base camp and handed in her notice.
She has since slammed her "toxic" TV job and revealed she’s "absolutely not’"friends with co-stars who she "tolerated".
"I did take big drastic steps, she says, ahead of tonight's series launch.
"I left Loose Women and, interestingly, Andrea McLean left Loose Women after doing SAS.
"It changes your life. You realise you've got to cut through the s**t and start living.
"When you're stripped of everything as a naked woman all you have to depend upon is yourself.
"That's very telling, very strong and most people will never experience that.
"I didn't want to go back to the same s**t, getting the same results, so I changed my life.
"I'm actually very happy about it."
Sadly, Saria is now locked in a legal battle with Celebrity SAS bosses after suffering life-changing injuries.
She told how she bears physical scars after taking on "one of the toughest selection courses yet".
Saira, 51, fell into "shock" when she was badly hurt by the undisclosed incident, which has been kept under wraps by show bosses.
She added: "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.
