SAS: Who Dares Wins star Ant Middleton has made an appearance on A-lister Rebel Wilson’s Instagram.

The photo was posted on Tuesday, ahead of an announcement from Sky the following day that the pair are teaming up for Middleton's Straight Talking show.

Its debut series last year saw Middleton joined by One Direction's Liam Payne for the interview special as they travelled through Namibia but this time he's heading to Mexico with Wilson.

The unlikely duo were pictured in the country in Wilson's social media snap as Middleton sat in a car seemingly rigged up with filming equipment while she posed from outside the vehicle in a matching pink top and bandana.

"Well I survived Day 1 with @antmiddleton," the 40-year-old wrote alongside an emoji of the Mexican flag.

The duo will complete a number of high-thrill adventures including deep-sea diving and buggy racing.

Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment at Sky, 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.”

It may no come as no surprise that the Pitch Perfect star has challenged herself by teaming up with the ultra-disciplined Middleton considering that the actor has thrown herself into activity and exercise after declaring 2020 would be her 'year of health'.
