Geldof Forced To Complete Sas Training

TV bosses forced SIR BOB GELDOF to undergo a gruelling Special Air Service (SAS) survival test in preparation for an African documentary.

The ex-BOOMTOWN RATS star and his camera crew were ordered to complete the training before touring the continent for the six-part series, SEASONS OF AFRICA.

He says, "We were put through training for torture, sleep deprivation, being abducted and basic first aid."

But despite the 54-year-old's initial horror at the idea, he came out on top, beating six others who underwent the elite training with him.

Good on him. He is nearly 55, takes little exercise, as far as I know, but must be fit. His determination would have seen him through. I hope there is some film somewhere of this. The air wuld be blue blue, blue!
