Fans of the show watched in horror last year as Pete’s accident played out on screen.

He was tasked with jumping out of a helicopter into the sea with Ashley Cain.

However the jump went wrong and Pete ended up hitting the water so hard he was knocked out cold.

Speaking about his departure from the show, Pete said: “I was gutted actually.

“Listen, this is a bit of a thing for me, it's like I've always wanted to do this show and the worst thing for me was to be taken out because that's something that I can't control.

"But listen, if I'm completely honest with you, they're a hundred percent right because I wouldn't have been able to carry on with my broken ribs.

"To have been out so early, I was absolutely gutted because it's a fail.

"And unfortunately now for me, I feel like I failed, it's something that will f***ing haunt me because I just don't fail things.

"I don't say I'm going to do something and don’t do it, so I was genuinely so hurt, gutted, disappointed, f***ed off and angry at myself. And I still am, to be honest with, even a year later.

"That was tough for me. I felt like I'd let a lot of people down, I felt like I'd let myself down."

Although the show tests the stars physically, it is also very mentally challenging – and Pete is gutted that he never got the chance to challenge himself in that way.

He continued: "Regardless, my fitness was nowhere near a lot of the other people, but it wasn't about that.

"The whole show is more mental than it is anything else and I wanted to get interrogated and I was just gutted not to even get that far.
