CELEBRITY SAS fans reckon that Ant Middleton has dropped a huge clue about who wins the show.
Former solider Ant, 40 said that he was "inspired" by X Factor star Jake Quickenden's mental resilience.
Jake recently broke down in tears as he opened up about the tragic deaths of his brother and father on Celebrity: SAS Who Dares Wins.
The 32-year-old star took to social media to pay a special tribute to his brother Oliver who died of bone cancer nine years ago.
Jake shared a series of touching photos of his late brother along with a heartwarming message.
He penned: "9 years ago today you was taken from us all!! I wish you was here to meet Leo, he would have loved you so much!!
"The strength you showed, the fight is you was something I will always admire, you are the reason I wanna fight and do well for Leo.
"You showed me anything is possible and I wish I could see you again, talk shit, play some FIFA and just laugh life we used to!! Love you always little bro ❤️❤️!!."
Jake was flooded with warm messages praising the brave star for openly sharing his experience with loss.
SAS star Ant penned a heartfelt comment acknowledging Jake's strength and positivity.
He shared: "From what I seen of you and know of you! Your brother would be so proud of you!
"An outstanding example of a big brother!
"There’s two people of late that inspire me (and that’s rare) by their mental resilience and with their connected and grounded personas, yourself Jake and @mrashleycain 👊🏼.
"A show of strength and positivity that puts your generation firmly on the map 🙏🏼💙 #neveroutofthefight."
Fans of the show were quick to spot the comment, with one writing: "@antmiddleton wow that’s big ❤️❤️."
Another posted: "@antmiddleton what an incredible message for @jakequickenden14 couldn’t agree more."
Jake was rocked by the loss of his dad Paul in 2008 from a form of bone cancer and his brother Oliver four years later.
The former X Factor star tackled his emotional turmoil in a man-to-man chat with Chief Instructors Ant Middleton and Jason Fox last week.
Ant asked: "A serious question – take me back to what you've been through in life, to have that determination because you seem like a very strong young man with something to prove."
Hearing the compliment, Jake wiped away tears and replied: "Probably about three or four years ago I wasn’t the man I was now. I’ve tried to grow up a lot.
"I lost my dad and brother. I lost my dad when I was 20 and my little brother when I was 24. To cancer."
Oliver was diagnosed with osteosarcoma – the most common form of bone cancer – when he was only 16 and he passed away in 2012 aged 19.
Jake said talking about the double blow of losing his father and brother on the gruelling Channel 4 show helped him process his grief.
He recently revealed: "This show was a form of counselling. The way Ant and Foxy dealt with me was great.
"They were amazing in how they made me look at things. Being stripped back and realising we all go through loss, it really helped me.
"I left them looking at life in a different way. I'm a very emotional person and I don't think that's a bad thing."
