Who’s up for yet another SAS-style battle with Jason Fox? Celebrities are frequently pampered, but SAS: Who Dares Wins star Jason is pushing two of them as far as they can go out of their comfort zones. Jason spends an adventurous weekend in Wales with Rob Delaney and, later, Maya Jama, in his new Channel 4 program Foxy’s Fearless 48 Hours With… to put them through some rigorous preparation before throwing them into the final test. “We are capable of incredible things when we come back to nature, challenge limits, and face our fundamental fears,” Foxy adds.
He takes what the media refer to as a “pampered” celebrity out into the wilds for 48 hours, exposes them to some terrible, terror-inducing activities, and speaks with them about their life in between. This has a passing resemblance to Bear Grylls’ program, in which he takes a spoiled celebrity out into the wilds for 48 hours, puts them to gruesome, terror-inducing workouts, then speaks with them about their life in between.
From Sunday, September 26th, join Jason Fox for a two-part series on Channel 4. After that, it will be available on the streaming site All4. We don’t have a release date for the United States yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
Foxy’s Fearless 48 Hours With…
Each celebrity will be taken into the woods by Jason Fox to prepare them for an extraordinary task. Rob Delaney’s task is to jump backward from a 150-foot viaduct. To prepare for this, he’ll have to first descend into a quarry known as “the quarry of doom” since 20 people have perished there. After that, he’ll have to face a high wire with a 90-meter drop before taking on the final challenge. “I feel fortunate and grateful to be able to accomplish this,” Rob adds. “Afraid? Sure. It’s both amusing and terrifying.”
The show is shot in Wales, and Foxy expresses his gratitude for the pleasant weather. “All of the episodes had fantastic weather, which is unheard of in Wales,” he explains. “We had great plans to go overseas, but we didn’t start until 2019, and then we stopped traveling entirely. Fortunately, Wales is a beautiful place with enough to see and do. The series’ benefit is that it demonstrates how much there is to do in the United Kingdom. It’s a long-forgotten site. It’s practically just outside our door. And the sunshine shone brightly on our back garden, thanks to the pleasant weather. However, I’m sure there will be a disclaimer in the fine print stating that these acts should not be attempted at home or in Wales.”

Jason Fox about Rob Delaney
Hardman Jason Fox has wowed TV audiences with his adventurous exploits, but he has a confession to make… He isn’t quite as fierce as he seems on our television screens.
When bungee jumping from a viaduct backward with Rob Delaney, the 45-year-old says he was terrified.
And Jason, or Foxy, from SAS: Who Dares Wins, admits he was afraid the American comic would die when he became confused about a safety belt during another high-wire stunt.
On Sunday, the two will participate in a bungee leap for Channel 4’s new star-studded adventure series, Foxy’s Fearless 48 Hours With…
Rob and Foxy traverse a high wire and leap down a 40-foot precipice into cold water in the show. Foxy says that he was worried at one time that Rob would pull the wrong piece of rope and fall to his death, however, he does not want to divulge too much.
“The high wires over the pit are a continuous exposure to height,” he explains. I realized it was a lot for someone to take in when we started giving out the brief, and when he said he was going to unclip something, I was like, ‘F***ing hell, we’re going to murder Rob Delaney… no, don’t.’
