Saira Khan has denied claims she's taking legal action against SAS: Who Dares Wins after bring life with "lifelong scars".

Former Loose Women star Saira, 51, can be seen taking part in the latest series of the show alongside Kerry Katona, Vicky Pattison and Wes Nelson, which is set in the remote island of Raasay in the Scottish Hebrides.

This series of the gruelling challenge show is said to be "one of the toughest selection courses yet".

As the first episode of the series aired on Sunday 29 August, it's been claimed Saira revealed she was left in "shock" when she was badly hurt during an undisclosed incident.

Saira is then said to have revealed to The Sun she is taking legal action. According to the publication, she said: "Unfortunately legally I can't go into much detail about it because it's still ongoing.

"I was left with lifelong scars, physical ones. That's very hard to cope with.

"I am a very fit individual and to go onto a show and then have experienced what I did, I was in real shock.

"The show was great in supporting, but it's gone beyond that. It's gone onto something a bit bigger than that."

Saira has since denied the claims as she posted on her Instagram story with: "There is no legal action taking place between myself and @MinnowFilms who make @SASWhoDaresWins

"I loved every minute of being part of this show."

She continued: "I have been fully supported by all at @Channel4 and @MinnowFilms end of! Enjoy the show."

OK! has contacted Channel 4, which airs Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, for comment.

Saira, who recently said Loose Women never thanked her for opening up on abuse, left behind her glam lifestyle to take part in the show.

Following her participation in the series, she announced her decision to leave Loose Women.

"I did take drastic steps," she explained while reflecting on her decision. "I left Loose Women and, interestingly, Andrea McLean left Loose Women after doing SAS.

"It changes your life. You realise you've got to cut through the s**t and start living.

"When you're stripped of everything as a naked woman all you have to depend upon is yourself.

"That's very telling, very strong and most people will never experience that.

"I didn't want to go back to the same s**t, getting the same results, so I changed my life.

"I'm actually very happy about it." Saira's life-changing experience on the show has meant she doesn't regret taking part in the series, despite her injury – but does have mixed feelings.

She explained: "I kind of look back on that experience partly kicking myself.

"Thinking why did I have to do to prove myself because I've now caused myself something for life.

"At the same time I wouldn't have not done it because it's the person I am. I needed to go and prove something to myself.

"I've never felt successful in my life, ever. Doing SAS, I knew I was strong but I felt strong. I proved to myself that I don't need to prove myself.

"Up until the point of doing SAS I had never appreciated what I'd got.

"Going to that level of extremity really made me realise I've got to stop. I don't need to keep proving myself, but just enjoy what I've got and celebrate what I've achieved.

"For me this show will always be really special because it was deeply personal.

"I think for the first time ever in my life I was really proud of myself. That's quite a hard thing to say for me, but I really was."
