Pete Murray addresses his lack of airtime on SAS Australia and reveals the truth about the show’s editing
The latest season of SAS Australia has truly tested the 18 celebrities who have competed so far – but there is one competitor who has had a lack of screen time.
Pete Murray has been missing in action in the first three episodes of the hit Channel Seven series.
Now the 51-year-old singer has posted a video to Instagram to explain why he’s missed the spotlight as the celebrities compete in their gruelling challenges.
Where’s Pete? Pete Murray has addressed his edit on SAS Australia because audiences haven’t ‘seen any task’ the singer has done on the show so far
‘Hey guys, hope you’re well, just wanted to say sorry, you still haven’t seen any task that I’ve done on SAS,’ he said.
‘Unfortunately, that’s just the way that the show’s been edited, and I know some of you guy’s are getting a little bit frustrated.’
Pete states in the video that he will be discussing the tasks he’s done at a later date.

He also shared his experiences while working with the drill instructors and how instrumental they were on the courses.
‘One thing I will say, is the DS on the show are amazing guys and if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have completed these tasks,’ the singer continued. ‘They are specialists in this area.’
Pete explained his mindset from the beginning of the series and how it helped him on the show.

‘When I first went on the show, and we lined up there that day and Ant (Middleton) said, ‘If you listen to us, every word we say to you, you will complete this course.”
And I took that approach of being a soldier when we were doing these tasks and listened to every single word these guys said – and it is the only way I got through them,’ he added.
Pete’s fellow competitors also chimed in on the musician’s reflection on the series.

‘You pushed your body & mind to new limits every f**king day mate.’
Songstress Bonnie Anderson commented, ‘You’re amazing Pete!’
