CALUM BEST didn’t inherit his dad George’s footballing gifts – but he likes to put in a crunching tackle.
The Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins contestant broke co-star Jonathan Broom-Edwards’ ribs during the Murder Ball section on this Sunday’s episode, forcing the Paralympic high-jumper out of the competition.

Calum added: “If he got injured from me tackling him in bounds, f***ing so be it.
"But the fact I was called out for doing it out of bounds, I thought, ‘Oh no, not only have I been called out for not doing it right, he’s got broken ribs’.”
