RTÉ viewers brand Ultimate Hell Week ‘best show in years’ after latest episode

RTÉ viewers have branded Ultimate Hell Week the “best show in years” after the latest episode.

The series follows a host of famous faces as they take part in a gruelling special forces selection course designed by former members of Ireland’s elite Special Forces unit, the Army Ranger Wing (ARW).

With a failure rate upwards of 90%, only the toughest candidates will survive.

The celebrity line-up includes singer Jake Carter, former rugby player Peter Stringer, professional dancer Laura Nolan, footballer Stephanie Roche, actor Ryan Andrews, reality star Marc O’Neill, former GAA player Eamon McGee, and popular influencer Niamh Cullen.

Cork GAA star Valerie Mulcahy, weatherman Deric Hartigan, online comedian Rory O’Connor, former rugby player Andrew Trimble, musician Barry Murphy, swimmer Melanie Nocher, RTÉ teacher John Sharpson, model and influencer Paul Olima, rugby player Anna Caplice and former GAA star Darran O’Sullivan are also on the show.

This week saw the celebrities compete in a boat race and pick up their boxing gloves to battle it out with one another.

The grueling episode saw both Ryan Andrews and Deric Hartigan break a rib, with Deric being forced to leave the show.

Niamh Cullen, Valerie Mulcahy and Darren O’Sullivan also left the programme this week after failing to complete a part of the course.

Reacting to last night’s epiosde, one viewer tweeted: “Have to say #HellWeek is the best show @rte has made in years!!”

Another wrote: “Best show on RTÈ by a country mile #HellWeek.”

Ultimate Hell Week – The Professionals continues next Wednesday at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
