Ollie Ollerton

Matthew 'Ollie' Ollerton is a former Special Forces soldier and a member of the Directing Staff in Channel 4's hit show SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Ollie's military career began at the age of 18 when he joined the Royal Marine Commandos and toured operationally in Northern Ireland and in Iraq for Operation Desert Storm.

After completing the gruelling 6-month-long SAS selection process, Ollie joined the Special Boat Service. During his six years in the SBS, Ollie's missions included counter-narcotics, counter-terrorism, homeland security, counter-insurgency operations and humanitarian efforts.

Upon leaving the Special Forces, Ollie worked in Iraq as a private security contractor before heading to South East Asia, using his incredible military training to benefit the lives of those less fortunate. While working for a charity, he was lead command of a three-man team bravely infiltrating child trafficking rings, rescuing children and bringing them to safe houses.
