Do a former England football captain, Heart FM radio presenter and Love Island contestant have what it takes to be part of Britain's armed forces?

We've been putting celebrities through their paces with an intense military driving experience they are never going to forget.

LISTEN: On Track With Stuart Pearce

Each celebrity took on a series of challenges aimed at equipping them with the skills to pass the official test to qualify as a military vehicle driver in the British Army.

First to take on the muddy challenge was one of England’s most loved football icons, Stuart Pearce MBE, affectionately known to his fans as ‘Psycho’ because of his dedication to football.

"My sporting history suggests that I'm not particularly subtle so I'm going to actually go on that same vein again I think. Subtly won't be played."

Stuart along with his co-stars Heart FM's Jenni Falconer and Love Island's Georgia Steel were given an exclusive insight into the incredible expertise that the British military demonstrates all over the world every day.

"On days like this, you start to realise what the forces go through you know.

"When you're in action, you're under pressure and you've got to deliver, it's never easy."

Jay James and Amy Casey from the Big Shows joined Stuart while he took on challenges like the Abbot Course and The Knife Edge Balance, just to add a little more pressure to an already stressful situation. 

"Enjoyable, exhilarating, nerve-wracking.

"When you consider you're operating under pressure, under fire, whatever it might be, it's a really tough way to earn a living, that's for sure."

You can hear 'On Track With Georgia Steel' from 6pm on Tuesday November 6. She will choose some of her favourite songs, tell us what went on behind the scenes on Love Island and reveal her amazing extreme driving skills.
