The widowed dad inspiring the nation with his SAS adventure
At the time, I was completely helpless. I was on the phone to the police on the other line. Listening, talking. I didn’t know what had happened to the children until I heard the cry on the phone.

On Sunday night, viewers were left in floods of tears hearing the story of Dan Cross on SAS: Who Dares Wins. Dan revealed his shocking reason for entering the show, shortly before he was forced to withdraw with a knee injury. The stunned SAS trainers listened intently, as Dan revealed he had been on the phone to his wife, when a schizophrenic intruder broke in and stabbed her to death.
Dan has chosen to do this interview, because watching This Morning, (his wife’s favourite show), helped him through some of his darkest hours. He’s now using the experience to help others, through charity work and even training as a counsellor.
