Anna Heinrich breaks down in tears and is set on fire during shocking SAS Australia trailer

''This course is going to be life-changing.''

A new trailer for the upcoming season of SAS Australia has dropped, showing Bachelor favourite Anna Heinrich being pushed to her breaking point.
The mother-of-one was shown crying hysterically while video chatting to her husband Tim Robards and their daughter Elle, one.
In the sneak peek of Anna's time on the gruelling military-style reality show, the 35-year-old was also seen competing in a range of tough challenges, including running while being literally set on fire.

"Why would someone like me, a mum, be able to take on a course like SAS?" she hypothetically asks in a voiceover.
"I don't think the public will think I'll go very far in this. I want to prove them wrong."
Anna also revealed she signed up for the show for her family, particularly her daughter, Elle.
"The one thing I want to give my daughter - if I tell her that she can do something, I want to believe it in myself," she tearily admits on-screen.

The trailer also shows Anna trying to break out of a moving vehicle and leaping from a helicopter into a freezing lake below.
"Every man and every woman is capable of more than they could ever know," chief instructor Ant Middleton says.
"I don't want to give up. This course is going to be life-changing," Anna adds.
Much like Jana Pittman, who competed on the show this year, Anna began training for the show just a few months after Elle was born. With filming kicking off in October, Anna was competing on the show 11 months after giving birth.

"Tim encouraged me [to do the show]. It was definitely something I never thought I'd be doing, there was just no way. It's so far out of my comfort zone," Anna previously said.
When the new cast was confirmed in October, Tim revealed on Instagram that he'd been working out with Anna.
"So proud of my girl for going ALL IN on this," the star wrote on Instagram. "However she goes it's been such an incredible journey even to this point."
The former Neighbours star went on to admit he "enjoyed" bossing Anna around to train - boxing together to work on her strength.
"I must admit though I have enjoyed ordering her around and shouting 'get up and go again!, but I won't miss the blows to the head she's been delivering in our boxing training," he said at the time.
"Whatever happens Daddy and Elle are extremely proud, slightly jealous, but also slightly relieved that it's not us."
