SAS: Who Dares Wins drag queen contestant made her army colonel dad proud


Mark, 31, is one of 25 contestants on the new series of SAS: Who Dares Wins. He unveiled his drag alter ego Cybil War appearing on Good Morning Britain. Cybil confessed that she stepped into the show for her dad, who was actually in SAS. “You wouldn’t expect a SAS hero like your dad to have a son – and I say this with great respect – who’d end up being a drag queen, who also wanted to compete in a SAS program,” said host Piers Morgan. Yes, Mr. Morgan, we would, and such a remark from you did not come as a surprise as well. The conversation swiftly moved to drag and coming out, with Cybil explaining that she began experimenting with the artform while living in New York six years ago and her dad took it as well as a stoic army colonel ever could. Morgan continued by asking Cybil how her dad had reacted to her coming out as a drag queen, saying: “Being gay is one thing for your dad – your parents – to deal with. Being a seven foot drag queen is not something most SAS guys probably come across very often.” Cybil explained that her dad said only that he liked Dame Edna. When asked whether she felt she had something to prove to her dad in going on Who Dares Wins, Cybil admitted: “A little bit.” “Part of the reason for going on the show was to get a sliver of a glimpse of an insight into what he went through in his long and decorated career,” she said.
