SAS Who Dares Wins fans were left gutted after Holly quit and handed over her armband during a 3k mountain climb.
Holly made history as the first transgender recruit, but the physical demand became too much for her in Sunday’s episode.
The aerial dancer had a tough start to the show last week as she collapsed on a trek up a mountain.
However, she overcame her fears and impressed the officers on the show as she jumped off an oil rig at a rapid rate.
Fans were looking forward to seeing Holly’s progress throughout the show.
Unfortunately, Holly quit within minutes of a 3k mountain climb as she struggled to keep up physically.
Holly admitted: “My mental strength might be good, but physically I’m not up to the job.”
Recruit 13 Holly handed over their armband to Ant Middleton.
Ant told Holly: “You should be proud of where you got to.”
She added: “My life has been a hard journey and it’s important to me to have control over myself so I can make my own decisions and make progress with my life and journey.”
Fans who were supporting Holly were left disappointed as she couldn’t go on any longer.
One viewer said: “Gutted holly left was hoping she would get further."
A second wrote: "Shame that Holly left, was rooting for her to complete the whole thing."
Another penned: “Nooooooo Holly!!!! #SASWhoDaresWins Well done tho hun xx”
Former SAS soldier and instructor Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham disclosed how gruelling the programme is.
Billy told the media: “This is going to be hard, you need resilience, you need grit, you need determination.
"We’re not here to mess around. We’re here to give you time, experience and this is where it starts.
