Furthermore, Jason is a trained combat swimmer, demolitions expert, Special Forces dog handler and jungle survival expert.
Leaving the Special Forces in 2012 and moving into the TV and Film industry, Jason initially used his wealth of experience in the Special Forces to support production crews who were working in environmentally hostile areas, such as the jungle, the arctic or the desert.
During this period, Jason was part of a team of divers who found the lost treasure of Captain Kidd – one of the most prolific pirates of the 17th century – just off the coast of Madagascar.
Jason Fox now stars in front of the camera for Channel 4’s hit series SAS: Who Dares Wins. Along with his Ex. Special Forces team, Jason puts members of the public through SAS Selection, in the ultimate test of physical and psychological resilience.
Meet The Drug Lords: Inside The Real Narcos
In 2018, Jason fronted his own ground-breaking series Meet The Drug Lords: Inside The Real Narcos. Hailed as Channel 4’s flagship show of the year, the series took over two years to shoot, featuring unique editorial and graphic scenes, making never before seen TV.
Putting their lives at risk multiple times, the crew consisted of just 4, including Jason. Due to his vast experience, Jason was an invaluable producer on the series.
The series earned front covers, critics’ choice across all the broadsheet and national coverage in print, digital and broadcast media. Furthermore, the series was one of 2018’s most downloaded programmes on All 4, attracting a large share of 16-24-year-olds.
Receiving critical acclaim and dubbed ‘the narcos whisperer’, Jason has leapt to the forefront of documentary film making & presenting. Netflix has since acquired the series.

Off-screen, Jason has undertaken several charity challenges including a record-breaking row across the Atlantic with Team Essence and walking to the North Pole with Will Greenwood MBE and Alan Chambers MBE.
In 2019, Jason will be taking on the ‘Poor Mans Gold Rush’; a 2,000mile kayak and 49mile trek through Alaska and Canada. He will be raising funds for the Special Boat Service Association and a charity which he co-founded – Rock2RecoveryUK.
