A SOLDIER who lost a leg in Iraq was airlifted from a Bear Grylls survival show after being stung by a scorpion and suffering post traumatic stress disorder.
Corporal Hannah Campbell said she was left in agony by the scorpion attack and then had flashbacks during a tropical storm.
The 31-year-old, who also lost an eye when she was blown up and buried in rubble in 2007, said: “We were on an island off Panama and there was a giant thunderstorm. The crashes were like explosions. It happened in the pitch-black of night.
Hannah, of 19 Tank Transporter Squadron, was on guard duty in Basra when a mortar attack made her the Army’s only mum to be blown up on the front line.
She was given a less than 10 per cent chance of survival.
But she fought back, ran the London Marathon and wrote a book called Never Broken.
Hannah, of Northampton, has two daughters — Milly, 11, and Lexi, two. Like other contestants, she had medical tests before being cleared to take part in The Island With Bear Grylls.
A source at the Channel 4 show, returning next month, said: “She was gutted. She is the first to have to be evacuated in the three series.”
