This guy has lied about being in the sas.
A TELLY hardman who carved out a lucrative career as an SAS hero can today be exposed by The Sun as a FAKE.
Bob Spour built up a business empire bragging about his service with the Who Dares Wins regiment.
Now the TV regular, radio presenter and magazine columnist even runs a skills school dubbed "SAS Survival".
Fake ... interviewed by Sun man
But SAS sources have confirmed to us that the 56-year-old never even attempted Special Forces selection -- let alone served with the elite unit.
In reality, he spent two years as a regular infantry trooper.
But in a recent article about his time in the SAS, he boasts: "I got involved in lots of little frolics around the world."
Spour -- who had a starring role in National Geographic series The Perfect Weapon -- could now face a criminal inquiry for fraud.
Last night, suppliers offered full refunds for his DVD -- SAS Fight Secrets Seminar.
Badge of pride ... SAS
Spour claims to have served with G Squadron between 1977 and 1984, seeing action in the Falklands War, Northern Ireland and South America.
He traded off the turmoil of real heroes by claiming he suffered trauma over the horrors of the Falklands -- which he never saw.
But Spour was less brave when we confronted him yesterday at his home in a well-off Birmingham suburb.
He told our man: "I need to speak to a solicitor" -- then ducked back inside after spotting our photographer.
Spour promised to get back to us, but never did -- failing to answer his phone.
Sun Security Advisor and real ex-SAS hero Andy McNab said last night: "To claim to be part of a Regiment that gives their lives to their country makes me sick.
"Spour is lying about things he can only dream about."
