British survival experts have joined the doubters who've questioned how backpacker JAMIE NEALE survived for 12 days lost in the Blue Mountains.

Former SAS commander ANDY MCNAB and ex-special forces officer KEN HAMES say they're astounded that the 19-year-old's still alive after enduring sub-zero temperatures and eating only berries.

NEALE'S father's repeatedly rejected claims that the story's a hoax .. despite his son having reportedly signed a 200 thousand dollar deal with the Nine Network's 60 Minutes program.
