Ant Middleton will star in SAS: Who Dares Wins series 6 and Celebrity version despite being fired over ‘personal conduct’

Ant Middleton will appear on an upcoming series of SAS: Who Dares Wins following the news he was axed from the programme.

The TV star shot a new series of both the civilian version and the celebrity version of the show before he was dropped.

The programme puts members of the public and celebrities through the tough Special Forces selection process.

Channel 4 confirmed to Metro.co.uk that they plan to air the series later this year.

The 40-year-old joined the series in 2015 but will no longer appear in the UK edition, however he will still take part in Australian version.

A spokesperson for Channel 4 told Metro.co.uk in a statement: ’Ant Middleton will not be taking part in future series of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

‘Following a number of discussions Channel 4 and Minnow Films have had with him in relation to his personal conduct it has become clear that our views and values are not aligned and we will not be working with him again.’

It comes after the presenter and former British soldier appeared to announce the news of his exit on Monday with a post on Instagram, saying it had been a ‘journey he’ll never forget.’

‘Hi guys, I’ve got some news which is that after 5 incredible years I’ve decided it’s time to move on from SAS Who Dares Wins UK,’ he wrote.

‘Big respect to my fellow DS – its been a journey I’ll never forget. Thanks to everyone that took part and made the show what it is. Really excited about the future and what’s coming this year. Stay positive.’

It comes after Ant reportedly quit his role as Chief Cadet of the Volunteer Cadet Corp with the Royal Navy after receiving backlash for a tweet about Black Lives Matter during the protests last year.

Sources claimed at the time he decided to step down due to bosses at the organisation reportedly being unhappy over his tweet in June, in which he appeared to describe both Black Lives Matter and far-right protesters as ‘scum’.

The 2019 series saw women take part for the first time while celebrity versions of the show have included the likes of Katie Price, Andrea McLean, Joey Essex and Anthea Turner.
