Channel 4 have cut all ties with Ant Middleton from SAS: Who Dares Wins, saying they won't work with him again due to his "personal conduct".

The former soldier-turned-TV-personality has been the frontman of the show, which sees celebrities and contestants alike take part in Special Air Service style challenges, since 2015. A spokesperson for the channel released a statement explaining:

"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."

Ant also took to social media to address him leaving the show, alleging it was his decision. He wrote on Twitter:

"After 5 incredible years I’ve decided it’s time to move on from SAS Who Dares Wins UK. Big respect to my fellow DS – it’s 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."

Ant recently faced backlash for his approach to the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, when he urged people to "carry on as normal" and alleged that the government advice did not apply to him because he is "strong and able".

In June, he was forced to apologise after referring to Black Lives Matter protesters as "absolute scum" (via BBC).
