New SAS: Who Dares Wins Host Rips Into Ant Middleton

New SAS: Who Dares Wins Host Rips Into Ant Middleton

The new chief instructor of SAS: Who Dares Wins has hit out at Ant Middleton.

Rudy Reyes, who will be replacing Middleton on the Channel 4 show, has boasted that he's got more 'decorum' as well as 'combat experience'. Alpha male versus alpha male, clearly!

When asked by The Sun about the differences between him and Middleton, Reyes said: "I just think I have decorum and don’t curse and say misogynistic things while everyone is listening.

“That’s the difference, and I have more combat experience - and if that makes me woke, then fantastic.”

Ant was dropped from the show earlier this year over his 'personal conduct', with Channel 4 issuing a statement that said: "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."


After he was let go, Middleton spoke out about being fired by the 'w*****s' and 'woke patrol' at the broadcaster.

He said: "We weren’t pretending to be anything other than what we were - uncompromising alpha males from the military.

“That’s obviously the opposite of the show they want now. The woke patrol have their victory, and I’ll be very interested to see where the series goes next.”

The new Directing Staff line up for the show was announced in October with former US Recon Marine Rudy being pictured for the first time alongside another newcomer - former US Navy SEAL Remi Adeleke.


They will be joining Jason 'Foxy' Fox and Mark 'Billy' Billingham to form the new elite directing staff team.

In a statement, Channel 4 said: "Further cementing the 'special relationship' between the United Kingdom and United States, the new directing staff band of brothers will join forces to draw on their military experiences from both sides of the Atlantic, to create the toughest selection course yet.

"Testing their mental and physical ability, in the unforgiving Middle Eastern heat in Jordan, the new cohort of civilian and celebrity recruits will discover whether they have what it takes to pass this unique SAS selection course."
