SAS: Who Dares Wins is back and it's tipped to be more ruthless than ever before.

But viewers were left confused as to why Ant Middleton is still on the show despite being dropped by Channel 4.

Ant, 40, was let go back in March with Channel 4 claiming that its 'values are not aligned'.

At the time a spokesperson told LADbible: "Ant Middleton will not be taking part in future series of SAS: Who Dares Wins."

The statement went on: "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."

According to reports filming took place prior to Ant and Channel 4 parting ways.

The sixth series started with Middleton as the Chief Instructor and his team of Directing Staff (DS): Foxy and Billy.

This year the staff have been joined by a new DS called Melvyn Downes, 56, who has served 24 years in the British Military and 11 years in the SAS.

As well as a new DS, there's a host of recruits - including another undercover agent somewhere within the group.

Episode one kicked off with a 'hell run' (sounds pleasant) and we watched as things got too much for Shireen, quickly followed by Esther before Holly passed out.

The recruits then had a series of one-to-ones before they abseiled off an oil rig.

Surprisingly Grenfell firefighter Ricky Nuttall handed in his number, withdrawing himself from the show.

As the first episode came to a close, the DS pulled Recruit 5 into the interview room. As he sat down, the hood was removed and he was greeted with smiles, hugs and even a butty.

SAS: Who Dares Wins airs on Channel 4 at 9pm every Sunday.
