SAS: Who Dares Wins (Channel 4) has made a celeb out of Ant Middleton, a former Royal Marine and the Gordon Ramsay / Alan Sugar of mud-based actuality tv. He shouts, he swears, he says issues akin to “I’ll provide you with some brutal honesty… it is advisable toughen up”, which makes him sound like my previous driving teacher.
However because the present returned for a brand new season filmed on the Mordor-esque Scottish island of Raasay, newcomers to the franchise might have felt Middleton’s machismo was undermined by a sharp beard that was extra garden gnome than inexperienced beret. This killed the temper a bit. In full flight, Middleton resembled an over-sized garden decoration who secretly fancies his probabilities in opposition to Conor McGregor.
SAS: Who Dares Wins collection six will even be Middleton’s swan-song after he was dropped by Channel 4 final March resulting from “private conduct”. He had tweeted unflattering remarks about Black Lives Issues on social media. It was moreover claimed he made inappropriate feedback to feminine crew members – an allegation he denies.
The brand new season was filmed earlier than Middleton acquired his marching orders and it caught him in his aspect. A bone-crunching first episode can have ticked all of the packing containers for individuals who get pleasure from watching folks slathered in muck huffing up a hill as a big bushy man bawls at them.
Recruits had been required to scale a 4,000 foot mountain carrying large backpacks within the first of a succession of challenges impressed by SAS coaching. The 21 male and feminine hopefuls had been then requested to descend a rope suspended from an oil-rig, having been warned “you f–k this up you’re off the course, easy as that”.
