Ant Middleton

English television personality

Anthony Middleton (born 22 September 1980) is a British adventurer, writer, television personality and former soldier. He is best known as the former Chief Instructor on the Channel 4 television series SAS: Who Dares Wins, a role he held from 2015 until 2021. Middleton also appeared as the Captain in the adventure/reality-show Mutiny and the survival show Escape. In 2018 he climbed Everest for the TV show Extreme Everest with Ant Middleton.[1]

Career[edit]

Military service[edit]

Middleton joined the army in 1998[2] at the age of 17 where he served in the 9 Parachute Squadron RE and served tours of duty in Northern Ireland in 1999 and Macedonia in 2001. After leaving the army[when?] he later enlisted in the Royal Marines in 2005. He passed out of his commando course in January 2006, winning the King's Badge for best all round recruit,[3] and was posted to B Company, 40 Commando. In 2007, he did his first tour in Afghanistan. In 2008 he joined the Special Boat Service, serving for four years as a sniper and point man.[4] In this time he completed two further tours in Afghanistan and reached the rank of corporal.[5][6] After leaving the military, Middleton worked as a security guard for VIPs, and later as a security expert in South Africa and for various West African governments.[7]

Television[edit]

Middleton was the Chief Instructor on SAS: Who Dares Wins, a reality quasi-military training television programme produced by Channel 4, which was first broadcast in 2015. The show propelled Middleton into celebrity limelight. Mutiny, an adventure/reality crossover show, screened on UK television in February 2017, with Middleton starring as boat captain alongside eight volunteering participants.[8] The show was a re-enactment of the infamous Mutiny on the Bounty and Middleton described the experience as "mentally speaking, the hardest thing I've ever done".[9] In March 2021, Middleton was dropped by Channel 4 over his personal conduct.[10]

Publications[edit]

In 2017, Middleton co-authored his first book, SAS: Who Dares Wins: Leadership Secrets from the Special Forces, with his fellow TV presenters and Special Forces colleagues Jason Fox, Matthew "Ollie" Ollerton and Colin Maclachlan. Middleton's autobiography, First Man In: Leading from the Front, was published in 2018, becoming a Number 1 Sunday Times best-seller.[11] His second book,The Fear Bubble: Harness Fear and Live Without Limits, was published in 2019, and was also No.1 on The Sunday Times best-seller chart. His third book, Zero Negativity, was published in 2020.

Other[edit]

On 14 May 2018, Middleton summited Mount Everest with Ed Wardle, completing the climb over a five and a half week period. The pair nearly died when they were caught in a blizzard behind a group of ten climbers who hampered their progress during the descent.[12][13][14]

In November 2019 Middleton was appointed as Chief Cadet and Honorary Captain in the Royal Navy's Volunteer Cadet Corps.[15][16] He left the position nine months later amidst controversy surrounding a comment he made on Twitter, which appeared to compare Black Lives Matter protesters with the English Defence League as extremists and "scum", though he later said he was not equating the two groups.[17][18]

Personal life[edit]

Middleton was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire, and brought up in France.[19]

Middleton was convicted of the unlawful wounding of one police officer and common assault upon a second in 2013. He was sentenced to 14 months in prison, of which he served four months.[20][21]

Jason Fox has a second daughter with his present wife Lucy Culkin that he has abandoned. He has not seen/contacted his daughter Honor born 2012 for over 4 years.

Career

Military:

Fox joined the Royal Marine Commandos at 16, serving for 10 years, after which he passed the gruelling selection process for the Special Forces, serving with the Special Boat Service. He also trained as a combat swimmer, demolitions expert, Special Forces dog handler and jungle survival expert.[1]

As part of his service, Jason planned and led operations including hostage rescue, counter terrorism, counter insurgency, maritime counter terrorism, surveillance, body guarding and counter narcotic missions.[2]

He was diagnosed with PTSD and medically discharged in 2012.[3]

Television:

Fox used his wealth of experience in the Special Forces to support television production crews who were working in environmentally hostile areas including the jungle, the arctic, the desert and at sea.

This included a role as the support diver for the archaeological team that found the lost treasure of Captain Kidd - one of the most prolific pirates of the 17th century - just off the coast of Madagascar.[4]

From this he was contacted about working on a television show exploring the selection process for the Special Forces which turned into his first front of the camera role for Channel 4’s prime-time hit show, SAS: Who Dares Wins. The series follows 30 contestants each season who are put through the SAS’s selection process in the ultimate test of their physical and – more importantly – psychological resilience. The successful series has been praised for drawing in a significant share of young audiences and receiving critical acclaim.

Jason’s success in SAS: Who Dares Wins led to him taking on the role of presenter in Channel 4’s flagship show for 2018, Meet the Drug Lords: Inside the Real Narcos. In the series Jason visited Mexico, Columbia and Peru meeting the very people he once fought against, from the cartel leaders to the hitmen, smugglers and dealer they employ.  

Record Breaker

In 2016 Jason was part of Team Essence, a five man crew that rowed the longest route across the Atlantic Ocean in aid of the NSPCC. Setting off from Lagos in Portugal it took 50 days to reach Venezuela, completing a 3,308-nautical-mile journey and becoming the first ever team to row non-stop and unsupported across the Atlantic from mainland Europe to mainland South America.[5]

Charity work

As well rowing the Atlantic for the NSPCC, Jason has trekked to the North Pole for the charity Borne to help raise money for research into premature birth. It is a cause close to his heart as Jason himself was born two months premature.

In 2015 Jason co-founded Rock 2 Recovery. The organisation helps to fight against stress in our armed forces, veterans and their families. He is also an ambassador for Veterans 4 Wildlife that supports the prevention of wildlife crime and has lent support to Movember to raise awareness for prostate cancer.[6]

Corporate

Jason regularly provides keynote speeches and live experiences for organisations and businesses as well as motivational and team building workshops through the organisation Break-Point. Jason set up Break-Point in 2015 with fellow SAS: Who Dares Wins DS, Matthew Ollerton. The workshops are designed to replicate pressurised environments by designing packages for the ultimate team building exercise including being put thorough challenging and gruelling military drills.[7]

Book

Jason co-authored his first book in 2017 SAS: Who Dares Wins: Leadership Secrets from the Special Forces with his fellow TV presenters and special forces colleagues Antony Middleton, Matthew Ollerton and Colin Maclachlan.

In November 2018 Jason will release his own autobiography, Battle Scars. It tells the story of his career as an elite operator, from the gunfights, hostage rescues, daring escapes and heroic endeavours that defined his service, to a battle of a very different kind: the psychological devastation of combat that ultimately forced him to leave the military, and the hard reality of what takes place in the mind of a man once a career of imagined invincibility has come to an end.[8]

During this time he passed the Special Forces selection process and served with the Special Boat Service.

Who is Ant Middleton on SAS: Who Dares Wins?

While in the SBS, Fox planned and led operations including hostage rescue, counter-terrorism, counterinsurgency, maritime counter-terrorism, surveillance, bodyguarding and counter-narcotics missions.

He also trained as a combat swimmer, demolitions expert, Special Forces dog handler and jungle survival expert.

He left the Special Forces in 2012.

Why did he leave the Special Forces?

Fox spent spent more than three years fighting in a war in Afghanistan  that saw some of the fiercest battles in modern British military history. He saw friends killed and seriously injured in combat, and narrowly escaped death multiple times.

This left him with a punishing personal legacy: PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Because of this, he was discharged from the Special Forces and made to leave behind the life and job he loved.

What has he said about suffering from PTSD?

He wrote a best-selling book, Battle Scars, about his time serving in the military services and the effect it had on his mental health.

He reckons that had he not had help, he may have ended up dead.

He told LadBible: “I’d have either been completely reckless and died being away, just throwing caution to the wind because that’s one thing I think I might have done, or I’d have gone into a massive fit of depression at some point and probably killed myself.”

Jason travels back from the frontline to Laskargah in an armoured Humvee in Foxy’s War (Photo: Channel 4)

He added: “I was like a big non-believer in PTSD and mental health issues in soldiers because I’d hear stories of people suffering from experiencing combat. I’d done years prior to that and I was fine, so I’d be like ‘what you going on about – I’ve been in some proper scrapes and I’m still alright.’

“Then fast-forward 12 months or so and I’m eating a big slice of humble pie.

“All of a sudden I was finished and I didn’t know what to do – it’s like being trained up in something and never being allowed to do it again. It’s like, what do I do next?”

What has he appeared in since leaving the military service?

Fox left the Special Forces in 2012 and moved into the TV and film industry.

Initially, Jason supported production crews who were filming in hostile environments such as the jungle, the Arctic and the desert.

However, in 2015, Jason made his on-screen debut in Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins.

The series follows 30 men put through the SAS selection process – the ultimate test of their physical and psychological resilience.

In 2018, Foxy presented a new ground-breaking prime-time show for Channel 4 – Meet the Drug Lords – Inside the Real Narcos. Jason headed unarmed into the heart of Latin America’s billion-dollar cartels to confront the kinds of criminals he once hunted.

In May 2019, The Final Mission: Foxy’s War saw him head back to Afghanistan, where he served almost a decade ago – and where he endured harrowing combat experiences during multiple tours of duty.

Does he do any charity work?

Off-screen, he has undertaken several charity challenges including a record-breaking row across the Atlantic with Team Essence and walking to the North Pole with Will Greenwood MBE and Alan Chambers MBE.

Fox is the co-founder of Rock 2 Recovery, which helps returning serviceman, veterans and their families.

He is also an ambassador of Veterans 4 Wildlife, which campaigns against wildlife crime.
