Ant Middleton unleased his fury at Channel 4 following his axe from SAS: Who Dares Wins, and claims political correctness will take the ‘realness’ away from the show.

The former soldier, 41, was chief instructor on the military training series, however it was confirmed by the TV network that Middleton will no longer appear in the UK edition due to personal conduct concerns.

Although a couple of months have passed, it seems as though the outspoken adventurer is still fuming. The star addressed the ‘elephant in the room’ on his Mind Over Muscle speaking tour, and according to The Sun, he didn’t hold back.

‘W****rs! No, no, no, they’re not w****rs. They’re c***s. I’m never working for that channel again, am I? F*** it,’ he raged.

Middleton later claimed show bosses care too much about box ticking, which will result in a loss of ‘authenticity.’

‘When political correctness or box-ticking exercises filter into an authentic process, it’s gonna take away the authenticity, it takes away the realness,’ he added.

This wouldn’t be the first swipe Middleton has taken towards Channel 4, as he recently posted a picture of himself on Instagram, with a lengthy caption explaining how he’ll continue to ‘fight for authenticity’.

The father-of-five, who currently chief instructor of the Australian version of the show, shaded the network again as he praised his new work opportunity Down Under.

‘Huge respect and gratitude to @channel7 here in Australia for giving me back control of my show and making @sasaustralia,’ he wrote.

‘BY FAR the toughest and most authentic show on the planet! So proud to be part of the family! #realrecognisereal #leadingfromthefront #firstmanin #chiefinstructor.’

Several people complained about Middleton’s ‘inappropriate comments’ towards female staff members on set, which he dismissed as ‘indirect and just military banter’.
