ANT Middleton thinks he’s a lot like Piers Morgan in that he’s hard done by for being who he is and won’t change for anyone.
The former soldier was dumped by Channel 4 from the UK version of SAS: Who Dares Wins after it said it would not be working again with the 40-year-old after clashes over his “personal conduct”.

But now the TV host has claimed he had plenty of job offers coming in after his public sacking.
He vowed to return to the telly, but only under the right condition.
“This last week so many doors have opened, production companies and channels calling me,” he said on the The Diary of A CEO podcast.
“You get cancelled then that’s your career done but you’ve got Piers Morgans, Jeremy Clarksons and now you’ve got your Ant Middletons. I’m not going to be comfortable with everyone, and I’m not going to be their cup of tea.

“Well that’s fine because guess what, I don’t want to work with you.”
Ant added: “If I get questioned one little bit about who I am by any brands, any sponsors, any channels, then I will not work with them. I will say listen, thank you very much. It’s obviously not the right match.”
“People have to realise that this is a work in progress it is not something I can change overnight. You need to understand that’s who I am.”
Piers dramatically quit his hosting duties on Good Morning Britain earlier this month as tensions boiled over in light of Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The host clashed with colleague Alex Beresford on GMB about his views, which lead to Piers storming off set live on national television.
Ant has claimed his split with Channel 4 came because TV bosses had turned the intensive survival series into a “reality show”.

Earlier this month, Middleton claimed he had quit before C4 said it would not be asking him to return.
Ant told The Sun: “I have decided to walk away from it, it is clear Channel 4 and I have fallen out over it and that is regretful. I have butted heads with some of the team but ultimately it is out of a passion for what I wanted to do and that’s make the best show possible.”
The station insisted its concerns were not in relation to his on-screen persona.
A spokesperson said: “Our decision not to renew Ant Middleton’s contract and not to work with him again was solely based on his personal conduct off camera.”
