Ant will be in Australia in September & October 2023 and is available for local Speaking engagements.
Best known in Australia for his role as Chief Instructor on Channel 7’s hit series, SAS Australia, Ant Middleton has become a much-loved master of survival and endurance on and off the screen, spurred by his formidable career in the UK’s elite forces, including the Marines, 9 Parachute Squadron and Special Boat Service.
Joining the armed forces at the age of 16, Ant earned the position of a point man/lead scout as well as a primary fires operator and sniper, before eventually earning a place in the Special Forces Selection, achieving the ‘Holy Trinity’ of the UK’s Elite Forces.
With an insatiable appetite for adventure, 2017 saw Ant front Mutiny (Channel 4 UK), a show that re-enacted Captain William Bligh’s voyage following his crew’s mutiny, commonly known as the ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’. Ant has also fronted Channel 4’s survivalist programme Escape, centred on placing skilled engineers in precarious situations where they must use their skills to escape their predicament and get to safety.
2019 saw him conquer one of the biggest feats known to man, Mount Everest, in the hits show Extreme Everest. Whilst getting trapped in an unexpected, life-threatening storm, he seeks to understand the attraction of such a popular, but dangerous challenge.
Following a successful first series with Liam Payne, his most recent expedition saw him take Hollywood A-lister, Rebel Wilson, on a thrill-seeking road trip through Mexico to get to know the ‘real Rebel’, in the second series of Straight Talking, which aired on Channel 7 and 7plus.
Since 2017, Ant has regularly sold-out venues across the UK and Australia, with his Mind Over Muscle live show. Ant tells his story and gives a glimpse into his life in the military, his training techniques and experiences that have helped him deal with any situation that life has thrown at him.
Ant’s publishing has reached record heights. His first two books, First Man In and The Fear Bubble are both Sunday Times Best Sellers in the UK, earning him gold status at the Nielsen Awards. He released his latest non-fiction trilogy, Zero Negativity, in Autumn 2020, which was also a Sunday Times Best Seller, and his debut fiction thriller, Cold Justice, was published in October and was the no.1 debut thriller of 2021.
