ANT Middleton is back for his final series on Sunday, August 29, 2021, as he is set to host the newest instalment of Celebrity SAS on Channel 4.
The latest season of the show was filmed on the Scottish Isle of Raasay in March, 2021, which meant the star presenter was away from his family and his wife Emilie for a number of weeks.
Who is Ant Middleton's wife Emilie Middleton?
Ant Middleton met Emilie in Essex back in 2004.
Emilie revealed how fame went to her husband's head when SAS: Who Dares Wins took off and almost ruined their marriage.
Writing in Ant's book Zero Negativity Emilie told how life in the limelight affected their family.
The mother-of-five said the dramatic change in circumstances "turned family life upside down."
She wrote: "Then almost overnight we went from an existence where nobody knew anything about my husband and how he was spending his time, to realising that millions of people thought they knew everything about him."
"I’d meet people on the street and they would talk to me like they knew him. For a year, maybe more, I struggled to adjust to it."
"When you’re married to someone famous you understand very quickly that the days of you being able to control every element of your life is over. We were all caught by surprise by the impact SAS: Who Dares Wins had on us."
"There wasn’t any part of us that thought the show would become what it has. In our heads it would be a one-off show watched by ten people. Instead, it exploded."
"He’d be there, in the same room as his family, tapping on his phone, oblivious to us because he was sending messages to this or that fan," she said.
"He was with us but at the same time he wasn’t really there. It went to his head and stuff teetered a bit for us.
"That’s not a shock. If I had thousands of strangers sending me messages on Instagram telling me how great I was, I bet my head would swell up too. Who wouldn’t float up in that bubble? Anyone who says it wouldn’t affect them is lying. I spent a lot of time bringing him back to earth, mostly by nagging him."
Emilie was perhaps relieved to find out that her husband will not be hosting any more instalment of SAS, celebrity or otherwise.
The former Royal Marine was axed from his position in March, 2021, with Channel 4 citing a difference of "views and values."
Ant also announced that he would be moving to Australia, after deciding to leave "pretentious" Britain behind. These comments came after he found himself at the heart of controversy in June, 2020.
He was then at the core of social media backlash after posting a video of violence at anti-racism protests in London, tweeting: "The extreme left against the extreme right. BLM and EDL are not welcome on our streets, absolute scum. What a great example you are to your future generation. Bravo."
He was informed of his abrupt sacking on March 1, 2021.
How many children do they have?
Ant Middleton and his wife Emilie are parents to five children.
Emilie gave birth to their first daughter, Shyla, in September 2007, and then son Gabriel in March 2009.
Priseis then came along in September 2015, and Bligh, in October 2016.
Their oldest son, Oakley, is from Ant's previous relationship.
Is Emilie Middleton on social media?
Emilie is on Twitter but hasn't posted anything since 2017.
She also has an Instagram account which is set to private, under the handle @emiliemiddleton03.
Her bio says she's Mrs Middleton, 1/2 Mumma to Oakley, Mumma to Shyla & Priseïs, Mumma to Gabriel & Bligh and Fur Mumma to Roxy.
