has ripped into the new series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, going as far as branding his replacement Rudy Reyes ‘uglier’.

The Channel 4 show returned to the network on Sunday night enduring the brutal temperatures of the Jordan desert.

However, former chief instructor Ant is not part of the latest offering after it was announced last March that he had left the show due to ‘personal conduct’.

Despite no longer being involved in the UK version of the show, Ant still took time to critique the new episode as well as newcomer Rudy, a former US Marine Corp.

Taking aim at Rudy, Ant tweeted: ‘If a US Marine tried to run a Delta Force selection process, he would be laughed at and get a good old fashion kick in.’

Responding to the post, a fan replied: ‘They tried to make the other guy to look like you with a wig on.’

Ant then fired another blow, adding: ‘And uglier.’

But his comments about the new series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins didn’t stop there.

Communicating with a fan who called the new show ‘p*ss poor’, Ant said: ‘Of course it is!!! I built that show from the ground up. You take away the Big Mac sauce and you no longer have a one of a kind Big Mac burger, you just simply have a burger….’

In another post, he said: ‘Only I knew how to glue the course together and now it’s become a military boot camp show! Shame but if you want a giggle on a Sunday evening then it’s perfect for that!’

Ant’s departure from SAS: Who Dares Wins was announced last March after several people had complained about  which he dismissed as ‘indirect and just military banter’.

Channel 4 said in a statement: ‘Ant Middleton will not be taking part in future series of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

‘Following a number of discussions Channel 4 and Minnow Films have had with him in relation to his personal conduct it has become clear that our views and values are not aligned and we will not be working with him again.’

Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins continues on Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.
