TELLY hardman Ant Middleton moaned about having to curb his behaviour in public just weeks before he was axed from SAS: Who Dares Wins.
Ant, 40, said he was “frustrated” by continually having to watch what he said in case his words “offended someone”.
Speaking out in January, the tough nut even vowed ‘never to change’ his outspoken personality.
In an overseas radio interview, Ant said: “I’ve had to curve [sic] my way of thinking and that has really frustrated me.
“That might be due to something that I’ve said that has offended someone.
“You’re always going to offend someone. It’s really hard.”
He told Dubai Eye 103.8 Sport: “I’ve always said to myself that I’ll never change that way of me.
“You have to be really, really careful and constantly think on your feet.”
Ant is understood to have left SAS: Who Dares Wins after a series of high-profile gaffes.
A Channel 4 spokesman said the ex SAS sniper’s views and values are “not aligned” with the channel.
Bosses have said they will never work with him again.
A statement said: “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.”
Taking to social media, Ant insisted it was his own decision to walk away from the show, which he launched in 2015.
He said: “After five years on the show it just felt like I had achieved everything I could with the format.

“There’s so many other formats that I am working on now that feel more suited to who I am today.
“It’s been a brilliant experience being on that show but I’m honestly happy to let some new blood come in and put their own stamp on it.”
Ant also recently admitted he has found being a celebrity in the public eye tougher than being in the Special Forces.
