Ant Middleton's name has been removed from the Prince's Trust website after Channel 4 axe

ANT Middleton's name has been taken off The Prince's Trust website just days after Channel 4 dropped him.

Last week, The Sun revealed Ant had been dropped by Channel 4 and also from his prestigious role as celebrity ambassador for The Prince's Trust.

Founded by Prince Charles, the charity removed Ant's name from the list of celebrities who have worked closely with.

The Prince’s Trust confirmed in a statement to the Mirror: “A decision was taken some time ago to no longer work with Ant Middleton."

The last time Ant worked with the charity was in December 2019 at the opening of the new Prince’s Trust South London.

Ant how to use a climbing wall at the centre and later met Prince Charles.

 A spokesperson for Ant confirmed to The Sun that he has not worked with the charity since 2019.

"Ant has not been able to work with The Princes Trust since 2019 due to other work commitments," they said.

"He remains inspired by the charity and continues to have a lot of respect and admiration for the work it carries out."

Ant has been embroiled in controversy since last when he was axed by Channel 4 last week in a shock statement with the broadcaster saying it would never work with the ex soldier again.

Then he was accused of making "lewd comments" to four female staff.

The Sun revealed the ex soldier allegedly told a female contestant he was going to have sex with her.

It is claimed that the father of five said: “I’m going to f**k you after this.”

His comment was said to have been picked up by the show’s microphones.

A production source told The Sun: “When filming a show like SAS: Who Dares Wins, nothing goes unnoticed by the microphones and ­cameras.

“Comments by Ant — whether made in jest or not — were picked up by production and someone complained.

“In total up to four women submitted concerns to production bosses.

“On the celebrity version of the show he made comments to two female celebrities, both of whom were not single.

“Everyone on the show was talking about it among themselves. Staff at Minnow Films, who make the show, say they’ve still got the audio of one alleged incident.”

It was one of the allegations made by four women to TV and media union Bectu, who were said to be angered by his claims on Good Morning Britain that the language he used on set was "military banter".

Last night a spokesman for Middleton said he “wholeheartedly and emphatically rejects” the allegations.

They added: “Ant has worked on TV sets around the world for many years and has never at any point been accused of speaking inappropriately by anyone.

“He has only ever been informed of these allegations, which he wholeheartedly and emphatically rejects, via the media.

“If anyone felt that he did say anything verbally offensive we would have expected a formal process of review but no such discussion has ever taken place either via any of the networks he works for or via bodies such as Bectu.”
