Ant is best known as the chief instructor on hit Channel 4 show SAS: Who Dares Wins which puts British men through their paces to see if they could pass the SAS selection test.

The ex-special forces hero is set to kick off his 2019 Mind Over Muscle Tour at the Ipswich Regent on Monday, April 1 and will take the audience on a ‘motivational journey of self-help and discovery’.

He will also give behind-the-scenes insight into his recent SAS series and Everest challenge which will be shown on Channel 4 in an hour-long documentary on Sunday, November 11.

Ant said: “I am so excited to take my brand new show on the road in 2019.

“I want to bring my recent journeys to life and show how mental strength can help overcome huge challenges.

His other shows have included ‘Mutiny’, which recreated Captain William Bligh’s journey after the infamous ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’, and leading a team of engineers building a vehicle in extreme environments on ‘Escape’.
