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.
