‘I’m so glad to have been by her side’: Ant Middleton reveals his mother died of cancer at the age of 62 just weeks after the diagnosis was made
Ant Middleton has revealed that his mother died of cancer two days ago at the age of 62.
The SAS: Who Dares Wins star, 39, broke the heartbreaking news on an Instagram live with Mark Wright, where he shared that his beloved mom had only been diagnosed with cancer just a few weeks ago.
He said, “My mom died of cancer two days ago and I was supposed to be filming away in New Zealand. I wouldn’t be back until April 6 and because of this situation and my mother’s negativity with cancer I had to come back and it allowed me to stand next to my mom as she breathed her last.

“So the magnitude of all this negativity, I got some positive things out of it.”
He continued, “I’m so glad I was able to be next to my mom when she took her last breath.
“So when I talk about taking the positives from negatives, you have to dig deep to find them, but they are there, the positives are there.”
Ant shares children Prisies, three, Oakley, 17, Shyla, 11, Gabriel, 10, and Bligh, two with wife Emma.

Ant will then appear on screen in the new series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
Katie Price, Anthea Turner and Joey Essex are among the participating stars.
They are put to the test by Chief Instructor Ant and his team of Directing Staff (DS), Foxy, Billy, Ollie and newcomer Jay.
Along with the trio, ex-Peter Peter presenter Helen Skelton, dancer Brendan Cole, YouTuber and Hollyoaks actress Nikki Sanderson head to the west coast of Scotland to see if they have what it takes to pass the SAS roster.
Also facing the grueling course are former footballer John Fashanu, paralympian Lauren Steadman, Rudimental DJ Locksmith, Radio 1Xtra’s Yasmin Evans and former champion boxer Tony Bellew.
Plus, Jack Maynard – who got kicked off in the 2017 series of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! because of historical offensive tweets will also compete.
Celebrity recruits will live together in a derelict farm on the remote island of Raasay while tackling a series of relentless challenges, and Ant warned that the group is capable of the “ absolute shock of their lives. ”
He said, “If these celebrities show up with an ego, they won’t last 24 hours. There are no shortcuts, there are no easy options.
“They think they know what’s going to happen, but trust me, they’re going to have the absolute shock of their lives.”
