Such popular appearances make him a fan-favourite, and a sought after addition to events of all shapes and sizes. Jason's insight into the hit show supplies audiences with a coveted backstage pass.
Mark 'Billy' Billingham
Mark 'Billy' Billingham held several roles in the SAS over the course of his career, including Patrol Commander and Mountain Troop Specialist. He led hostage rescues at the highest level in war zones like Afghanistan and Iraq. Such experiences make Billy an influential public speaker, as his captivating stories leave audiences empowered to overcome adversity, as he has done.
Since leaving military life behind, Billy has worked as a bodyguard, protecting celebrities including Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss and Russell Crowe. At events, audiences enjoy hearing his star-studded stories, ensuring the success of your virtual or in-person occasion. Billy has returned for series six of SAS: Who Dares Wins, as his expertise is vital to the Directing Staff team.
Aside from being the hard-nosed Chief Instructor on SAS: Who Dares Wins, Ant Middleton has experienced an eventful career, both in the special forces and the world of exploration. After serving in the British army, Ant joined the royal marines where he won the King's Badge before enlisting in the Special Boat Service.
Since leaving the military and entering life on the TV screen, Ant has co-authored 'SAS: Who Dares Wins: Leadership Secrets from the Special Forces' with his fellow presenters and his autobiography 'First Man In: Leading from the Front', which became a Sunday Times bestseller in 2018.
When audiences called for the show to become more diverse, former soldier Melvyn Downes stepped up to increase representation and set a new standard for British television. The first non-White presenter on the show, he has led operational tours in Iraq and Nothern Ireland, reflecting his vast experience and knowledge of the Special Air Service recruitment process.
Melvyn intends to "represent the under-represented in life", as the voice of both the British working class and mixed-race people. His appointment as Directing Staff will likely attract new, more diverse audiences to the show, who can now see themselves reflected in both the senior figures and contestants.
