Ant Middleton has compared himself to Piers Morgan as he promised he will not change who he is.
The outspoken former soldier was axed from Channel 4's SAS: Who Dares Wins earlier this month over his “personal conduct”.
The 40-year-old now says that he has been inundated with job offers and vows to only work with those who try not to change him.
Speaking on The Diary of A CEO podcast he said: “This last week so many doors have opened, production companies and channels calling me.
“You get cancelled then that’s your career done but you’ve got Piers Morgans, Jeremy Clarksons and now you’ve got your Ant Middletons.
"I’m not going to be comfortable with everyone, and I’m not going to be their cup of tea.
“Well that’s fine because guess what, I don’t want to work with you."
Ant added: “If I get questioned one little bit about who I am by any brands, any sponsors, any channels, then I will not work with them. I will say listen, thank you very much. It’s obviously not the right match.”

“People have to realise that this is a work in progress it is not something I can change overnight. You need to understand that’s who I am.”
Piers was one of Ant’s biggest supporters after his axing by Channel 4, tweeting a picture of the two of them play wrestling and writing: “Absurd that Channel 4 fired @antmiddleton for his opinions.
I’m not going to be comfortable with everyone, and I’m not going to be their cup of tea.
“Such a spineless surrender to the PC Police. Ant’s a top bloke – when he’s not strangling me.”
Piers sensationally quit Good Morning Britain earlier this month after refusing to apologise for his comments on Meghan Markle.
The host rowed on-air with co-presenter Alex Beresford about his opinions on the Duchess of Sussex leading to Piers storming off set live on TV.

Meanwhile, Ant claimed he left the Channel 4 show before he was given the chop, telling The Sun: "I have decided to walk away from it, it is clear Channel 4 and I have fallen out over it and that is regretful.
“I have butted heads with some of the team but ultimately it is out of a passion for what I wanted to do and that’s make the best show possible.”
However, Channel 4 had insisted that they fired Ant only due to his actions “off-camera”, stating: “Our decision not to renew Ant Middleton’s contract and not to work with him again was solely based on his personal conduct off camera.”
