In 2003 Dwain failed a drug test and it was found that he had taken performance enhancing drugs which were illegal in the sport. Dwain was banned from athletics and attempted a career in American Football and appeared on the TV series Hell’s Kitchen which he soon quit after he was banned.
The star was able to return to athletics, however, he had lost himself and his fellow relay team-mates medals after he tested positive for the drugs.

Why can’t Ant Middleton do SAS
Ant was fired from the show due to ‘personal conduct’ – Ant had hosted SAS since 2015 but following his comments made in 2020, he was axed from the Channel 4 show. The former SAS chief instructor came under fire for his comments about the Black Lives Matter movement against police brutality.
Ant branded both groups at the protests as “scum” in a now deleted tweet. He said: “The extreme left against the extreme right. When did two wrongs make a right? It was only a matter of time. BLM and EDL are not welcome on our streets, absolute scum. What a great example you are to your future generation.
Bravo.” After facing intense backlash, he apologised and insisted he was not racist. He explained his use of the word “scum” was used to describe those who were “violent” and “causing terror on the streets of London and setting a bad example for our future generations.” Soon after Channel 4 confirmed he would not be returning to future series of SAS: Who Dares Wins, following “a number of discussions” with Ant “in relation to his personal conduct”, Channel 4 felt its views and values did not align with Ant’s and as such made the decision to not work with him again.
What does Ant think of new SAS?
Ant Middleton has hit out at SAS: Who Dares Wins amid claims the series had become “too woke” – and is even “soft”.

- He said he knew stars who turned it down because it had “become too woke”.
- He told The Sun: “SAS is a lot softer now.
- I don’t watch it.
- A lot of celebrities ring me and tell me they’ve been asked to do the show but won’t, partly out of loyalty to me and partly because they say, ‘What would I get out of it? It’s gone soft’.

- A source said: “The show can’t be faulted for showing diversity within its recruits but the DSs are all white men of similar age.
- “It’s likely this will be rectified in the new series.”
