TELLY fans reckon Anthony ‘Staz’ Stazicker is being lined up to replace Ant Middleton as the chief Directing Staff member (DS) on SAS: Who Dares Wins.
Here’s everything you need to know about the military man.
Who is Anthony ‘Staz’ Stazicker?
Anthony, 37, is a DS on SAS: Who Dares Wins.
He joined the military aged 20, becoming a sniper with the Royal Marines before joining the Special Boat Service in 2008 and serving for a decade.
Anthony is engaged to Ruby McClafferty and lost his mother unexpectedly at a young age.
Speaking previously about his late mother, he said: “I’d say my life’s biggest slap in the face was when my mum suddenly passed away. I was about 11, it was totally unexpected, it was a brain haemorrhage.
“I remember spending a few days in hospital, not really understanding what was going on.
“She was on life support and then a few days in, a decision was made to turn the life support off. I think it was a deciding factor for me.
“It made me quite resentful, quite angry, but I think it also gave me a purpose, a fire, something to prove and do somebody proud.”
When will he join SAS: Who Dares Wins?
Anthony started off as a ‘mole’ in the current series of the Channel 4 show, trying to catch out the trainees.
He emerged as a DS in last Sunday’s episode and some fans are now speculating if he’s being lined up to replace Ant Middleton as the chief DS.
Ant, 40, left SAS: Who Dares Wins (UK) earlier this year following controversial comments about the Covid-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
He told The Sun in March: “I think that ultimately what has happened is that the people that make the show and I have very different opinions on where the show started and where it is going in the future.
“When I started making the show and as I was involved from the beginning, it was very simple and at its core it was to show what Special Forces’ selection was.
“And I am sad to say that in recent years the producers of the show have drifted from this and it has become more of a reality show than I feel comfortable with.”
