Aj And Curtis Not Returning To Hollyoaks

Brothers AJ and Curtis Prichard have reportedly signed up to appear on the next series SAS: Who Dares Wins.

The siblings – who have been keen to work as a duo following their acting stint on soap Hollyoaks – are said to have already jetted to Jordan to start filming the series.

Former Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ, 26, and Love Island star Curtis, 25, will be the first family duo to compete in the tough competition.

AJ and Curtis reportedly “jumped at the chance” to appear on the series and want to “get properly stuck in” as they are “grafters”, an insider has shared.

“Most viewers might look at AJ and Curtis and think they’ve had it quite easy in their own respective worlds of reality telly and Strictly.

“But they’re grafters. AJ didn’t really have a chance to get that across when he did I’m A Celebrity last year.

“They both jumped at the chance to do SAS when the offer came up. They want to show they are more than just two good looking lads and can get properly stuck in,” a Channel 4 source told The Sun.

The Mirror has contacted reps for Channel 4 and reached out to AJ and Curtis’ team for comment.

When SAS: Who Dares Wins returns – Ant Middleton will not be on the Directing Staff team.

Channel 4 recently revealed hardman Ant’s replacement as Former United States Recon Marine, Rudy Reyes as the new Chief Instructor on the show.

Rudy – who is a highly decorated Special Forces operator with multiple military awards to his name – will be joining Foxy (Jason Fox) and Billy (Mark Billingham).

The real-life action man joined the United States Marine Corps and was ultimately selected for (and passed) Marine Recon training – an elite fighting force of only 300 troops.

He was a team leader for over 50 patrols behind enemy lines, being honoured as team leader of the year when he lead operations in Fallujah and Ramadhi, Iraq.

Curtis appeared on Love Island in 2019



Rudy was a member of the lead combat force that entered both Afghanistan and Iraq and his unit was depicted in the book and HBO mini-series Generation Kill , in which he played himself.

The athletic 50-year-old has a background in martial arts, left the military in 2005. He has since worked in both film and TV. Most notably, he starred as one of the interviewees in the 2020 documentary series Once Upon a Time in Iraq .

Another new addition to the DS team will be former US Navy SEAL Remi Adeleke.

Remi Adeleke, 39, is a former SEAL, who was born in West Africa and brought up in New York City. He joined the Navy in 2002 and later the elite Navy SEAL programme, serving for 13 years on active duty.

The new Directing Staff band of brothers will join forces to draw on their military experiences from both sides of the Atlantic, to create the toughest selection course yet.

Testing their mental and physical ability, in the unforgiving Middle Eastern heat in Jordan, the new cohort of civilian and celebrity recruits will discover whether they have what it takes to pass this unique SAS selection course.

In March, it was revealed that TV hardman Ant was being axed from SAS: Who Dares Wins.

The makers of TV show told that Ant’s personal conduct was the sole reason for him leaving the show.

In a statement released to the Mirror, a Channel 4 Spokesman said: “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 and is not related to his on-screen persona as a DS.

“SAS: Who Dares Wins will continue to be as tough as it’s ever been.”

It came after the Mirror told how female members of the crew raised concerns with makers Minnow Films and Channel 4 during an end of year review where they were allowed to speak anonymously and said Ant had made “inappropriate comments” towards them.

However, a spokesman for Middleton refuted the allegations, claiming that he is “always disciplined and utterly professional”.

Channel 4 said at the time, regarding complaints made against Middleton by the female crew on the show: “We can’t comment on anonymous allegations however we take issues of welfare very seriously. We clearly set out our expectations of behaviour in our Supplier Code of Conduct and any claims of behaviour that does not meet these standards would be looked into. We are satisfied that appropriate action has been taken.”

In June, Middleton apologised after he referred to Black Lives Matter protesters as “absolute scum” as he complained about the “extreme left” and “extreme right” taking to the streets.

*The seventh series of SAS: Who Dares Wins and the fourth series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins will air on Channel 4 in 2022.
