Speaking about Ant’s appointment, Lieutenant-General Sir Andrew Gregory, chief executive SSAFA said:

He can personally identify with the circumstances facing young servicemen and women and veterans; as a result, he is a role model and inspiration to them. We are delighted he has chosen to support the work of SSAFA.”
Explaining why he accepted the role, Ant explained:
“I’m really excited about becoming a SSAFA Ambassador. I know from personal experience, the difficulties that befall many of our serving and ex-serving men and women and I’ll do all I can to raise awareness of their issues and help those I’ve stood shoulder-to shoulder with.”
