A revealed SAS: Who Dares Wins’ Ant Middleton bought her a new iPhone 11 after he knocked her mobile out of her hand while they were taking a selfie.
Alice Dickson, a make-up artist from Edinburgh, was out for dinner when she spotted Ant Middleton, 39, and approached him to ask for a picture.
However after taking the picture together Ant accidentally knocked the phone from her hand causing it to smash on the floor.
But soon after the make-up artist said she received an email notifying her that the ex-soldier had purchased her a brand new iPhone 11 with 256GB of storage, which costs up to £880 when bought outright.
The Channel 4 star also bought Alice a case to keep it from smashing again.
Alice shared the story in a Twitter post that has since gone viral, garnering over 120,000 ‘like’s and almost 5,000 retweets.
Calling Middleton a ‘mentally, mentally lovely guy’, she wrote: ‘Met Ant Middleton the other night so I went and asked for a photo.
‘He accidentally knocked my hand which smashed my phone (my fault didn’t have a case).
‘He asked for my email address and has just BOUGHT a brand new iPhone 11 w 256GB. What a mentally mentally lovely guy.’
She added that he had also bought her a phone case and said he was ‘so so lovely! Very nice guy’.
Ant joined the British Army aged 17 in 1997 and served in the Royal Marines from 2005 until 2012 before becoming a media personality following SAS: Who Dares Wins.
Other Twitter users were quick to comment with one tagging her friend and asking: ‘Why do we never fall lucky like this?’
‘Cue everyone that meets him loosely holding their phones as they greet him,’ another added.
‘Ant!’ another wrote, ‘No way, always thought he was a belter on SAS. Was he nice?’
Another added: ‘Don’t because this reminds me of my fella who knocked mine out my hands in Tenerife.’
One person wrote, ‘What a guy,’ while another tweeted: ‘I love him even more now.’
Meanwhile another cheeky user replied: ‘He can smash my phone any day.’
