Gladiators ‘set for reboot on the BBC’

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Gladiators’ looks set to be rebooted, more than 30 years after it began.
The popular sports game show – which saw members of the public go up as Contenders against the resident Gladiators – first hit screens on ITV in 1992 and ran for eight seasons before its 2000 end.
Each episode – which was presented by the likes of Ulrika Jonsson, John Fashanu and Jeremy Guscott over the years – saw four people go up against the mighty Gladiators, who had past lives as professional bodybuilders and gymnasts.
The news of the revamp was first shared by Broadcast, who reports that the show looks set to air on the BBC and be brought to life by MGM Studios and Hungry Bear, the production company founded by ‘This Morning’ presenter Holly Willoughby’s husband Dan Baldwin.
According to the television trade publication, ‘Gladiators’ is expected to commence filming at Sheffield Arena next year, implying there may be a live audience component added to the programme.
In 2008, the show was resurrected for two seasons on Sky One, including three episodes that saw the new generation of Gladiators go up against some of the original lineup. International editions have also sprung up in countries such as Australia, the United States, Finland and South Africa.
It’s not clear who will present the new edition, but Ulrika was recently back on screens during her stint on dating show ‘Celebs Go Dating’.
She said at the time: “But when dating It’s a weird thing when they know more about you then you know about yourself and they’re telling you about yourself.
“There is an imbalance there and you basically want to find somebody who’s not phased by who you are, who just treats you like a normal person so you’re on an even playing field.”
