Gladiators

1 9 9 2 – 2 0 0 2 (UK)

Based on the original American Gladiators show, this British series pitted members of the public against superfit ‘Gladiators’ in trials of strength, speed and stamina.

Former TV-AM weather-girl Ulrika Johnson was with the show from the first episode and in many ways was the main anchor due to her TV background.

Despite having no hosting experience, footballer John Fashnu was given the role of male host of the show.

For seasons 6 and 7, John Fashnu was replaced by Rugby star Jeremy Guscott. Fashnu did return for the final mini-series in 1999.

Gladiators was filmed at the National Indoor Arena, Birmingham.

Jefferson King (Shadow) was fired from the show due to drug use.
