RATINGS: GLADIATORS RETURNS TO SCREENS WITH INCREDIBLE 6m VIEWERS
One of the most iconic sports entertainment gameshows ever, Gladiators, returned to screens this weekend with an incredible 6 million viewers tuning in from 5:50pm on BBC One.
Hosted by father and son duo Bradley and Barney Walsh, the show will see a new generation of superhuman Gladiators competing against a brave set of contenders in the ultimate test of speed and strength.
They will take part in a series of brand-new games alongside classic challenges including fan-favourite The Eliminator.
Bradley Walsh says: “Wow! I can’t believe that I’ve been asked to be part of this iconic show. I used to sit backstage, or in the audience, every week watching my wife be part of this juggernaut and now I get to co-host a new version of GLADIATORS!!! Saturday night family entertainment at its best...ARE YOU READY ?!"
Barney Walsh says: “Gladiators has been a massive part of our family and it’s an honour to be asked to co-host this iconic show. I’m so excited for everyone to see the spectacle, elite athletes and fantastic family entertainment that is GLADIATORS.”
Gladiators continues Saturdays on BBC One and iPlayer.
