Bradley and his son regularly visited Donna on set, with Barney even taking some of his first steps on the arena floor.

Speaking about joining the reboot, Bradley reflected on the times he used to watch the show backstage: “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!!!

The new series will be brought to viewers in 11 60-minute episodes made by Hungry Bear Media and MGM Television UK.

In a similar format to the old show, a new generation of superhuman Gladiators will compete against a brave set of ordinary contenders made up of members of the public.

Putting their speed and strength to the ultimate test, the contestants will face new games along with some of the classic challenges such as duel, hang tough and the eliminator.

Touching on fronting the reboot alongside his dad, Barney commented: “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.”

Although there is yet to be a release date for the new series, people have the chance to witness the reboot in person by being part of the audience for free on their site.

Originally created by Johnny C. Ferraro and Dan Carr, Gladiators ran for eight series from 1992 to 2000.

In the show, fans saw professional athletes competing under infamous names such as Jet, Scorpio and Wolf.
