GLADIATORS fans were left speechless today as the stars of the hit 90s show appeared on This Morning – looking as good as ever.
Celebrating 25 years from when the show first aired Jet, Hunter Panther, Ace and John Anderson joined a very excited Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield today – and viewers couldn’t get over what great shape they are still in.
But it was Hunter, real name James Crossley, who stole the show thanks to his bulging biceps, which even Phillip couldn’t resist pointing out.
Hunter was just 19 when he was recruited to appear on the show – making him the youngest ever Gladiator.
Speaking about his time on the show, he said: “I started when I was 19. I was plucked from a body building stage. I had to fight John Anderson in my trial!”
And explaining why he is in such great shape still, he said: “I work in fitness and try and train people against sedentary living.”
Taking to Twitter to comment on his look, one person wrote: “Wow I fancy Hunter more now than I did back then! 😍 #ThisMorning #Gladiators.”
While a second remarked: “Hunter was my #Gladiators crush. Still looking buff tbf 👌🏻 👀#ThisMorning.”
And a third wrote: “Hunter!!!!!!!!!!!!! he’s still got it!!”
Jet – real name Diane Youdale – also opened up about her experience saying: “Injuries aside it was amazing.
“A lot of the guys bounced book, I bruised my spinal cord quite badly and left after 4 and half years.”
Diane now works as a psychotherapist and specialises in ‘wellness in the work place’.
Panther (Helen O’Reily), who now runs her own gym, said: “It was great to inspire so many people to be able to be strong and feminine at the same time.”
Ace – real name Warren Furman – surprised the Holly and Phil the most though when he revealed he was now a ‘gladiator for the gospel’.
The star, who was once engaged to Katie Price, revealed: “Back then I did worship myself. Now I am sort of gladiator for the gospel.
He continued: “I had a turd into the swimming pool moment, I was too busy looking down at people to look up.”
Those at home were very impressed with all the stars and took to Twitter to gush about the iconic show.
One person wrote: “I actually cannot cope with how much of a babe Jet from Gladiators still is. 😍 #ThisMorning.”
While a second wrote: “How amazing is it to see the Gladiators 25 years on! Great childhood memories #ThisMorning #Gladiators.”
