Hard man Vinnie Jones undertook training as a bodyguard during filming of his upcoming National Geographic series Vinnie Jones: Russia’s Toughest, and the experience clearly made an impression on him.

“I passed the first level, and it was awesome,” says Vinnie, who is now planning a new TV series, which he will star in, based around the bodyguard business.

“It’s about a security company in LA looking after the rich, famous and pampered,” reveals the 48-year-old footballer-turned Hollywood star. “It’s funny, a bit like Entourage, and it’s called Security.”
