Kirsty Gallacher and Ian Wright have signed up to present the revived Gladiators.

Sky One is bringing back the popular show, which was a hit for ITV during the 1990s, in May.

Original referee John Anderson is also returning to the show, in which contestants compete for a £50,000 prize.

Filmed at Shepperton studios, Gladiators is expected to be broadcast in its traditional Saturday primetime slot following a 21st Century makeover.

Ex-footballer Ian, 44, said: “Gladiators is a great show and I am thrilled to be involved.

“Since people first heard it was coming back the response has been phenomenal and I am so excited that a new generation get to experience it.”

Kirsty, 32, added: “I grew up with Gladiators so I couldn’t be more excited to be involved in the new series.

“It promises to be great entertainment on a major scale and I can’t wait to get started.”
