BBC unveils cast of rebooted Gladiators series

Nearly a year after the BBC first announced it was rebooting the iconic sports competition Gladiators, we can now introduce you to the hulking behemoths stepping into the Eliminator.

The Chase's Bradley Walsh and his son Barney will be presenting all the action, but let's meet the gladiators whose sole goal will be crushing the contestants...

Viper

"A man of few words but beware, Viper vows to smash any contender that stands in his way."
