Sky One has ordered ten new episodes of Gladiators. The US comeback-version has enjoyed success and is hosted by Hulk Hogan & Laila Ali.
The original UK version, was shown on ITV and ran from 1992 to 2000.
The new run of hour-long episodes on Sky was commissioned by director of programming Richard Woolfe, who said:
"I am delighted to announce that the unmissable '90s TV show Gladiators is returning to British screens and it will be bigger and better than ever before. We've witnessed the revival of Take That and The Spice Girls; Sky One viewers can look forward to a televisual treat..."
Sky will air the new series starting in May, and is currently hunting for a team of 12 new gladiators. According to rumours Ian Wright could be the host.
