Fans are swooning over ‘fit’ Bradley Walsh in resurfaced Gladiators clips


A resurfaced clip of Bradley Walsh has sent the internet into a frenzy

The Chase presenter is known for being a staple of our TV screens, but back in 1997, viewers got to see him in a whole different light.

Walsh appeared on a special Celebrities vs Jockeys episode of the original Gladiators series, way before he started to present the reboot alongside his son Barney.

Bringing back the show has proven to be a massive hit, with it having been one of the BBC’s most successful family shows to launch in recent years.

However, a clip from the original series, which began airing in 1992 and finished in 2000, has everyone saying the same thing about new host Walsh.

The now 63-year-old can be seen entering the Sumo Ball arena dressed in a baggy T-shirt, before stripping off to reveal a pink bikini underneath.

“I, ladies and gentlemen, am the new girl Gladiator, Crumpet,” he told the audience.

The then 37-year-old Walsh takes a moment to flex his muscles before squaring up to Wolf, real name Michael Van Wijk.

The clip, which was recently uploaded to YouTube, has garnered a lot of attention, with some swooning over Walsh’s appearance.

“Can we all agree he looks really fit in that outfit,” one person wrote in the comments section.

Another penned: “Great body there Brad!”

A third put: “Brad really suits the colour pink.”
