Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? Do you have the will... and the skill? The staple of Saturday night television has made a massive comeback for 2024, with a crop of quarter finalist contenders hoping that they have the the speed, the strength and heart to be a winner. Traveling outside the U.K.? You can watch "Gladiators" for FREE online and from anywhere with a VPN.
For anybody not old enough to remember the hugely popular original series from the 90s, "Gladiators" is a big, brash — and not a little camp — gameshow in which members of the public try to defeat each other and the mighty Gladiators in a series of challenges to test their skill, dexterity and power.
There are 16 new Gladiators standing in the way of the the contenders' glory; from Olympic athletes like Fire (Montell Douglas) and Phantom (Toby Olubi), to intimidating body builders such as Diamond (Livi Sheldon) and Legend (Matt Morsia). Even Mark Clattenburg, the main referee, has athletic clout, having refereed in F.A. Cup and Champions League soccer matches.
We're now on to the quarter finals meaning things only get tougher for our contenders from here on out, with everyone now knowing what to expect from the events, from classics Hang Tough, The Wall, Powerball and Duel to new games; Collision, The Edge and The Ring.
Bradley Walsh is on hosting duties with his son Barney (sorry if you were hoping for Fash and Ulrika!) as we build toward the final episode scheduled to take place from the Utilita Arena in Sheffield, U.K. on Saturday, Mar. 23 where a male and female champion will be crowned.
