This Morning hosted a Gladiators reunion to mark the show's 25th anniversary.

Jet (Diane Youdale), Hunter (James Crossley), Panther (Helen O'Reilly), Ace (Warren Furman) and referee John Anderson reflected on the success of the hit '90s show to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

"Injuries aside, it was amazing," enthused Jet. "A lot of the guys bounced back. I bruised my spinal cord quite badly and left after four and a half years."

Everyone watching at home was happy to see some of the old gang back, especially since it's the closest we'll probably get to a revival.

Panther now runs her own gym, called Panthers Gym of course, and explained how it was "great to inspire so many people to be able to be strong and feminine at the same time".

Once engaged to Katie Price, Ace spoke about how he worshipped himself during the Gladiators days, but has since turned to God.

"I had a real turd in the swimming pool moment. I used to think I was really blessed because I had all this money, girls, everything. I was too busy looking down at people to ever look up," he candidly explained.

"It was really interesting for me because God will forgive the sin. He'll take the turd out of the pool and you're in a relationship with him."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
