INTERVIEW

What are your memories of the original series of Gladiators?
It reminds me of Saturdays because Gladiators was part of our day as a family. It was brilliant.

Who was your favourite Gladiator?
I didn't really have a favourite Gladiator; it was more about the events for me. I always looked forward to Powerball and I'm looking forward to giving that a go.

What qualities does a Gladiator need?
A strong character and athleticism. It isn't just about looking good, you have to be able to move well and, if you can't, that will show immediately.

What can the audience expect from Spartan?
Speed and explosiveness. And I guess they can look forward to a bit of showing off and banter with the Contenders too.

Do you have any words of warning for the Contenders?
They need to get practising their swimming because if they come up against me, they'll be spending a lot of time in the water.

Do you have any weakness the Contenders might be able to expliot?
No, don't be silly.

If you were an animal what would you be?
I used to be called a gazelle, but now I'm more like a lion - proud, with a big heart.
