A GLADIATORS star has opened up about watching a footballer having his feet licked and told of the comedian who snuck under his T-shirt to snog his chest.
Cobra, aka body-builder Michael Willson, shot to fame on the challenge show in the nineties.
و, ahead of the long-awaited reboot on BBC, he’s spoken out about what went on behind the scenes.
Michael was 14 and a half stones of pure muscle when he was hired for Gladiators, which ran from 1992 ل 2000 on ITV.
A hit with audiences, the six-foot former kickboxer was regularly cheered to the rafters when he walked out into the arena — but his on-screen smiles masked troubles.
He was drawn into heavy drinking by his friend Jefferson King — aka Shadow — who would down six pints of Guinness before filming.
And when Michael turned on the Christmas lights in Manchester, the late comedian and actress Caroline Aherne snuck under his T-shirt to snog his broad chest.
Not all of his brushes with celebrities were so much fun.
