According to reports, a member of the Gladiators crowd gave birth during one of the live events.
The renowned show is returning after more than two decades away, with father-son combo Bradley and Barney Walsh as hosts.
A new generation of superhuman Gladiators will follow in the footsteps of Jet, Hunter, and Wolf, but there appears to have been more drama off stage than on.
Ahead of the revival’s premiere, with Fury, Steel, Comet, and Sabre making their debut in the new lineup, the presenting duo disclosed that one audience member’s waters broke as the event was being shot.
‘One lady in the audience, her waters broke during filming. She gave birth there,’ Barney revealed.
‘So we had a Gladiators baby!’
The Chase star Bradley added, according to OK!: ‘That’s absolutely true, that actually did happen!’
The remake of the 1990s show, which will pit daring candidates against the Gladiators in speed and strength tests, premieres this weekend, although it was recorded in Sheffield last year, with spectators queuing for hours to witness the live event.
Bradley, 62, and Barney, 26, are the current hosts of the show, after Ulrika Jonsson who presented the original series. They have a personal connection to the show.
Donna Walsh, Barney’s mother and Bradley’s wife, was the Gladiator cheerleading’ main choreographer in the original season.
Bradley and a very young Barney were regular visitors on set, with Barney taking some of his first steps on the iconic arena floor.
Not to be outdone, Bradley followed in his small son’s footsteps when he took part in a celebrities vs jockeys special, in 1997.
Bradley had previously said: ‘Wow! I can’t believe that I’ve been asked to be part of this iconic show.
‘I used to sit backstage, or in the audience, every week watching my wife be part of this juggernaut and now I get to co-host a new version of GLADIATORS!!!
‘Saturday night family entertainment at its best…ARE YOU READY ?!’
Gladiators first hit our television screens in 1992 and was broadcast on ITV, lasting for eight seasons until 2000.
Gladiators begins on Saturday, January 13, at 5.50pm on BBC One.
