Metin Hussein tells Di and Dave about sailing through the Glad tryouts, explains why he had monthly hair check-ins and describes his excitement after more than a year he got the call to tell him he was in, he would be called Shark and everything was shaping-up nicely.

But it was on a pre-series trip to Mauritius with the Gladiators squad that things started to go pear-shaped and his dreams of TV celebrity fame drifted away.

Metin tells Di and Dave how he got over the huge disappointment of missing out on the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of appearing on Gladiators - it involves helicopters and becoming a professional psychic medium!
