There are fans and then there are superfans and there is a whole world of difference as Paul tells us in his love story with Gladiators. He shares how he became friends with the stars of the show and even looked after Jet’s fan club.

A surprise birthday gift from his parents saw a very young Paul travel from Darlington to London to see his first show at the Wembley Arena and he tells GladPod how he never looked back.

Now he runs the incredibly popular Gladiators TV website which was launched in 1998 and is a partner with us for our podcast series - there’s not much about the original shows he doesn’t know - or have some merchandise from.
