    Just watching his latest show, and…unless god forbid it’s staged….he has some hefty stones.

    I’m a cynical dude but I think I’ll choose to believe this one.

    But I’ll also post this just to balance it out

    I’d agree. Unless that is staged he looks as hard as nails.

    But then of course, he was on Eastenders. Admitting you’re that bad at acting in front of a global audience takes balls the size of melons!

    Not much he could have done about that. He’s a gentleman, so wouldn’t hit a lady.

    ….and obviously you can still be brave without knocking people out willy nilly.

    You only need to watch Ultimate Force to see how tough he is.

    I’m not sure what to make of Ross Kemp. On the one hand he does do some pretty ballsy stuff – on the other hand the standard of ‘journalism’ on some of his shows appears to be pretty ropey, and he really really loves asking people to show him their guns.

    @ Jamie: you can still stop them without hitting them. And then move away without staying. I know. I have a track record of rangas.

    If it’s real, shows some real stones for sure. The cameraman possibly even more so, though they seemed to largely ignore him for some reason.

    and he really really loves asking people to show him their guns.

    Although this might just be a cheap thrill for the camera, it could be that he has learnt/been taught how to engage with these people. Their gun could be their most important possession and they might relish the chance to show it off.

    I think he has grown out of that. Although, he does know a hell of a lot about guns. Probably from his close ties to his Dad’s old Army regiment, plus friendships with ex-army bods who have advised on some of his more gung-ho dramas.

    The bottom line is, his previous show was on the sex trade, including the trafficking of children, in India. And I really don’t see many other mainstream TV shows publicising the plight of these people, and putting themselves in danger in the process. Currently, the series is almost as worthy as CH4’s Unreported World.

    Crappy stat of the night, from last weeks program, a woman is raped every 21 minutes in India 😐

    Yup. Not exactly good news. Throw in female circumcision and my plan to be reincarnated as a woman seems ever less desirable.

    I was at uni as a mature student and doing doors to make ends meet.I was always in charge of looking after the PA’s at the big nightclub in Dundee;every pigging x factor/one hit wonder/minor soap star that took the money to appear at the manky bra,I had to get them from the “VIP” area to sing/sign etc. Most were fairly unpleasant,but he made up for every single Sinead Quinn or Adam Rickets. He was bright,entertaining and VERY generous with his bar tab. No airs or graces at all and I ended up in a lock in with him in his hotel. A genuinely nice guy,and as said,making docs on things other folk will not.

    He was quite good in extras
    Willing to take the piss out of himself

    Not seen any of his recent stuff is it on sky ?

    Sky 1 I think.

    Ross Kemps episode of extras was second only to Kate Winsletts, which was just utterly inspired (if you haven’t seen it – you really need too!). He properly took the piss out of himself, and his ‘hard man’ image. so fair play to him.

    Being bullied by Vinnie Jones…..

    I’m sure with modern plastic surgery techniques you might just have solved your own problem there.

    Back to the OP, I’m inclined to agree, can’t say I’ve ever been massively impressed by his acting skills, but in the documentries I’ve seen (Gangs, Ultimate Force, etc.), he comes across as pretty genuine to be honest, with some fair cahoonies. Yes there’s the usual stuff to get people interested enough to watch it, but they’re good to watch and not much similar out there.

    Watching the PapuaNewGuinea episode now, strong stuff and he fronts it well.

    It seems to me from that first clip that he has learnt over the years that these people only respect people who stand up for themselves. It sounds easy, but it’s easier said than done, especially when there’s a gun in your face.

    Hmmm… I’m not sure about that clip in the OP TBH. I’ve seen other bits of his shows that looked a bit suspect and something about that doesn’t quite ring true either.

    OTOH he did turn up at shack where folk were drinking dodgy moonshine and one guy got his arm slashed with a machete in a brawl.

    I think in the opening clip he knew it was a test and not a genuine robbery. Either way, he still had two bandits pointing shotguns at him.

    Uneasy viewing – PNG is very messed up.

    I like it when he is going to a secret meeting with some dangerous gang.
    He has no idea where it will be .. or even when.

    But the cameraman is already there to film him pulling up to it ..

    Pfft, next you’ll be telling me an old man doesn’t sneak into my room once a year and empty his sack everywhere.

    He was on Radio 2 with Chris Evans the other week talking about it. Seemed very genuine when talking about it and other scary moments he’s encountered in Afghan etc.

    There is a follow up interview on the Sky website with him sky.com/ross.

    Seems pretty genuine and I’ve met him a couple of times, nice guy.

    But the cameraman is already there to film him pulling up to it ..

    drive
    deposit cameraman
    reverse 20m
    start filming

    wasn’t that tricky?

    This week he was in NI:

    Glass bottles? Pffft!

    Could have been a plastic bottle or water balloon filled with wee. At least he has a helmet on.

    I’m thinking that wasn’t this week. The only time you see that many union flags is during the we run the show marching season or during legitimate protests about flag flying. It’s been far too cold and wet recently for Orangemen to be out whinging about oppression.

    It was indeed DD. I guess the shows were filmed over the last year.

    Is that show on catch up? Which channel?

    Cheers. Downloaded to box at home from phone in W2. (This is what tech is there for.)
