- Ross Kemp is a badass.
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.Posted 4 years ago
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.
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.

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.Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
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.

I’d give my right testicle for my head to look like a testicle
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.Posted 4 years ago
An I alone in thinking Ultimate Force was great?
honeybadgerx also likes it.

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.Posted 4 years agodooosukMember
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.
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.Posted 4 years ago

we run the showmarching 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.
