Gladiators: Jet

Diane Youdale executed Jet perfectly. Jet was every man’s favourite Gladiator and women looked up to her as a woman in control.

Jet entertained the Gladiators audience for 4 series, before bowing out due to a back injury.

Youdale sustained the injury whilst tackling a contender in an unaired episode. The Middlesbrough-born entertainer fell awkwardly off the Pyramid, which caused trapped nerves in her neck.

After Gladiators, Diane took a role in television as presenter, The Games Mistress on children’s series, Games World. Diane Youdale also trained as a psychotherapist and Pilates instructor.

Most recently, Youdale appeared on 2013’s Big Fat Quiz of the Year and as an analyst on Big Brother’s Bit on the Side.


Gladiators: Wolf
Gladiator: Wolf

Michael van Wijk is Wolf – still to this day!

During the Gladiators series, Wolf was a regular and performed in all eight series. Wolf was one of the legends who returned in 2008’s for Sky 1’s Gladiators reboot and also became a coach on the show.

Throughout his career as a Gladiator, Wolf courted much controversy for his antics. The first of many when he accidentally kicked a contender in the fact and then grabbed a referee in protest seeing him receive a red card.

At present, Wolf is 63 years of age and is still fit as a fiddle. The India-born Englishman now lives in New Zealand and can be regularly seen cage fighting men more than half his age – and winning!
