Ross Kemp

Since his iconic role as Grant Mitchell in Eastenders 20 years ago, Ross Kemp's career has taken many unexpected turns. He explains how a chance opportunity to meet an American gang leader sparked a whole new career as a documentary journalist – visiting some of the world’s most dangerous places from war-zones, to drug factories, pirate waters and high security prisons. Speaking with Tom and Fran, he explains why he feels compelled to tell the stories of people living on the darkest edges of society – and the perspective it’s given to his own life (“...a Porsche and swimming pool at home are meaningless when rounds are zipping past your head”). Plus he shares news of his latest adventure, Ross Kemp: Shipwreck Treasure Hunter, coming soon to NOW.
