The 11-episode series sees a new generation of Gladiators pit themselves against the public – from an elite CrossFit athlete from Manchester to a James Bond actor and two Olympians.

Each episode sees the Gladiators take on contenders in new and old games, ending with the iconic challenge, The Eliminator.

And during Saturday’s semi-final, Finlay Anderson, Wesley Male, Bronte Jones and Marie-Louise Nicholson were revealed as the finalists. 

They will take to the arena one last time to see who has the will, the skill and the heart to be a winner and walk away Gladiators champion 2024.

Before they go head to head in the legendary Eliminator, they first will feel the power of the Gladiators.

Firefighter Bronte, 23, from Sheffield, is the youngest contender in the final and throughout the competition she has come up again Diamond, Fury and many more.

Ahead of the final, Bronte admitted it felt ‘crazy’ to be in the final and wasn’t expecting to get as far as she did.

She said: ‘I feel really proud of myself.’

Marie-Louise, from Dublin, has scored maximum points five times across the series and while she did struggle with some challenges, it was during The Eliminator where she reigned victorious and became a finalist.

They will join Finley, an army officer from Edinburgh and Wesley, an admin officer from Leeds. 

The grand final itself will air on Saturday 30 March 2024 at 5:50pm. 

The episode was filmed in front of a live studio audience at an arena in Sheffield last year – and fans watching along on TV won’t have too much longer to discover who the ultimate winners of the show are. 

Elsewhere during the semi-final, Gladiators’ fans were left fuming after spotting a major rule break during the Duel between Giant and Wesley.

The gladiator and the contestant battled it all out during the gruelling physical challenge – but viewers were quick to notice Giant used the pugil stick to balance himself and touched the opponent’s platform, which is not allowed.

Yet, Premier League Referee Mark Clattenberg ruled ‘no rules were broken’ as he claimed instead he ‘dropped’ the stick, causing the audience to boo.

And people at home were also furious about the referee’s choice – with some saying Wesley was ‘robbed’.

Annoyed viewers took to X as one pointed out: ‘Mark Clattenberg back to his Premier League Referee root’s lying openly that Giant ‘dropped his pugil stick’ so no rules broken. He had hold the entire time and used it to balance himself. Great cheating, Mark. #Gladiators.’

‘No rules broken! #Gladiators’; ‘Wesley’s been robbed there #gladiators’; ‘I see Mark Clattenburg still making shonky decisions. Giant clearly hadn’t dropped his stick. Like watching him ref a game at Old Trafford again. #gladiators’;

‘Giant didn’t break any rules when he rested his giant cotton bud on his opponents podium! What? Yet when Betty rested hers on her podium weeks ago she was disqualified ! #Gladiators #GladiatorsUK.’

‘Well I would say that the referee made the wrong decision there on #Gladiators, Giant touched Wesleys podium and contenders have been DQ’d for that in the past’; ‘There is no way Giant won that Duel… Awful decision! #gladiators’;

‘Giant did NOT drop his pugil stick!! That’s total bs #Gladiators’; ‘I can’t believe giant didn’t get disqualified! #Gladiators’; ‘How can he say Giant dropped his stick and picked it up? He clearly fell and used it to gain his balance!! Wesley was robbed in that! #Gladiators #Duel’;

The grand final itself will air on Saturday 30 March 2024 at 5:50pm

‘Giant became a tripod and used his pugil stick to stay upright.. just gonna think of Giant’s pugil stick for a minute #gladiators’; ‘Clattenburg bringing his *ahem* Premier League referee skills into #Gladiators. #giant’;

‘He didn’t drop his stick. He used it to balance himself!! #Giant #Gladiators’; ‘#Gladiators giant should have lost that event’; ‘That should have been a Contender Win!!! Giant put his hand on Wesley’s podium!!!! #Gladiators’; ‘Giant used his cotton bud to keep him up #Gladiators’.

The show is a reboot of the iconic sports show which ran between 1992 and 2000.

The programme returned last month with father and son duo Bradley and Barney Walsh hosting the show from Sheffield.

Gladiators – The Grand Final takes place on Saturday 30 March from 5.50pm on BBC One and iPlayer
