Hailed as one of TV’s most successful and hard-hitting documentary makers Ross has a string of successes to his name. Having had a brief meeting with a member of the infamous ‘Bloods’ gang in California, Ross went to Sky 1 with the idea for a new series.

It was called Gangs and he made 27 programmes in total.  He then made Ross Kemp in Afghanistan, where he spent time from 2007 to 2012 with army regiments.
