The star who became a household name after appearing as Grant Mitchell on BBC’s EastEnders has never shied away from danger.

Over the years, the 57-year-old has been praised for his work thanks to his investigative productions, taking on jobs that are not for the faint-hearted.

Ross Kemp on Gangs aired between 2004 and 2009 and saw him travel to cities such as Moscow to discover if gangs of Neo-Nazis were behind the rise of racist attacks and hate crimes.

The dad-of-four even joined a Neo-Nazi gang’s training session which included being set on fire.

Speaking on the Off Menu Podcast, Ross revealed that Little Psychopaths boss Chuco almost killed him.

“Chucho’s sister gave me this soft toy, I went and bought her one, but what I actually was doing was getting engaged to Chucho’s sister,” he explained.

He added: “When I explained to him I had a girlfriend, Chucho was ­unpleased.

“So Chucho got out this grilled chicken with a salad and I look at my piece and it’s pinker than my bald head.”

Ross continued: “So I put my fork into it and blood comes out.

“He’s waving at me with a very large pistol so I start eating the chicken.”

However, Ross found himself in further trouble several hours later — despite no longer being in the presence of Chucho.

After falling ill due to the uncooked chicken, Ross was swiftly given Pepto Bismol, an antacid that is used as a temporary measure to treat nausea, indigestion, heartburn, an upset stomach, and diarrhoea.

“I was like a Roman candle at both ends spraying pink!” he said.

Ross recently addressed the possibility of a return to Walford as gangster Grant, teasing “never say never”, before joking that like many, he has a mortgage to pay.
