Arnold Schwarzenegger to front UK stunt show

Hollywood action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to host a UK TV show dedicated to the world's most daring stunts.

The former bodybuilder, 68, who does most of his own film stunts, will take his first step into TV presenting with "Arnie's 50 Greatest Ever Stunts", a two-hour special examining what it takes to pull off certain tricks, reported Contactmusic.

Schwarzenegger will show viewers how some of his favourite stunts were achieved, including Jean-Claude Van Damme's splits between two moving trucks and Felix Baumgartner's free fall to Earth from the stratosphere.

A spokeswoman for the Channel 4 network said, "In addition to commentary from fans, comedians, stunt coordinators and daredevils, this celebration of skill and courage will take a behind-the-scenes look at how these jaw-dropping stunts came together with Arnie offering insight into what it takes to be a real life action hero."

The special airs in the spring.

Schwarzenegger is also moving into TV in the US by replacing business tycoon and Presidential hopeful Donald Trump on the upcoming series of "Celebrity Apprentice".
