Gladiators legend Jet is getting married to a woman she met at supermarket
| Last updated
Gladiators' Diane Youdale has revealed she's engaged to be married.
The 53-year-old appeared on the iconic ITV game show in the 90s under the name of Jet.
She has since opened up about getting engaged to her girlfriend Zoe.
Youdale appeared on the Chillin with Ice podcast hosted by Lori Fetrick - a.k.a. Ice from the American version of Gladiators.
Going over Youdale's achievements in life, she has not only been a UK gladiator, gymnast and now therapist, but she's also set to get married after meeting someone in the supermarket.
However, it's not been an easy path to happiness.
When asked if she's living the life she wants, Youdale admitted: "I am. It's taken a long time to get there I won't lie.
"I could cry but I wont. I sadly left the south of England and moved to the north west. [...] for something that wasn't what it seemed and ended up really hurt, badly.
"Lots of police, my mental health suffered because of domestic abuse. [...] It was horrendous and really put me off relationships for life."
"It taught me a lot abut trusting people and then not trusting people so I went off on my own for a long, long time and did a lot of repair and recovery."
However, 13 years later and Youdale has since found Mrs Right.
"Just over a year ago, a gorgeous lady approached me in my local supermarket and asked if I was single," she said. "And over a year later, we're going to get married."
Youdale resolves: "We are what we are and it doesn't matter. I don't give a damn.
"I'm safe and I'm loved and there's no threat to me anymore and that's what means the world to me."
If seeing Youdale has made all nostalgic and missing the competition then fear not, because the BBC is rebooting it for release in 2023.
Youdale even gave some tips for the newbies set to take part in the upcoming show.
She told Express.co.uk: "My advice to the new 'Glads' would be either to be a very good all-rounder, with a good average score, or excel at one or two of them.
"Make them your signature events, so by the time they move to the quarters and the semi-finals, the producers will want to put them on those events because they're going to be the best match, the best competition for the contender that's got all the way through."
