Arnold Schwarzenegger to present his own UK show

Los Angeles - Arnold Schwarzenegger has landed his first UK presenting gig.

The Hollywood legend is set to front Arnie's 50 Greatest Ever Stunts, a new two-hour special set to air in the spring, as he slips into his tight blue jeans and black leather jacket to describe various feats it takes to become a daredevil as he goes behind-the-scenes of some of the world's most mind-blowing and life-threatening stunts. 

A spokeswoman explained "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."

Meanwhile, even though the show, which will show martial arts star Jean-Claude Van Damme's car commercial where he did the splits between two lorries, will air on UK television screens, Arnold, 68, actually shot the programme in Los Angeles.

And it seems the former professional bodybuilder got the nibbles while he was on set as he reportedly kept running off to pinch snacks from Will Smith's nearby studio.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "While Arnie was shooting he kept disappearing and coming back with biscuits and chocolate cake. It turned out he was raiding Will Smith's catering area. When Will found out he was thrilled to see who it was!"
