Gladiators is back on our screens tonight as hopeful contestants from across the UK go head-to-head with the professionals.

Like most of Saturday night television, Gladiators has seen changes to its scheduling because of the Six Nations.

The Six Nations tournament kicked off last week when the previous winners Ireland battled it out with France on February 2.

When is Gladiators on tonight amid Six Nations shakeup?

According to the Radio Times, Gladiators will air on BBC One at 5:50pm and finish an hour later at 6:50pm when Michael McIntyre's Big Show begins.

Gladiators returned to British TV screens on January 13 with a new batch of Gladiators and many familiar challenges.

Father and son duo Bradley and Barney Walsh have fronted the new series as The Chase star adds more presenting gigs to his already illustrious career.

Other programmes like ITV's The Masked Singer and Limitless Win have been affected by the Six Nations and will air at 7:15pm and 8:45pm respectively.
