Presenter Jason Fox is quickly becoming a fan favourite in the U.K.
He was thrust into the world of drug smuggling during three-part series Meet the Drug Lord: The Real Narcos in 2018 and is now back on Channel 4 as one of the chief instructors in SAS: Who Dares Wins.
He’s gone toe-to-toe with drug lords, assassins, murderers and gangstas. Does this remind you of anyone?
Fellow hard-man presenter Ross Kemp faced almost identical situations during his series Extreme World, leaving only one logical question.

SIZE & PHYSIQUE: Jason Fox
Based on sheer size alone, Jason Fox wins.
Now, you wouldn’t say that Ross Kemp is a small man, but he’s been made to look a lot larger than what his height and weight stats say.
The 54-year-old is a lot shorter than he looks on TV, 5ft 11, although he is quite bulky.
On the other hand, Jason Fox is a man mountain. He’s well over both 6ft 3 and 110 kg (17 stone).
Considering it’s all muscle, we wouldn’t like to get on the wrong side of those strapping arms…
MILITARY EXPERIENCE: Jason Fox
Although his father served in the military, Ross Kemp doesn’t actually have any direct military experience.
There were rumours that he had previously served in the army yet these were just general assumptions, fuelled by the fact that Ross looked at ease when faced with gunfire and explosions around danger zones in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria in the Extreme World series.
Jason Fox, however, is a 20-year military veteran.
The 41-year-old is now a U.K Special Forces Agent, having served in the ranks since 16 years old as a specialist in counter-terrorism and demolition.
SCARINESS: Ross Kemp
Okay, so we have to give Ross Kemp one of these.
Ross looks so calm and collected when thrown into life-threatening positions it is genuinely scary. And, the fact he hasn’t got any military experience only adds to his hard-man and ‘scared of nothing’ persona.
Oh, and not forgetting those England World Cup videos… frightening!

FIGHTING EXPERIENCE: Jason Fox
Fronting as Grant Mitchell and exchanging fake punches with Phil Mitchell is about as good as gets for Ross in terms of combat training.
Grant did have a mean right hook, mind.
In contrast, Jason has extensive combat training including hostage rescue, bodyguarding and combat swimming.
Clearly, there is the only winner in a fight between TV presenters Ross Kemp and Jason Fox!

The first battle I was in was when I was born 2 months premature and had to fight for my life. In April I’ll be taking on everything the Arctic has to throw at me when I trek to the North Pole to support @bornecharity life-saving research. Thanks @thrudark for the incredible gear! Their stuff coming soon ?? photo by @rollingrogues
