Actually if it is the programme he has done with 1 Royal Anglian in Helamnd it should be a good watch.
So I would reserve judgement if I was you, as he is actually trying to promote the work we do out there not take the pi$$. If he is a popular entertainer and people are prepared to watch his programmes - and he incidently shows the public what we are doing in Afghanistan - then actually he is achieving more than Dannett can in the press!
Just my two pence worth - and yes I have met him and he is a rather nice bloke actually - don't believe all you see on TV he has to pay the bills like the rest of us.
For the less well educated here is the full story....now he did fill his boots and it was released.
The former EastEnders star Ross Kemp is spending four weeks on operations with the infantry in the lawless Helmand Province to film a documentary aimed at boosting recruitment figures.
Kemp, whose dad was in the Army, has already undergone a gruelling training programme and has learned how to fire a weapon.
He headed off with the 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment and a small film crew early last week after picking up a BAFTA award for his latest TV series, Ross Kemp On Gangs.
One pal said: "He told us it had been really difficult to get insurance because they're going to the frontline and the bosses at Tiger were very worried about something happening out there.
"For the four weeks they're going to be at great risk and Ross said he and the crew were very nervous. He made a point of saying goodbye to everyone he could. He also joked there was one bit of him they weren't able to insure - his private parts. But he wouldn't say why."
Kemp and his team of two cameramen, a sound man and producer have been training with the regiment - nicknamed the Vikings - since the start of the year. They took part in military exercises on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire wearing heavy backpacks, firing live ammunition and learning to fend for themselves.
The crew is being given unprecedented access by the Royal Anglian Regiment in the hope the programme can help the Army boost recruitment, with 2,500 posts unfilled and numbers at their lowest since the Napoleonic Wars.
After playing an SAS sergeant in TV drama Ultimate Force - and with his father formerly in The Royal Norfolk Regiment - Kemp was keen to investigate life in the Army today.
The documentary aims to show how 21st Century soldiers fight the Taliban, survive in extreme conditions and try to win the hearts and minds of locals.
An insider said: "The MoD are bending over backwards to help. They really hope the programme will present the Army in a good light and attract more recruits.
"A lot of filming's been done already and the MoD gets a big say on what stays in the final cut.
"The trouble is, one scene he's insisting has to stay shows some of the lads having to use their own money to buy kit on eBay. It's not great PR but the top brass hope it will be overshadowed by some Boys' Own stuff from the front."
Last year 14,000 recruits left the Army and only 12,000 joined, despite the recruitment age limit being raised from 26 to 33.
The Army has also had to recruit from abroad, with one in 10 British soldiers now a foreign national.
The four-part series, called Ross Kemp On Afghanistan, will be shown in the autumn.
I think he did the programme because his relative was in the Norfolk Regiment now part of the Royal Anglians. He has been filming with them before they went to Afghanistan and while they were there and then when they got back too. It should be a great programme but then I am biased as my son is in it too.
I agree that this type of programme will highten the publics understanding of what is happening there, but we have the TV guys on the news most nights with the guys in Helmund etc etc, but the truth of matter is this will probably be dished up as entertainment rather than educational cos Mr Kemp is fronting it. I hope i am wrong tho!!
