Martin and Gary Kemp are making a new TV show about the history of gang culture.

'Celebrity Big Brother' finalist Martin and his brother - who famously portrayed underworld twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray in a 1990 flim - will explore past and present gangsters across the country in the new series.

Martin told the Daily Star newspaper: "We are doing a show about the history of gangland Britain.

"Gary looks at historical gangs in our country and I look at the new ones."

The show will also see the brothers - who were both members of 80s pop band Spandau Ballet - interact with some real life gang members.

Martin, 50, also made it clear the show, which will air this autumn on the Crime And Investigations Network, will be nothing like his fellow former 'EastEnders' actor Ross Kemp's underworld exploring shows for Sky.

He explained 'Ross Kemp on Gangs' is a "more gratuitous" show, whereas his won't be "peril making, but it is exciting."

After touring two years ago Martin hinted that Spandau Ballet might soon get back together once again, adding: "[Singer] Tony Hadley's off doing his own thing. Me and Gary have also got stuff on. But I hope it will work again soon and we can get it together."
