'Extreme World' star Ross Kemp has revealed he slept through an earthquake that measured 7.6 on the Richter scale

Ross Kemp slept through an earthquake that measured 7.6 on the Richter scale.

The 50-year-old TV presenter was in Mexico filming the latest series of 'Extreme World' - which sees him head to some of the world's most dangerous places - when the earthquake struck.

However, Ross was unmoved by the quake, saying: "I fell asleep and missed an earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale.

"The crew ran out of their room and into the road - so much for team spirit - while Kempy nodded off. I woke up and my bed had moved right across the room. The windows were broken.

"I'm lucky that I can sleep anywhere - helicopters, 4x4s on bumpy ground, armoured personnel carriers, C-130 transporter aircraft.

"It's annoying for everybody else because I snore quite loudly. He who sleeps first, sleeps longest."

Ross has also played down talk of reprising the role of Grant Mitchell in 'EastEnders' for the show's 30th anniversary next month.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I know there's talk at the moment about my going back. "Unfortunately, I won't be able to because I'm working.

"Never say never - I've always said that, and I would act again if the right role came along. According to my teacher at drama school, comedy was what I was good at…."
