Falcon (Bernadette Hunt)
It is with great sadness that we report that our beloved Falcon (Bernadette Hunt) died on the 14th of March at the age of 59 after battling cancer for a number of years.
Bernadette entered the Gladiators arena as 'Falcon' during the second series in 1993 and instantly became a firm fan favourite. She stayed with the show until its final series in 1999, becoming the second longest-serving female Gladiator.
Falcon was also a champion bodybuilder, winning the first competition she entered Miss Natural Health in 1992. She went on to win other titles including Miss Novice Britain, Miss London and Home Counties 1992 and Miss South Britain.
Many fans will remember Falcon as the most lovely, warm, generous person with a beaming smile!
Our Gladiator family is truly heartbroken with our loss of Bernie.
Please respect the privacy of Bernadette's family at this sad time.
