Tv - Gethin Jones Wants To Join Army

British Tv host Gethin Jones is eyeing a new career in the armed forces.

The presenter is considering enlisting in the British Army after witnessing the military's work in Afghanistan, where he spent time filming a new series marking Remembrance Sunday in November (13).

Jones, who was previously engaged to opera star Katherine Jenkins, was overwhelmed by the courage of troops he saw in action.

He tells Britain's Forces' radio station Bfbs, "It's the same mentality. I like being beasted physically. I really like the challenge that they have to go through... I don't know if I could do a whole tour but I'll do my training and see how it goes from there."

Jones has visited Afghanistan three times to film Britain's Bbc series Remembrance week.
