Ross Kemp has filmed in some of the most crime-ridden, dangerous parts of the globe for his documentary series Extreme World - and now he is in Northern Ireland for the Twelfth.

Kemp will be in the Ardoyne area of north Belfast on Friday, where previous years have seen violent clashes in the wake of loyalist parades and protests by nationalist residents.

The former EastEnders 'hard man' has already spoken to both bandsmen and protestors, as he tries to get an insight into the sectarian tensions still blighting the peace process in Northern Ireland.

Previously Kemp has visited Mexico's 'murder capital' to investigate drug cartels and talked to child soldiers in the Congo - where militia factions are left to wage war against each other, even in prison, and sexual violence against women is rife.

He has also looked into the heroin problems on the streets of Chicago and barbaric 'witch-hunting' in East Africa.

Closer to home, Kemp was left shocked by the levels of poverty and crime in the poorest parts of Glasgow's inner city.

The new series of Extreme World will be aired on Sky 1 later this year.

Yet more anti british comments made by republicans who for what ever reason live in England and yet they say this rubbish about dont go places your not wanted.If you dont like all things British and English why would you live in England? If i was that bitter which im not and had feeling so strong for all things Irish why be in England.

The whole sad display of flags on both sides is absolutely pathetic. Grow up and stop acting like playground children. Fighting over flags and spouting tired, hate-filled, old slogans. What a pathetic waste of time and energy. Why can't people just grow up and get on with their lives? It's embarrassing. I grew up in Northern Ireland, and am now glad to be out of it.
