DAREDEVIL documentary maker and ex-EastEnder Ross Kemp nearly made a TV show where he dived down to the Titanic on an OceanGate submersible.
But the expert production company behind it quickly decided it was unsafe for anybody to go on the vessel after doing its own checks.
Ross, 58, best known for playing hardman Grant Mitchell on the BBC1 soap, was being lined up to front the programme last summer.
His agent, InterTalent boss Professor Jonathan Shalit, said: “Their team checked out this OceanGate submersible and pulled out of using it, as it was simply not considered safe or fit for purpose.
“They found other sub dives which have been safe and successful, but by that point Ross was so busy with all his TV shows that he was unable to commit the time.
“I am just relieved not to have had my post note in history as the agent who killed Ross Kemp.”
