Ross Kemp Prepares for GIF Superstardom

By Gary Cutlack on at

That man who was one of those men on EastEnders is preparing an amazing gift for the internet of tomorrow, as he's allowed himself to be filmed taking a hit of spice – the rough as hell homemade prison drug – and his reaction is every bit the face you'll want to insert to politely end every internet conversation.

Kemp's been filming inside Belmarsh Prison, home to some of the UK's worst examples of man. While there he happened across an inmate's vape that was loaded with a small amount of a variant of spice and, well, seeing as it might make good telly, decided to fire it up and have a small hit. When in Rome, Rodney. When in Rome.

He then pulls a face and warps into a smile like he's Gregg Wallace having a warm Bakewell tart straight off the Mr Kipling production line, and all he did was have a small snifter while the prison officers looked on, pretending they don't also fire up all the half-spent vapes they confiscate in the staff room at the end of the day.

"I am rarely lost for words but as I turn to camera, I have lost the ability to speak" is what the subtitles will say he says. [Mirror]
