The 52-year-old said that he wanted to kill him.

The man had confessed to killing around 300 girls, and Ross said that this man had “felt sorry for himself”, and cried in front of him while filming in India.

He told the hosts: “Over the series it’s been really hard and the hardest for me was in India when I met someone who was trafficking young girls for sex.

“And he’s on camera, I didn’t know he was going to do it, and admitted to killing around 300 of them.

“My translator heard it first and started crying, then he started crying and I got so angry because he started feeling sorry for himself.

“I don’t mind meeting bad people and interviewing them but when they start feeling sorry for themselves and the things that they do. That was the only time I really nearly lost it.”

Despite raging inside, Ross said that there was no way he could have acted on his emotions as he probably wouldn’t have gotten out alive.

“I terminated the interview and said get him out of my sight before I kill him. He had armed guys with him so I probably wasn’t going to get away with doing that,” he said.

Ross, who was most commonly known for his role as Grant Mitchell on BBC soap EastEnders, has made a name for himself while he travels the globe in search of the most extreme countries.

Although he has come across some of the worlds most dangerous people, he also told viewers that he has met the most amazing people too.

The Barking-born star has got himself in very scary situations though.

After Trump was elected as president, the actor said that he found himself being abused by protesters.

Ross explained: “It was an odd situation.

“I was with the white racist power organisation. I was called a Nazi and had bottles thrown at me. I was called a pig.

“Demonstrators on both sides were carrying assault rifles…”
