Ross Kemp divides fans with ‘over dramatic’ Millennium Dome Heist documentary

Viewers of new ITV documentary The Millennium Dome Heist were divided on Wednesday evening after Ross Kemp's narration of the show was accused of over dramatising the story.

The one off programme told the story of the infamous raid to steal a £350 million diamond on display at the Millennium Dome in North Greenwich in 2000.

Using CCTV footage and interviews with officers working on the operation to stop the thieves.

Robbers used a JCB digger to ram through the wall of the dome and race to the Money Zone where the diamond was on display.

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "How good are Ross Kemp documentary’s then #MillenniumDomeHeist."

Another added: "Yet Another fascinating documentary, thank you Ross Kemp."

A third continued: "Ross Kemp could tell me the time and make it sound exciting #TheMillenniumDomeHeist #RossKemp."

However, others were less impressed.

One viewer moaned: "Ross . Why do you. Keep stopping . Mid sentence ? It’s like. Your talking . To us all . As if we’re . Kids."

A second chimed in: "When Ross Kemp does one of those long mid sentence pauses it sounds like the Eastenders ‘Duf Duf Duf’ is coming. #MillenniumDomeHeist."

A third hit out: "I just can't deal with Ross Kemp's vocal delivery.

"He's almost as monotone as Dermot O'Leary. It irritates my ears."

Meanwhile, a fourth viewer tweeted: "Looking over dramatic already #MillenniumDomeHeist."

Despite their elaborate plan to steal the 203-carat Millennium Star De Beers diamond police managed to catch the robbers red handed.

After weeks of meticulous surveillance, the Flying Squad hid in the basement of the dome as seven thieves ram-raided the venue and starting trying to smash through armoured glass where the prized diamond was held.

Thanks to cops hard work, the plan failed at the last minute and the thieves were caught and faced a judge in court.
