Frank takes bull by the horns again.
FRANK Evans is not your average pensioner.
At an age when most chaps are struggling to remember whether they've already seen the episode of Extreme Angler that they're currently halfway through, he's about to step into the bullfight arena.
Frank 'El Ingles' Evans is Britain's only professional Matador, and the only Englishman to achieve the "matador de toros" accolade.
During his long career, he sustained two broken legs, multiple rib fractures and another injury that would make your eyes water.
In 2005, he retired from the arena under medical advice to undergo knee replacement surgery and later a quadruple heart bypass.
But last year, Frank announced that he was taking the bull by the horns again at the tender age of 65.
This film follows Frank's progress over a three-month period - beginning with an intensive training regime - as he prepares to enter the dangerous and controversial world of professional bullfighting once again.
El Ingles: Frank Evans.
