Speaking about heading off again with his son, Bradley said: “Hitting the road with Barney last year was one of the best experiences of my life and I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel of the RV. As long as Barney promises not to forget the HobNobs and the Arsenal duvet, we’ll have a blast.”

With Bradley approaching his 60th birthday, Barney thinks his old man might be getting a bit stuck in his ways and that’s something he plans to change on this trip!

Barney revealed:  “We had a great time last year but it’s definitely time to take it to the next level. Dad is always happiest on the sofa in his slippers but I’ve got a few surprises up my sleeve for this trip to make sure he is pushed to his absolute limit. I can’t wait!”

Dan Baldwin, Executive Producer at Hungry Bear Media added: “Bradley and Barney have embarked on another spine-tingling adventure across America. This series captures the beauty, love and laughs that emanate from the special relationship between a father and his son.

“There will be thrills and spills along the way as Barney pushes his dad out of a TV studio and into the great outdoors of the east coast of America. Expect everything from banjo sing-alongs to face-to-face meetings with sharks. ITV viewers are, once again, in for a real treat.”
