Death in Paradise star Danny John-Jules: ‘We’re three old Inbetweeners on bikes!’

Death in Paradise star Danny John-Jules has teamed up with two pals for a 1,250-mile motorcycle ride from the UK to Valencia for biker charity Riders for Health.

Danny, TV sports presenter Matt Roberts and motorcycle entrepreneur Steve Keys all get a bit saddle sore for a very good cause – to raise awareness for Riders for Health, a charity which uses motorbikes to ensure vital healthcare reaches rural communities in Africa.

“The trip was tough and really tested our mettle, but ultimately it was fun,” reveals Danny John-Jules, also well known for cult BBC comedy Red Dwarf. "It’s a bunch of mates on the same level having a laugh. Tune in if you want to watch three old ‘Inbetweeners’ on bikes!”

Steve added: “We’ve created the ultimate motorcycle trip. But it’s not just about the journey, viewers also get a look behind the scenes at the prep, the laughs and the setbacks."

Dressed head-to-toe in pink and travelling on pink bikes, the trio’s adventures are billed as a ‘travelogue for a difference’.

Viewers can watch their escapades in The Easy Riders – The Ultimate Bike Ride on the Community Channel on March 19 on Sky 539, Virgin 233, Freeview 63, Freesat 651, BT Vision, BBC iPlayer and online at at 10.30pm.
