Bradley & Barney Walsh: Breaking Dad episodes

Episode 1 – 11 January
In the first episode of the series they’ll be travelling from their home in Essex all the way to the Amalfi Coast in Italy, but the first stop on their road trip is The Netherlands, where they try out one of the country’s oldest sports, canal jumping.

The action continues when the pair don lycra for a spot of velodrome track cycling, alongside a world champion, and before they leave the country, father and son take on the world’s tallest freestanding climbing wall.

Episode 2 – 18 January
Bradley and Barney Walsh continue their European adventure in Germany. They head to the city of Frankfurt, where Brad is pushed to the edge, literally, as he attempts to abseil down the side of a building, facing forwards.


The boys also make a stop at a bratwurst themed hotel and soak up some local Bavarian culture when they have a go at Finger Wrestling. The pair finish off their time in Germany with a wet and wild adventure in the mountains.

Episode 3 – 25 January
The next stop on Bradley and Barney Walsh’s European road trip is Switzerland. They take in the breath-taking views with a ride on a mountain rollercoaster, before exercising their vocal chords when they try the Swiss tradition of yodeling.

The following day, Barney arranges a unique way for them to enjoy some local cheese, and then drive to the Contra Dam, where Barney reveals they are about to attempt one of James Bond’s most iconic stunts, a petrifying 220 metre-high bungee jump.

Episode 4 – 1 February
This week the pair head to Slovenia where Brad’s passion for bikes gives Barney an excuse to take his dad motocross racing, which turns out to be a very slippery challenge. After hearing that one in 200 people in Slovenia is a beekeeper, they make a stop to meet one, but they won’t be seeing any bees. Instead, they will be treated to some unusual honey therapies.

Upon reaching the capital city of Ljubljana, things take a magical turn when the pair join Slovenia’s national Quidditch team, followed by a trip towards the mountains in Planica, where they have a go at the notoriously dangerous sport of ski jumping. Their stay in Slovenia ends with a visit to one of the country’s most spectacular caves.

Episode 5 – 8 February
For the penultimate leg of their journey, Bradley and Barney head to Italy, starting in the picturesque Lake Garda, where Barney surprises his dad by explaining they’ll be running off the top of Monte Baldo and paragliding over the lake below. Soon after, Bradley takes a dip in the lake when he tries paddleboard yoga.

The next day the guys travel to the River Po for a boat trip like no other, as Bradley is treated to a hair-raising ride in a Formula 1 speed boat. They then head towards the coast for an incredible surprise when father and son are invited to the home of opera superstar, Andrea Bocelli.

Episode 6 – 15 February (Last episode)
Barney and Bradley Walsh embark on the final leg of their European road trip, as they continue to explore Italy. Having reached Rome, they take a trip back in time to battle it out as gladiators.

They continue south and make a stop to soak up the views from a sky high zipwire. As the boys reach their final stop on the Amalfi Coast, they get the chance to swim in the stunning sea, but they’ll have to cliff dive in first.

As their trip draws to a close, father and son reminisce about their unforgettable trip.


Bradley & Barney Walsh: Breaking Dad airs on ITV on Monday nights.
