Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad to return for second series on ITV


Bradley Walsh and his son Barney will return to ITV with a second series of Breaking Dad.

Actor and presenter Bradley Walsh and his 21-year-old actor son Barney will hit the road together once again for a brand-new six-part series.

A synopsis for the new episoes reads: “They might be father and son but when it comes to travelling they remain worlds apart and as Bradley approaches his 60th birthday he is keen to relax, while Barney wants to live life a little more on the edge.

“Worried his old man is too stuck in his ways, Barney takes the lead in planning another adventurous trip that his dad will never forget.”

Bradley and Barney ended series one in the deep South, so where better to start their next epic adventure than at the southernmost point of the continental USA: the Florida Keys.

With a route that will take in Florida, Georgia and then head north through the East Coast states, the trip promises more thrills, spills and excessive adrenaline levels thanks to a spot of shark diving and the lure of white-knuckle speedway racing…

Bradley Walsh 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.”

Barney Walsh added: “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!”

Nicola Lloyd, Commissioning Editor, ITV Factual Entertainment commented: “The reaction to Bradley and Barney’s adventures last year was incredible and we are delighted to be bringing back the RV for a brand new trip of discovery to put their unique relationship to the test once again with many more leaps into the unknown.”

Dan Baldwin, Executive Producer at programme makers Hungry Bear Media said: “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.”

Bradley Walsh and Son: Breaking Dad series 2 will air on ITV in the new year.
