Mark Wright TV series air date

Mark Wright will join forces with his brother and dad for a new BBC One TV show.


Produced by Twenty Twenty (All That Glitters, A House Through Time), A Wright Family Holiday is a new travel series celebrating all that’s great, adventurous and fun about holidaying in Britain.

Across the six-part series the Wrights will be seen enjoying a range of activities as well as opening up to each other by sharing their different life experiences of mental health, grief, careers, parenting and fame.

A teaser shares: “The series will see the trio take time out of their daily routine to reconnect with one another, as they explore the stunning British countryside, idyllic beaches and breath-taking mountains, on a trip packed full with white-knuckle activities, emotional revelations, and plenty of laugh-out-loud family banter.

“Their adrenaline-fueled adventure takes them across the breadth of the country as they mountain bike across the rocky paths of Eryri (also known as Snowdonia), hang glide in the Peak District, skydive in Skegness, quad bike through Northumberland, horse ride in Cornwall and bungee jump off Garry Bridge Pitlochry in Scotland.

“As well as taking part in adventures, the series will capture the guys playing pranks on their dad, setting competitive challenges for each other and staying in unusual places, from sleeping in an underground mine in Wales to camping under the stars in the Peak District.”

A Wright Family Holiday airs on BBC One on Thursday, 8 June at 8PM, with all episodes available on BBC iPlayer.


Mark Wright said: “From everything I’ve done since I started my career, this is by far the most special to me. Embarking on a journey full of life changing experiences with my two best mates. It’s time we needed together to smile and have fun again after what the last two years threw at us as a family.

“Like many other families, it’s been tough times emotionally, so I hope I can bring others along with us on this fun packed adrenaline series and encourage them to do the same. Quality time and making memories with your family is priceless.”
