What is Ricky and Ralf’s Very Northern Road Trip about?

Ricky Tomlinson said: "People are always going on about exotic holidays here, luxury cruises there, finding your inner-self wherever.

"Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a bit of sun on the Med as much as the next man – but for my money, there’s everything you could ever want on your doorstep here in the north of England – and no better way to see it than in your own home on wheels."

Ralf Little added: "I've been lucky enough to do a fair bit of travelling around various bits of the world – but this promises to be a holiday like no other. Weeks on the road, in a campervan with my 80-year-old TV dad.

"In the middle of autumn. What could possibly go wrong? Seriously, bring it on. Who knows, I may even be able to teach him a thing or two about the north."
