Glamping is on the rise in Britain, and it’s no longer just a posh tent in a field. Up and down the country, people are repurposing old vehicles into stunning boutique hotels. And now, a most unlikely person is joining the fray. Award-winning comedian and entertainer Johnny Vegas wants to create the country’s coolest glamping site. This series follows Johnny, his long-suffering assistant Bev and a gang of vintage bus enthusiasts, as they attempt to bring new life to a collection of old vehicles as the clock is ticking to get the site open in time. It’s time to buckle up, keep calm, and carry on glamping! In this episode, Johnny’s attempts to create a glamping site made up of repurposed old vehicles hit more problems. Not only does he have to find a new location for his site, he also has to persuade master craftsman Pauleo that his knackered 1950s Maltese bus is worth saving. Johnny buys another vintage camper van that Pauleo thinks is a much better investment, and this one is a surprise gift for Bev. Can Johnny and Pauleo come up with a cunning plan to keep Bev in the dark while they restore her secret present? And Johnny and Bev head to Yorkshire where they think they’ve found the perfect location for their glampsite – but Covid-19 hits and threatens the whole enterprise.
