As if waking the nation up every day isn’t enough for the This Morning host, Phillip Schofield, the presenter takes a break from the sofa and heads to South Africa with his wife Stephanie, for a trip slightly less comfortable.
Wanting to start ticking of his bucket list, Philip goes for a dive to meet the beast that most would swim away from, the Great White Shark. Having always wanted to learn more about the sharks, he travels to Gansbaai where he is fully briefed and kitted out in diving equipment before stepping inside a cage to catch a glimpse of a Great White Shark in the wild.
Back on the ground the couple head off to explore the city of Cape Town seeing for themselves the breathtaking views that most of us have only seen in photographs. To continue their cultural journey the pair stop along the way for a local djembe drumming lesson before they join a group of drummers to see if they can learn the rhythms of the country.
