In this brand-new series, comedian Rosie Jones takes celebrity friends on an adventure around Britain, gorging on culture, learning local traditions and witnessing scenery that will make you weep. Rosie seeks excitement in unlikely places and meets enthusiastic locals who make each place special, as she throws herself headfirst into every situation. In the heightened reality of the series, Rosie has frequent run-ins with the Channel 4 commissioner (played by Rachel Stubbings), who is too busy dealing with her celebrity contacts to give Rosie’s show her full attention. Narrated by Oscar-winner Olivia Colman. This time, Rosie takes comedian and broadcaster Jamali Maddix to Norwich. They learn an 18th-century folk dance from a bunch of local men who are keeping the tradition of molly dancing alive. They tour the epic Norwich cathedral and watch tiny trains go round and round at the UK’s largest indoor model attraction. Rosie attempts to school Jamali about the finer things in life when they taste a variety of wines at a vineyard just outside Norwich. They sober up before taking on a blacksmithing course, heating and hammering metal under the guidance of a local artisan. Finally, it’s fisticuffs as the pair find themselves in the ring at the renowned World Association of Wrestling, and Rosie joins a tag team to take on a scary pair of tough girls!
