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. Rosie’s journey concludes as she and fellow comedian Jenny Eclair have an outdoorsy adventure on the beautiful Welsh island of Anglesey. The pair discover they’d make terrible farmers when they try their hand at sheep herding and visit the island’s many Neolithic stone sites. Rosie takes Jenny on a horse ride along the beautiful waterfront, and they take to the skies on the world’s fastest zip wire. As the sun sets, a coast craft expert teaches them essential survival skills on one of the island’s many picturesque beaches, and it’s soon evident that they’d not last more than few hours if left to fend for themselves.
