Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris are set to lead a brand-new European road trip series that will land on BBC One and iPlayer.

Paddy and Chris: Road Trippin’ (w.t.), a BBC Studios Factual Entertainment Production, will explore how those in Sweden, Greece and Switzerland approach aging and share their secrets to living a long, full life. BBC Studios will handle distribution of the three-parter.

“I’m very much looking forward to getting back on the road with Chris Harris,” said McGuinness. “Not so much looking forward to sharing a confined space with him. He doesn’t believe in deodorant. On the plus side, he’ll give me something to laugh at along the way. Bring it on!”

Harris commented: “Paddy’s idea of long-haul travel is driving from Bolton to Blackpool, so this European road trip should be a real eye-opener for both of us. When we’re finished debating the merits of literally everything we encounter, viewers will hopefully take something rewarding away from our deep-dive into the secrets of human longevity—but I’m just hoping my interest in the subject doesn’t dwindle as each mile goes by in Paddy’s company!”

Kalpna Patel-Knight, head of entertainment commissioning, said: “Paddy and Chris are packing their bags and heading off to Europe in this exciting new adventure. The pair will explore different countries, cultures and people and will also be trying to discover the secrets to living a long and fulfilling life. They will be trying their very best to embrace these new experiences, all whilst having a good laugh along the way too. Bon voyage, chaps!”

Kat Lennox, BBC Studios’ creative director for factual entertainment, added: “Paddy and Chris’ on-screen chemistry has always been a favorite amongst audiences, and we’re so excited to be bringing more of an insight into their friendship through this adventure of a lifetime. With plenty of bants along the way, of course, it’s certainly going to be entertaining!”
