This Morning host Phillip Schofield embarks on a trip of a lifetime to South Africa with his wife Stephanie. 
 
Whilst some people may do all they can to get out of the water when they see a Great White Shark, Phillip heads straight in because diving with one of the world's most dangerous predators has long been a bucket list dream for the TV presenter!
 
To learn more about the sharks, Phillip travels to Gansbaai where he is fully briefed and kitted out in undersea equipment before stepping inside a cage to catch a glimpse of a Great White Shark in the wild. 
 
The couple also explore the city of Cape Town taking in the stunning scenery before stopping on their tour to have a drumming lesson. Taught by a djembe instructor, Phillip and Step join a group of drummers to see if they can learn the rhythms of the country.
