    Ross Kemp: Living with Dementia

    Series overview

    "I've always believed that to understand a problem, you need to get as close to it as you possibly can. So I'm back meeting people who are living with some of the biggest issues facing Britain today. With almost a million people living with dementia, this is the first of two programmes where I'm meeting people battling with the disease." - Ross Kemp

    Ross Kemp's award-winning Living With series returns with a two-part special exploring the real impact of dementia - Britain’s biggest killer.

    The special, filmed before and during lockdown, forms half of the four-part series which also explores those living with opioids - which are opium-derived drugs - and with being displaced from their homes, to try to gain a vivid insight into their situations.

    In each of the programmes Ross immerses himself in situations to gain a first-hand taste of the issues contributors face, and to explore what is really going on in their lives.

    Episode 1

    In the first episode on dementia, Ross finds out how the disease has impacted the life of his long-time screen colleague, Dame Barbara Windsor, and meets with his close friend, her husband Scott Mitchell. 

    He reveals how Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia, has turned their lives upside down since his wife’s diagnosis six years ago. 

    This is a Silver Star/Freshwater Films production for ITV

    Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad

    “We’re getting you out of your comfort zone, we’re making memories together, that’s what it’s all about!” Barney Walsh

    “Ah guys. I’m not looking forward to this. I’m really not looking forward to this at all. I’ve got itchy bits now. That’s all I need.” Bradley Walsh

    Series overview

    Actor Bradley Walsh and his son Barney are back in a special series which combines series one and series two of their popular road-trip adventures and includes a special, unseen episode of outtakes from their trips.

    This set of six hour-long episodes from the original first and second series sees Bradley and Barney travel from Los Angeles to New Orleans and Florida to Maine, ending with the sixth episode of previously unseen action.

    Episode 1

    The first episode sees the pair start in the showbiz capital of the world, LA, before making their way to Arizona with plenty of surprises along the way. Adrenaline junkie Barney is determined to push Bradley to his limits with body-building, cowboy training, water skiing and- Brad’s worst nightmare – a small spot of sky diving.  

    The trip begins in the City of Angels, Los Angeles, where the duo collect their enormous 36-foot, 7.5 tonne RV - their home for the trip. Barney does his best to put Bradley at ease by kitting it out with all of his dad’s favourite creature comforts, from Hob Nobs and Branston Pickle to board games and an Arsenal duvet cover.

    They set off for Venice Beach but with the legal driving age set at 25, anxious Bradley is stuck behind the oversized wheel for the long haul, and is less than pleased: “Have I really got to drive this? How am I going to get it out of here? It’s like driving a block of flats!”

    First on the agenda is getting Bradley in better shape with a game of volleyball on Venice Beach followed up with a workout on the infamous Muscle Beach with two burly personal trainers. Horrified Bradley tells them: “I frequent the gym quite a bit, as you can tell.”

    The day ends with Barney hitting the piano and Bradley hitting the beer, for a singsong with some of their fellow RV neighbours. But while day one might have ended on a high note, Bradley is terrified to hear that the agenda for day two involves the small matter of jumping out of a plane, at 12,000 feet.

    After driving to Banning airport in California, Barney does his best to reassure his dad: “Mum thought it was a great idea. You’re going to love it…You’ve got to do something that scares you every day.”

    As he gets fitted with a harness and prepares to climb onboard the light aircraft, Bradley’s nerves reach fever pitch: “Ah guys. I’m not looking forward to this. I’m really not looking forward to this at all. I’ve got itchy bits now. That’s all I need.”

    Barney might be able to lead his father to 12,000 feet but can he convince him to jump?

    “You got it. You’re gonna be good…How many fathers and sons get to do this? Families that jump together, stay together!”

    Next Barney and Bradley leave LA behind them and head into the desert towards Arizona as they venture onto the famous Route 66. Barney tells Bradley that after years of watching Westerns, he’s decided his dad should go to cowboy college.

    On the way, they call at Roy’s Café to have their picture taken with the café’s sign - which is one of the most photographed signs in the world. The café is famous for offering a welcome break from the sun for bikers travelling down Route 66.

    Bradley and Barney chat to the bikers and Bradley asks if he and Barney can have a ride down Route 66 on the back of their Harley Davidsons.

    Afterwards Bradley says: “The heat, the open road, that was extraordinary.”

    Next stop is Lake Havasu City, a town created by chainsaw tycoon Robert MuCulloch who, in 1967, spent 10 million dollars buying London Bridge to put his town on the map. MuCulloch had the bridge shipped over from England and it now provides passage across the lake and is festooned with Union Jacks.

    Bradley and Barney stop to have their picture taken by the bridge and have a cup of tea, but whilst Bradley relaxes, Barney plans a spot of water-skiing on the lake. Bradley is adamant he is not taking part, but, after being impressed by Barney, he decides to have a go. However, he discovers it’s not as easy as it looks….

    The next day Barney wakes his dad with a water pistol in the face so they can head off to Arizona Cowboy College deep in the Sonoran Desert. Before they go, Bradley insists on having his usual cup of tea and a biscuit – despite the 50 degree heat….

    The pair have a singalong and are in good spirits when they arrive at cowboy school, but are soon sent away to get changed out of their inappropriate shorts and t-shirts and into some cowboy clobber.

    First on the agenda is lassoing. Bradley and Barney are shown the ropes before competing to see who can lasso the model cow the most times. Next the pair meet the horses which they need to groom and saddle before mounting them and proving their riding skills so they can take part in a cattle drive. Cattle drives are fast moving and can be dangerous, so they can only join in once they are confident on their horses.

    Once they’re given the go ahead, nerves set in. Barney says: “This is nuts.”

    Bradley says: “Yes, you’re right, this is nuts. I’m now herding cattle, I’ve only just got on the horse. How the heck? It’s like getting in a car and then someone saying, ‘Lewis Hamilton is injured, can you take over in the F1 Grand Prix?’”

    Some of the bulls weigh up to a tonne and Barney and Bradley have to work together to keep things under control. Barney struggles to direct his horse and some of the cattle escape through a gap – will they be able to get their act together and get the cattle in check?

    Afterwards Barney says: “I was bricking it.”

    As the ranch owners, Lorri and Rocco review their work as cowboys, they round off their day in the desert with a singalong around the campfire.

    Produced by Hungry Bear Media for ITV.

    Series overview

    The Thomas Brothers have been entertaining viewers for 20 years on some of the UK’s most popular TV shows. This new six-part series sees the celebrity siblings like we’ve never seen them before, as they embark on a trip of a lifetime to explore their Indian heritage. 

    Joined by father Dougie, a music promoter and lead singer of 70s band Dougie James and the Soul Train, the Thomas Brothers head on the ultimate journey of discovery, exploring their Indian roots in the hope of seeking out long lost relatives. Along the way, the family will provide their distinctive take on this colourful country bringing their brotherly warmth and affection along with their infectious humour.  

    Leaving life in Manchester behind, the boys experience all that India has to offer, from the iconic sights of Mumbai to the glorious beaches of Goa. As the lads immerse themselves in the culture of a country that plays a huge part in their family history, viewers also get an insight into the boy’s undeniable bond as brothers. 

    Episode 6

    In this final episode the brothers and Dougie are saying their goodbyes to Mumbai and heading to a family festival with a difference to bring their time in India to a close.

    Before they leave the city behind, word about their search for family has spread and the lads are asked to appear on a local news report with the stunning King Shivaji museum as a backdrop. But it's not exactly what they were expecting...the weather is similar to wet and rainy Manchester, the crew are shooting the interview on a phone and the reporter tells the boys he understands they're best known back in the UK as magicians.

    Their final stop in Mumbai is for a special meeting with 85 year old Norma Otter. Norma was a team-mate of Dougie's international hockey star aunt, Pansy Thomas. Pansy represented India at international level in the 1950's and Norma shares how her diminutive stature coupled with powerful play earned her the nickname 'The Mighty Atom'. Following the chat Norma encourages the boys to take on the junior girl's hockey team who are training nearby. It's not long before the Thomas's realise hockey talent doesn't exactly run in the family.

    It's off to Mumbai's main train station next, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, an impressive UNESCO World Heritage building. The family wave a final goodbye to the 'city of dreams' as they board one of India's iconic trains to make the 200km journey east to Jejuri, a small town with a big festival. 

    They arrive in Jejuri in the midst of the 100,000 festival goers who are there to take part in what's known as the Golden Festival.  After climbing the 400 steps to the temple where the main action takes place Ryan, Adam and Scott are greeted by the site of thousands of festival-goers bathed in a yellow glow and they're soon throwing themselves into the ritual themselves. After being joined by Dougie the four of them reflect on the trip and agree it's helped them them feel closer to their roots and stronger as a family.

    Bradley Walsh is one of the nation’s favourite performers and, in honour of his 60th birthday, ITV is celebrating with a one-off special documenting his illustrious time in television - Bradley Walsh: Happy 60th Birthday.  

    Narrated by Jason Manford, this 1x60’ episode offers viewers an exclusive look at Walsh’s varied career - from stand up comedy and presenting, to quiz shows and acting. - it's an astonishing career spanning four decades.

    As well as forgotten gems from the telly archives, his 80s fashion choices and hairstyles, viewers will also get to relive those moments of TV gold that have turned him into one of the country's most loved stars. 

    Walsh’s first ever TV appearance came in September 1987 on LWT’s 6 O’Clock Show alongside Danny Baker. From there viewers will see exclusive footage of a young, bleached-haired Bradley Walsh presenting his first ever show You Must Be Joking alongside fellow newcomer Shane Ritchie in 1989.

    We take a look at this comedy format he hosted called Only Joking, in which families told jokes against the clock and also see his first bill on an ITV quiz show in 1995, Midas Touch. 

    As well as guest spots on The Royal Variety Show and Live at the London Palladium Bradley diversified into acting with his first role alongside Timothy Spall. His next turn was as a homicidal builder in Channel 4’s Lock, Stock... and then playing Dave Dodds in the film Mike Bassett: England Manager.

    Fans will also relish scenes from his two and half years on the cobbles as Coronation Street’s lovable rogue Danny Baldwin. 

    And looking back to 2009 viewers will see the beginnings of smash-hit quiz series The Chase, as well as his time in ITV drama Law & Order: UK, taking on the character of DS Ronnie Brooks – a recovering alcoholic police officer – which he played for 5 years. 

    As well as cracking moments with Bradley's son Barney in Breaking Dad, and his turn as a time travelling companion in Doctor Who, it’s a must-watch for Bradley Walsh fans.

    Episode 1

    In a brand new series for ITV Grow Your Own at Home with Alan Titchmarsh sees the much-loved gardener share insider tips and tricks on growing your own fruit and vegetables at home. 

    Filmed by his wife Alison while in lockdown, this series sees Alan show viewers how to enjoy the benefits of producing their own food no matter what size garden they have; be it outside space, a balcony or room for a single pot. 

    Plus, holed up in their own very different gardens, the Love Your Garden team - David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill - are also working on their own plots to turn them into productive gardens. Whether that’s creating a veg patch from scratch, a tiny edible terraced garden or making an indoor pizza-themed herb garden for the kitchen. 

    These sequences will be interspersed with archive footage revealing Alan’s experiences of veg gardens, including inspirational growers and stunning gardens from across the country over the past ten years. 

    Where possible the team will be working in real time so the audience can start working on their new gardens at the same time. 

    With health and food supply high on the agenda it’s the perfect time to grow your own. 

    A Spun Gold production for ITV.

    Series overview

    This brand new six part series offers a unique insight into the world of the driving test. Secrets Of The Driving Test was filmed over a two-year period offering unprecedented access to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) with cameras fitted inside and outside of the test car.

    Recently, the driving test has had the biggest shake up in 40 years with new manoeuvres, tricky written tests and new technology being introduced. Since 2017, 4 out of 5 candidates taking the test follow a sat nav for 20 minutes to make the test feel more like driving.

    Secrets Of The Driving Test allows family and friends to watch their nearest and dearest complete every manoeuvre, navigate every roundabout and box junction…in the hope they come back and deliver the magical phrase…’I’ve Passed’.

    Wayne, a DVSA examiner with over 20,000 tests under his belt says: “As you walk out of the door and see the candidate you have no idea of how’s they’re going to perform. I think what makes a good examiner is being relaxed, being friendly and knowing when to talk to the candidate and when to let them concentrate.”

    Episode 6

    Seventeen-year-old Bethany is barely out of the test centre before getting into a game of chicken. Meanwhile, Drew and Julie are back and eager to improve on their catastrophic first tests, while in Blackpool, retired policeman Philip is hoping a pass will finally stop his wife telling him how to drive.    

  • The Queen: Inside The Crown

    When the Queen told her people in 2020: “We will meet again,” she was giving only her fifth unscheduled national address in nearly seventy years. For the first time, this film follows the Royal family’s own frightening experience of the Corona Virus crisis - Charles caught it, and many believe the Queen herself had a “near miss”.

    The film also reminds us of the 94-year-old Queen’s subtle statesmanship. Over her record breaking 68-year reign, Elizabeth II has mastered the art of being a monarch, both at home and abroad. The film examines that reign, from her glorious Coronation to the muted but emotional VE Day celebrations in 2020.

    We see encounters with world leaders from Gorbachev to Trump. Powerful leaders who all highly coveted an invitation to Buckingham Palace. But not all visits go well. Ronald Reagan raised eyebrows after being a bit too “touchy feely” with Her Majesty. And in The National Archives at Kew, royal biographer Robert Hardman uncovers how the visit of Romanian leader Nicolae Ceaușescu both embarrassed Downing Street, and sent the Queen scuttling behind a tree in Buckingham Palace’s back garden trying to avoid the Ceaușescus.

    Elizabeth II inherited the crown at just 25 years old, and coming just a few years after World War II her glittering Coronation ushered in a new wave of optimism and hope. We meet two of her Maids of Honour who attended to her on the day she was crowned.

    The film also reminds us of the Monarch’s steady hand on the Commonwealth tiller, a personal project which has seen the old Empire transformed. Today, with Prince Philip at her side, Elizabeth’s measured response to Covid 19 (after a tricky 2019) may well have left the Royal Family in the best shape for years.

    Series overview

    The Thomas Brothers have been entertaining viewers for 20 years on some of the UK’s most popular TV shows. This new six-part series sees the celebrity siblings like we’ve never seen them before, as they embark on a trip of a lifetime to explore their Indian heritage. 

    Joined by father Dougie, a music promoter and lead singer of 70s band Dougie James and the Soul Train, the Thomas Brothers head on the ultimate journey of discovery, exploring their Indian roots in the hope of seeking out long lost relatives.  Along the way, the family will provide their distinctive take on this colourful country bringing their brotherly warmth and affection along with their infectious humour.  

    Leaving life in Manchester behind, the boys experience all that India has to offer, from the iconic sights of Mumbai to the glorious beaches of Goa. As the lads immerse themselves in the culture of a country that plays a huge part in their family history, viewers also get an insight into the boy’s undeniable bond as brothers. 

    Episode 4

    On this week’s instalment, the family finally escape the chaos of the city and head for a spiritual awakening and a taste of paradise in Goa.

    Lying on India’s west coast with a huge blend of cultures and 80 miles of beautiful sandy beaches, Goa may be one of the smallest states in India but it’s one of the richest, as each year tourists flock to experience a little taste of heaven in this truly magical place. 

    Goa, maybe deemed as the pearl of the orient, but it’s also home to another Thomas cousin. Natasha, the granddaughter of uncle Douglas (Grandad Nolan’s brother), invites the family on one of the area’s beautiful houseboats. As they sample the spectacular scenery of this extraordinary pocket of India, it's soon clear that Natasha has inherited the Thomas’s distinctive and infectious humour.

    After speaking to cousin Keshia, Natasha has researched the brothers on social media ahead of their meeting and after talking to Ryan and Adam about their families jokes that Scott is single, much to his brothers’ delight. 

    After their meeting with Natasha the brothers decided to sample some of the area’s legendary yoga facilities but whilst relatively fit, the brothers all struggle to master their downward dogs as the instructors put them through their paces.  

    In a place renowned for its spiritual enlightenment, the family enlists an energy therapist, but the conversation takes a decidedly different turn as the brothers finally get to have their say and talk to Dougie about how they felt when he left the family home when they were children.

    Adam says to dad Dougie that he has “never apologised” adding that as family rather than talk about this, it became the elephant in the room and instead Dougie “turns everything into a joke.” 

    Scott addresses Ryan adopting the father role for his young brothers when their father briefly disappeared from their lives, admitting to his father that he is proud of them “as brothers’ and especially proud “of what Ryan’s done as a father figure for us.” 

    Adam adds, “He was there when you (Dougie) weren’t and he had to grow up fast when he shouldn’t have had too.”

    Adam reflects that being on this trip and seeing how much his dad Dougie idolises his father has highlighted things missing from their relationship as father and sons.  He says, “He (Dougie) knew how it felt for his dad to be a hero and he took that away from us in a way.  I know he’s hurting, I can see it.”

    An emotional Ryan confesses, “I missed you every day.  (I was) just waiting for you to come back.” 

    Dougie admits regret at what happened in the past, “I didn’t have the strength to (to come back). It broke my heart but I wasn’t strong enough. Don’t ever do what I did.”

    After clearing the air the boys and Dougie talk about how the trip has seen them develop an even closer bond, Scott says, “You’ve made this trip for us dad.”

    An emotional Adam adds, “We all love you so, so much dad”, to which Dougie responds, “I love you so much too.”

    Later Adam remarks, “I thought I was on a lad’s holiday and now we are on a retreat crying our eyes out. We’ve come here to find out about our heritage but really we find out about us as a family.

    We’d never have had that chat back home and I feel better for it.”

    Series overview

    In this sequel to the award winning Harry’s Heroes: The Full English, Harry Redknapp is taking his team of old England Legends on a European Tour. Joining Harry again as Assistant Manager is Liverpool Legend John Barnes, and the team is a who's who of England Internationals including: David Seaman, Paul Merson, Matt Le Tissier, Rob Lee, Ray Parlour, Lee Sharpe, Mark Chamberlain, Mark Wright, Razor Ruddock, and new addition, Aston Villa’s Lee Hendrie.

    Harry’s team have been challenged to a rematch against the German Legends Team – but this time, it's on their home soil. Harry and John decide to make a tour of it – what could possibly go wrong?  

    Episode 3

    It’s the final leg of the Tour in Germany. And there’s only a few days for Harry and John to get the team ready to take on our arch rivals in their own back yard. 

    After checking into their Hotel in the Bavarian Alps, Harry receives the German Team Sheet – and it’s not a pretty read. This year’s team has got over 500 caps and they’ve brought in a Secret Weapon in the form of Thomas Hassler. With over 100 caps of his own, Hassler featured in the winning German squads of the World Cup in 1990 and the Euros in 1996. Harry’s team are going to have to step up their game big time! 

    Penalties are England’s Achilles Heel but Harry and John have a few tricks up their sleeve to help the Lads improve. John thinks the Lads need to learn how to keep a cool head and handle their fear, so arranges for the Team to try out the Bobsleigh track at Konigssee. Reaching speeds of up to 90 miles an hour, the Boys could hit 5G – more than a Formula 1 Racing Driver. Whilst a few of the Lads opt out, nobody can believe it when 72-year-old Harry puts his hand up.

    With the fear of the match going to penalties hanging over their head, Harry brings in a German Psychologist who thinks he’s got the magic formula for making sure the ball hits the back of the net. All you have to do it clench your left fist apparently…. The Lads aren’t that impressed and when the technique fails to deliver, Harry’s worried the Psychologist is a spy for the German Veterans Team! 

    Finally, it’s time for the Ex-England Legends to take on the Germans at Wacker Arena in Burghausen. Luckily for Harry, he’s managed to recruit Manchester United legend, Teddy Sheringham, so the team finally has its missing Striker. The question is, who will win: England or Germany?

The Village meets some of the men and women who are Portmeirion's guardians, helping to run what is now one of Wales’ biggest visitor attractions.

    Harry’s team have been challenged to a rematch against the German Legends Team – but this time, it's on their home soil. Harry and John decide to make a tour of it – what could possibly go wrong?  

    Episode 2

    The second leg of the Tour takes the Boys to Italy, where they’re holing up at a traditional Palazzo in Florence. Assistant Manager John Barnes thinks the Lads need a bit of culture so sends them off sightseeing to take in The Ponte Vecchio and Michaelangelo’s David. It’s not quite their cup of tea so it’s not long before some of the boys find a Bar and Harry finds an ice cream.

    Being back in Italy brings memories flooding back for Mark Wright and John Barnes who were both in the England Squad that travelled there for the World Cup in 1990. Turns out Harry was there too, and was involved in a terrible car crash in which he lost one of his good friends. 

    At Training, Fitness Coach Luke Worthington puts the boys through their paces. 

    Culture Vulture John has heard of a game that’s played locally called Calcio Storico and takes the Boys for a kickabout. He thinks it’s a bit like Rugby but it’s actually got some MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) thrown in which comes as quite a shock to the boys.

    Harry though, wants a proper game and sets his sights on organising the Lads first International Match of the Tour against minnows San Marino. Back in 1993, England had to beat San Marino by 7 clear goals to stand a chance of qualifying for the World Cup. With goalkeeping Goliath David Seaman on the team, surely this bunch of part-time Footballers stood no chance…. Or at least that’s what everybody thought, before Computer Science Student Davide Gualtieri scored, what was then, the fastest International Goal in history past Safe Hands Seaman in just 8 seconds. It was a national humiliation. The question is – will history repeat itself? 

    To strengthen his team, Harry brings in a new player, in the form of former Wimbledon midfielder Vinnie Jones. He might have played for Wales, but Harry thinks he’s got the heart of a true English Lion.

    Series Synopsis

    British dogs can’t believe their luck right now – the whole family is at home and it’s time to play. But you’re only allowed out for one walk a day, you can’t head to the countryside for a long romp and lots of parks are instigating a dogs on a lead rule. So as ten million UK dogs start to get a bit bored, this series is packed full of inspirational stories of how to bond with your dog and tips on how to keep them entertained, happy and healthy at home to get you and your dog through lockdown together. This is the show for everyone who must “Sit! Stay!” at home with man’s best friend. Narrated by Martin Clunes.

    Episode 4

    We're all at our home more with our dogs these days, and whilst they relish being 'man's best friend', it's important to remember that dogs were originally bred for specific purposes such as hunting and herding - not so relevant in British households today. Dogs nonetheless thrive on a clear sense of purpose and an outlet for their work ethic.

    In this episode, we look at how you can tap into those instincts to keep your dog happy and help you out in the process too. Labradors were once bred to help Canadian fishermen and now make fantastic assistance dogs .While many of us are home schooling, maybe it's time to take a leaf out of Bodie, the Jack Russell's book - who helps children with their reading. Summer, the Golden Retriever, discovered her maternal urges extends to rescue kittens, and Kyan's purpose is a little particular - howling along to a 90s club hit.

    Series overview

    In this sequel to the award winning Harry’s Heroes: The Full English, Harry Redknapp is taking his team of old England Legends on a European Tour. Joining Harry again as Assistant Manager is Liverpool Legend John Barnes, and the team is a who's who of England Internationals including: David Seaman, Paul Merson, Matt Le Tissier, Rob Lee, Ray Parlour, Lee Sharpe, Mark Chamberlain, Mark Wright, Razor Ruddock, and new addition, Aston Villa’s Lee Hendrie.

    Harry’s team have been challenged to a rematch against the German Legends Team – but this time, it's on their home soil. Harry and John decide to make a tour of it – what could possibly go wrong?  

    Episode 1
     
    The tour kicks off in France. John is in charge of the itinerary and he’s booked the team into a self-catering hotel in the quiet medieval town of Provins. Harry wants the lads to be on a detox and cook their own healthy food, but they don’t even get through the first night without hitting the beers and ending up at the curry House. Harry’s not happy. 
     
    Last year, the lads lost nearly 8 stone between them. Harry’s hopeful that they’ve kept it up – but after a weigh in with fitness coach Luke Worthington, nothing could be further from the truth. And it gets worse, as Razor, who had a heart scare last year, reveals he’s been to see a Cardiologist and has been told he can’t exercise and needs to have a procedure on his ticker. 
     
    Harry’s determined to get the boys back in shape for the grudge match against Germany, so he’s organised a big game in France against FC Metz. In the French Premier League, their veterans team, featuring David and Ray’s old Arsenal teammate Robert Pires has never been beaten. The lads are going have to pull out all the stops, especially seeing as they’ve lost their star striker Robbie Fowler, who’s currently managing a football team in Brisbane. Robbie promises to organise a great forward for the team, and doesn’t half deliver, in the form of Liverpool’s Michael Owen. But even with the support of Michael, the only Three Lions wearer to have scored in four consecutive major tournament, there’s no escaping this will be a tough match. 
     
    As well as the football, with the lads back together, the mickey taking and mischief is in full swing. So after more than a few pints too many, Harry and John decide it's time to show the boys who’s Boss and organise a surprise 5-a-side game. The ex-England Players can’t believe their eyes when they see they’ll be playing a French nudist team. Will they be able to keep their eyes on the Ball? 
     
    Being away from home is also a chance to catch up with each other's personal lives. Last year, Paul Merson revealed he was struggling with gambling. Now, sober and bet free, Paul is ready to join the the boys – but how will the new, settled Merse view their antics this time?
