Ricky Tomlinson and Sue Johnston will reunite once more, with the pair fronting a travel documentary for More4.
The three-part series sees the pair reminisce about places they hold dear, while travelling to bucket-list locations together. One section will include Shrewsbury Prison, where Tomlinson was imprisoned in the 1970s.
“Sue and I have had a lot of laughs and a lot of memories over the years,” said Tomlinson in a statement. “This new series will give us a chance to put the world to rights as we explore places treasured to us and to many others around Britain.”
“Ricky and I feel so honoured to have shared 40 years on screen together and a firm friendship for all of that time,” added Johnston. “So it’s particularly special to be taking a trip of a lifetime with him around this beautiful country for More4.
“Channel 4 will have a job to do keeping us both on our best behaviour along with the friends we meet along the way,” added the actor, who played Sheila Grant on Brookside.
