If you enjoyed The Real Marigold Hotel earlier this year, you're in luck. They're going on tour...

Four of the cast from the first seriesMiriam Margoyles, Wayne Sleep, Bobby George and Rosemary Shrager – will reunite for a brand new adventure, only this time they'll be road-testing the best places in the world to grow old. 

No, we're not talking the, er, sunny climes of Bournemouth. The gang will be grabbing their passports and jetting off first to Florida – dubbed the retirement capital of the world – to visit the millions of Americans living out their older years in vast gated communities. 

They'll also be making the trip to Japan to sample sushi, wander temples and discover the secrets of longevity in one of the world's largest ageing populations. 

Not a bad way to spend your retirement, eh?
