Which TV traveller would you like to go on holiday with?

Leisurely camel ride with Joanna Lumley or date in the desert with Bear Grylls?


TV bods are always jetting off around the globe for our entertainment and education – but who would you actually want to go on holiday with?


Bear Grylls would be the ideal companion if you were stranded in the Sahara, but what if you were stuck in a restaurant with him – would his dinner conversation be a tad dry?

After debating it in the RT office, we’ve shortlisted our favourite TV travellers. Now we’d like you to pick the winner.

Michael Palin would pack in plenty of amusing anecdotes, while Joanna Lumley‘s velvet voice is so relaxing, you’d be fabulously zen before the plane took off, darling.

If you like fine food and are in the throes of a midlife crisis, you might prefer to take a trip with Rob Brydon AND Steve Coogan (we couldn’t bear to split them up).

But if you’d prefer old-fashioned gags and grumbling, Richard Ayoade is your man.

Or how about a spot of cruising with Loose Woman Jane McDonald
