Review

Richard Ayoade is off to have a “Balearic ball” with Taskmaster panellist Jessica Knappett on the Mediterranean island that’s famous for foam parties and clubbing. Not that Richard is planning to do any of that, although they are staying in the glitzy hotel where Wham!’s Club Tropicana video was filmed.

Not surprisingly, Jessica is in fits of helpless laughter as Richard struggles to relax in a gong bath (“That’s the longest dinner bell I’ve ever heard”), converse with strangers over lunch and keep dry while flow-riding in an aqua park. Apart from being able to sing that Vengaboys’ hit several times, her highlight is drinking brandy at breakfast.

Summary

Richard Ayoade is joined by writer and actor Jessica Knappett for his latest trip, touring the island in a silver Citroen 2CV, discovering there is more to Ibiza than foam parties, and visiting the Unesco world heritage site of Dalt Vila in the capital. They also take in al fresco art at the island's version of Stonehenge, experience an exclusive supper club run by the global superstar chef Boris Buono and sample a selection of pricy cocktails, flowriding and a hippy gong bath.
