Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad

Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad

Series 2 - Episode 3



Barney’s aim on these road trips is to push his old man to his limits. And watching his dad dangling halfway down a sheer cliff in Kentucky, tearfully muttering “I absolutely hate this”, it seems he’s finally achieved his goal. Abseiling clearly terrifies Bradley – even more than their hysterical visit to a haunted school. And that’s pretty scary.

To make amends, Barney very sweetly tells his dad how much fun he has with him and how he values these father/son experiences. I’m sure that’ll be a great comfort to Walsh Senior if he ends up in hospital after one of their adventures.


For the next leg of their journey, Bradley and Barney visit the Red River Gorge in Kentucky, before heading to the supposedly haunted Poasttown Elementary School in Middletown, Ohio. The next day, they travel to Louisville, birthplace of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, where they follow in his footsteps by sparring at the local boxing gym. At the end of a long day, Barney rewards his dad with a well-earned meal at a KFC restaurant in Kentucky - the home state of the chain's founder Colonel Harland Sanders.
