The sleeper hit of the summer TV season, Gone Fishing – the show where comedians Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse sit on river banks and attempt angling for laughs – is to come to Wales as part of its next series.
A huge success with both critics and fans alike during its recently ended six-week run, its rapturous reception almost seemed to guarantee it a second outing – a return which has just been confirmed in a tweet from Mortimer himself.
“Anyone know of an interesting place for me and Paul to stay next month near Crickhowell for Gone Fishing?” it read – a request that’s received some 729 replies and more than a thousand and a half retweets.
And the responses ranged from two man tents to tree houses, five hotels to shepherds’ huts.
But, while there was disagreement over what they should choose as accommodation, there was overwhelming agreement on one thing.
Gone Fishing series two will air for another six-episode stint in 2019 and promises to see Bob and Paul “exploring more of the UK’s finest fishing spots whilst again discussing life’s big questions and sharing their personal experiences in their inimitable way.”
