I TALK The Trip to Spain

After three years away, The Trip is returning to our screens on a new channel and with a new destination.

When The Trip began in 2010 on BBC Two, it was a rather odd proposition. Steve Coogan, best-known for playing Alan Partridge and Rob Brydon, who most recently had played Uncle Bryn in Gavin & Stacey were to travel around the north of England on a restaurant tour commissioned by The Observer.


In case you’ve never seen The Trip before, both Coogan and Brydon are playing fictional versions of themselves - sharing personal stories and endless impersonations. I’ll leave it up to you to decide quite how fictional these performances really are.


Four years after the first series proved so popular, The Trip returned as The Trip To Italy. As the title would suggest the new series saw Steve and Rob go on a road trip reviewing six different restaurants from all around Italy.
