Comedian Johnny Vegas will return for the second series of his Channel 4 TV show, as cameras follow the development of his North Yorkshire campsite.
egas, 51, opened his website on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales after two years of work in which he and his assistant Bev Dixon overcame a series of setbacks.
Channel 4 has ordered the second series of Johnny Vegas: Carry on Glamping, which will follow Vegas and Dixon as they overcome the challenges of expanding locations and growing their businesses.
In the first series, viewers saw the struggles Vegas faced as he tried to open his campsite, nestled in the Washburn Valley, and present a collection of restored vintage cars to guests. .
An antique Maltese bus named after Vegas’ late mother, Patricia, is particularly prominent in series one. The site is also home to an American bus called Skoolie, a 1970’s Toddler Pickup conversion, and a 1960 Fisher Holivan Junior caravan called Billy the Snail, a Citroen camper, and a Firetruck .
The glamping site opens in 2021 and has initially proven a success.
However, due to zoning constraints, an expansion of the original location at Breaks Fold Farm was not possible, leaving Vegas and Dixon to search for a new home for their collection of replacement vehicles. .
Johnny Vegas: A continuation of the Glamping series two will follow the pair as they search for a new freezing point and purchase several more vehicles in need of replacement – including an old helicopter.
“It blew both me and Bev how lovingly Carry on Glamping was received – I still think it should be called What Can Go Wrong Will Go Wrong,” Vegas said. However, the success of our new field and the joy each car brings to so many people is heartwarming. Between Patricia and Lol’s Bar, that certainly helped keep their memories alive and allowed me to rescue more vehicles in need of a loving home.
