Stars of The Real Marigold Hotel go On Tour in brand new BBC One series
Stars of The Real Marigold Hotel will be heading to four brand new locations in new series for BBC One, The Real Marigold On Tour.Â Produced by Twofour, the 4 x 60′ series will see celebrities from all three series unite to experience retirement in four colourful destinations across the globe.
Miriam Margolyes, Stanley Johnson, Sheila Ferguson and Bobby George experience the breath-taking and baffling country of Russia. From their St Petersburg base, the group will discover the perfect ways to spend their time, from motorcycling to unique health treatments to a blind date, as well as discovering more about the culture and political stance of this huge nation.
Paul Nicholas, Rosemary Shrager and Ian and Janette Tough (aka the Krankies), head to Mexico, with its warm climate, colourful architecture and rich culture. The lively group waste no time in experiencing local past times such as wrestling,Â andÂ kayaking whilst experiencing everyday life in Guadalajara and Ajijic.
Stephanie Beacham, Rosemary Shrager, Wayne Sleep and Syd Little head to Vietnam, a country with a fast growing aging population.Â The group spend their time in Hanoi, where they mix with the locals in Hoam Kiem Lake and the red river, join cycling and art clubs and scale a mountain – and the trip wouldnâ€™t be complete without a stay on the night train.
Â The executive producers are David Clews and Nic Patten. It was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director, BBC Content and Clare Sillery, Head of Commissioning, Documentaries.
