Sandi Toksvig and some of her well-known female friends are about to embark on stay-cations like no other in Extraordinary Escapes with Sandi Toksvig, a new 4x60’ series.

Sandi will be travelling with celebrities including Alison Steadman, Sindhu Vee, Jessica Hynes, and Prue Leith, Sandi.

Sandi and her travel pal will also immerse themselves in the natural beauty of each location to make the most of their time away, indulging in wildlife spotting, picnicking on the beach, forest-bathing, cooking local produce and sharing stories as the sun goes down. They’ll reflect on the important things in life - from family, health and careers to exploring the meaning of solitude; as well as sharing lots of laughs and appreciating the privilege of being given the keys to these extraordinary escapes.

Sandi Toksvig: “When it was suggested that I travel around the UK accompanied by these four brilliant women, I had to double check this was work. This year has been a journey of exploration for many of us, and it was a joy to find so many beautiful, quirky and remote bolt-holes around almost every corner. And quite honestly, as much as I adore my family, it’s been wonderful just to leave the house.”

Deborah Dunnett, Commissioning Editor for Formats & Features at Channel 4: “Extraordi-nary landscapes and daring architecture aside, this is a show about getting away from it all. About what happens when you take the time to stop and ponder, in glorious isola-tion. The fact that Sandi is joined throughout the series by a cast of clever, funny, female only travel buddies makes it even more thrilling.”
