Filming, according to The Sun newspaper, is set to recommence on ITV travelogue Emission Impossible after filming was halted last Autumn after one of its hosts was involved in an incident.

The six-part series is led by Gino D’Acampo and Fred Sirieix. Filming was suspended in October 2023 when Gino was involved in an incident.

Gino said (via The Sun) at the time: "I am shocked I have not had a phone call from ITV to see how I am and I cannot wait to talk to them about all of this. After 22 years of working with them, I am in an accident and I get ill, and yet I don’t get a phone call; I smell a fish. I think ITV have no idea what happened."

A source told The Sun this week: "It’s quite unusual for a show to be shelved quite so spectacularly, only to be brought back months later. Usually they end up getting written off completely. But ITV clearly felt like this was worth going the extra mile for. Emissions Impossible was all about being greener when travelling."

The new series sees the duo pack their bags for an epic new adventure, but this time they may have bitten off more than they can chew as they attempt to go green.

The duo are due to visit Austria, whose capital was ranked as the greenest city in the world in 2020, but which is suffering from melting glaciers and Croatian islands that are at risk of rising sea levels, all the while tracking down sustainable produce and immersing themselves in environmentally-friendly lifestyles, that we could all learn from.

Gino and Fred said on the original commission: “We’re thrilled to be upcycled by ITV for another action-packed adventure and can’t wait to cook up some fantastic sustainable dishes whilst hopefully stirring up debate around these important issues.  We might not come up with the recipe to save the planet but we hope to entertain, inform and inspire the audience to think about making changes in their own lives.”

More details will be revealed in due course.
