The series, titled Giovanni And Anton: Adventures In Sicily, will reportedly film this Summer and air later this Auutmn alongside the new series of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One.



The travel show, produced by BBC Studios, will see Giovanni take Anton to Sicily in Italy, where he was born an raised. The pair will explore the local culture and revisit sights from Giovanni's past.


A source told The Sun: "Telly travelogues seem to be all the rage right now, but producers know they only work if their hosts have the right dynamic...



"With Giovanni they have the smooth sex appeal and in Anton they have his self-deprecating humour. And of course they couldn’t be outdone by fellow Strictly stars Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli, whose jaunt round the UK proved a hit on ITV last year."


The BBC declined to comment when approached by TV Zone.
