MORTIMER & WHITEHOUSE RETURN FOR GONE FISHING CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

This hour-long Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Christmas Fishing follows Bob Mortimer returning to his childhood roots in Middlesbrough where he will fish the River Esk and Tees with his dear friend and angling mentor Paul Whitehouse.



As well as trying to catch the glorious Grayling, Bob is also going to try to ignite the joy of Christmas in Paul, who thinks the magic of the season has been lost to commercialism.


Bob will host their office party for two, help cook a memorable Christmas dinner and together they will chat to fellow Middlesbrough lad Chris Rea.


They also meet Laurie, from a national charity organisation, who tells us how we can all look out for lonely people over the holidays.

Will Paul finally see the magic of Christmas through Bob’s eyes? A very big surprise at the end of the programme could guarantee it!
