Channel 5 has announced the six celebrities taking part in a new series of No Place Like Home. The six-part run kicks off with Fern Britton returning to her hometown of Gerrards Cross.
No Place Like Home will see Amanda Abbington, Fern Britton, JJ Chalmers, Victoria Derbyshire, Chris Kamara, and Ben Miller take a walk down memory lane returning to the neighbourhoods where they grew up, discovering the history that was on their doorstep all along.
Each episode sees a celebrity learning more about themselves and the places they called ‘home’ as they explore the areas that made them.
The series travels across the UK, with Ben Miller returning to Nantwich; JJ Chalmers heading to Edinburgh; Chris Kamara visiting Middlesbrough; Fern Britton going back in time to Buckinghamshire; Amanda Abbington to Hertfordshire and Victoria Derbyshire returning ‘home’ to Bury and Littleborough (Greater Manchester).
Jay Blades, MD of Hungry Jay said: “I’m so proud that my production company has made another series of No Place Like Home for Channel 5. After going on my own journey last year, I can’t wait for everyone to see these six celebrities discover more about the history of the streets where they grew up in this very special series” Daniel Pearl, Commissioning Editor, Unscripted, at Channel 5 said: “We are so pleased to be recommissioning No Place Like Home. The first series performed brilliantly for us, and we hope that it will establish itself as yet another new returnable factual hit series for Channel 5”
