Extraordinary Escapes with Sandi Toksvig | Series 2 Preview (Channel 4)

Broadcaster and national treasure Sandi Toksvig sets out on more glorious adventures across the country, accompanied by some of the nation's most fascinating and funny women.



In this first episode of a new series, queen of comedy and author Sarah Millican joins Sandi Toksvig in Devon. Sarah may be taking a break from her 170-date tour, but it's still a giggle a minute from the very first stop - a stunning Scandi-inspired architectural retreat ingeniously built into a hillside and tucked away in a small wood.



While connecting with nature, the duo visit the wilds of Exmoor, where Sarah gets to indulge her love of animals by naming some recently born Exmoor ponies. In Lee Bay on Devon's north coast, Sandi and Sarah stay in a 16th-century mill house, dramatically positioned on the water's edge, that is full of both history and surprises.



Sarah relives her childhood holidays spent rock pooling, while Sandi offers up some unexpected facts on supersized ocean penises.



Their final stop is Crowness Cleave, where they enjoy a sublime and unusual tucked-away private spa retreat, before experiencing the ultimate form of relaxation - a gong bath - which turns out to be the only time when they both stop laughing for more than a minute.



All episodes of this series will be available to stream or download for free on All 4 from 17 February, following the transmission of this episode.
