PREVIEW: Rosie's Trip Hazard, Channel 4

In this brand-new series, comedian Rosie Jones takes celebrity friends on an adventure around Britain, gorging on culture, learning local traditions and witnessing scenery that will make you weep.

From the glorious vistas of the Lake District to the seaside charms of Whitby, Rosie seeks excitement in the unlikeliest of places and meets enthusiastic locals who make each place special. Rosie throws herself headfirst into every situation, earning her stripes as a shepherd in Anglesey and even entering the ring under the glaring lights of a Saturday night wrestling match in Norwich.

In the heightened reality of the series, Rosie has frequent run-ins with the Channel 4 commissioner (played by Rachel Stubbings), who is too busy dealing with her celebrity contacts to give Rosie's show her full attention.

Expect cameos from a range of Channel 4 faces as Rosie and her weekly guest tear up the UK, all narrated by Oscar-winner Olivia Colman. Rosie's journey begins as she and presenter and TV personality Scarlett Moffatt explore the Lake District's history and epic beauty. They seek inspiration for their own poetry, at William Wordsworth's former home, and re-enact a Viking battle at Kendal Castle. They also manage to survive a driving course on a 100-year-old traction engine but avoid the opportunity to eat lunch cooked from the heat of the coal engine.

Rosie and Scarlett bed down with a couple of stallions when they check in at one of the most unusual hotel rooms imaginable. Settling into a bunk bed that's slap bang in the middle of a stable, they attempt a night's sleep in the company of two very friendly horses.

The pair also meet a food historian to learn about the region's ancient cuisine and run into a spot of bother with a very old and fragile sausage making machine...

The whole series will be available to stream or download for free on All 4 from 9 April, following the transmission of this episode.
