Following the success of the first series, which aired earlier this year, the new series will see a whole new batch of comedy pairings set off on a daring journey to navigate some of the most treacherous roads around the world.
Some of the comedy pairings taking on World's Most Dangerous Roads in series two include Jamali Maddix and Larry Dean who head to the dramatic landscapes of Bhutan, Rhod Gilbert and Angela Barnes take on the Italian Alps, and Mike Wozniak and Ola Labib drive into the Namibian wilderness.
Slovenia will see David Harewood and Fraser James tackle its dangerous roads whilst Olga Koch and Thanyia Moore venture into the diverse terrain of Bulgaria. Seann Walsh and Joe Swash explore Guatemala’s not so safe turf.
Jeff Stelling and Chris Kamara set out on a thrillingly scenic journey to Sri Lanka and Desiree Burch and Jessica Fostekew travel on Colorado’s notoriously dangerous ground.
The first series reached an average audience of 654k individuals per episode, peaking with 848k individuals for Joe Wilkinson and Zoe Lyon’s off-road adventure. Across all outings on Dave to date, World’s Most Dangerous Roads series one has reached over 4.1m individuals.
UKTV's Hilary Rosen said, “I’m delighted to be working with Ricochet to bring World’s Most Dangerous Roads back for a second time. This series will continue to deliver heart stopping moments, set against spectacular landscapes as our often terrified celebrities battle some of the world’s toughest roads..
