Along the way, they will once again be joined by experts to guide and introduce them to their vocations and the boys will share their unique views with the likes of Alan Carr, Andy Murray, Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and Michelle Visage.

Jamie, Freddie and Romesh have also been getting into the Christmas spirit in recent weeks as they filmed the A League of Their Own: Christmas Party 2020 at Englefield House in Berkshire. This festive edition of the show, premiering on Sky on December 17, will see them take a look back at old clips from the show and be joined by James Corden who’ll be dialling in from across the pond. Viewers are also in for a real treat as ‘H’ from Steps guides the guys through putting together a truly unique version of Feliz Navidad.
Phil Edgar-Jones, Director, Sky Arts and Head of Entertainment said: “If ever we needed a laugh, it’s right now, and as 2020 fades away we are delighted that the brilliant teams who make ALOTO Road trip and Rob & Romesh vs are able to safely traverse the length and breadth of Britain to bring us these comedy gems. 2020 can do one, bring on 2021.”
