John Bishop's Australian adventure

New travelogue for the BBC

John Bishop has got on his bike to film a BBC One travelogue show about Australia.

The three-part series, entitled John Bishop's Australia Recycled, was shot down under over six weeks earlier this year.

It marks his return to the country he visited in 1992, when he was 25, when he flew out and cycled back to Britain, raising money for charity. The journey formed the basis for his second ever Fringe show, back in 2004.

In 2012, Bishop was again on his bike – cycling 185 miles from Paris to Calais as the first leg of a gruelling Comic Relief journey back to London.

Bishop flew back from filming Australia Recycled in time for the GQ comedy extravaganza at the Hammersmith Apollo last month, when he shared stories of visiting a remote sheep station as part of his travels.

The programme will be made by his company, Lola Productions, which he co-owns with his manager Lisa Thomas. There are no details yet about when the show will air.
