Rosie Jones hits the road again...

C4 orders more Mission: Accessible, with Ashley Storrie, Big Zuu, and Mike Wozniak

Rosie Jones is to make a second series of her Channel 4 travelogue Mission: Accessible.

This time she will be joined by Ashley Storrie, Big Zuu, and Mike Wozniak, as they explore Cambridge, Manchester and London.

The episodes will feature on the broadcaster’s social channels, before being made available on-demand via All 4 later this summer.

A first series, featuring Maisie Adam, Harriet Kemslet, Kemah Bob and James Acaster aired last November – and led to Jones fronting another UK travelogue, Trip Hazardm on the main channel (review).

Funded by Visit Britain, Mission: Accessible seeks out ‘accessible adventures around the UK’ – and almost half of the production team have disabilities.

Channel 4’s digital commissioner Laura Marks said: ‘Mission: Accessible series one was hugely popular, so we’re so pleased to be bringing it back for another series.

‘We’re so proud of the humour and heart with which Rosie approaches each activity… she really is a star talent that we love working with.

‘We know this show really resonates with our audiences and responds to the issues that many of them face when looking for the perfect staycation. Rosie challenges the conventional idea of what an accessible holiday can be and brings the audience along with her.’

It is being made by Rockerdale Studios, whose co-founder Michelle Singer hailed the disabled people working on the show. ‘Specifically, that includes director Stu Richards and host Rosie Jones,’ she said. ‘A duo that helps show that far from living up to their binary portrayal as victims or heroes, disabled people can occasionally be loud and annoying, too!’
