comedyHe's normally full of respect for Britain's ancient traditions.

But here’s Michael Whitehall in drag as The Queen in the new series of Jack Whitehall's Travels With My Father.

Netflix has today revealed a trailer for the new, fourth, season, and announced it will land on September 22.

Shot during Whitehall Jr’s stand-up tour down under earlier this year, the father and son's itinerary included a visit to an emu farm, handling snakes in the Outback, a visit a nudist beach - and the drag performance in Sydney.

Jack told the Nine Network’s Today show at the time of the filming: 'I tricked him onto a nudist beach on Byron Bay, which he didn't like, it was amazing. I just left him there and the nudists just slowly swarmed …

'We did drag in Sydney… which was amazing. He would only do it as the Queen. I wanted him to go full drag, I had his drag name, he was going to be called Rachel Prejudice. I had the dress picked out but he was like: "I'm only doing it as the Queen". We had this amazing night in Sydney where we did a drag act together.’

In the first series of Travels with My Father, released in 2017, the Whitehalls visited Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. The second series, broadcast the following year, followed them across Eastern Europe, while the third, released in September last year, took in their trip to California and Arizona – but comprised only two episodes.
