Mark Wright and his family are embarking on a road trip across Britain for a new six-part TV series.

The 36-year-old star will be joined by his brother Josh and his dad Mark as they film 'A Wright Family Holiday', which will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer from June 8.

Mark said: "From everything I’ve done since I started my career, this is by far the most special to me. Embarking on a journey full of life-changing experiences with my two best mates.

"It’s time we needed together to smile and have fun again after what the last two years threw at us as a family.

"Like many other families, it’s been tough times emotionally, so I hope I can bring others along with us on this fun-packed adrenaline series and encourage them to do the same. Quality time and making memories with your family is priceless."

The trio will take on a number of adventures throughout the series, including hang gliding in the Peak District and skydiving in Skegness.

During their journey, they each open up about their own life struggles, including their mental health battles, the demands of parenting and the pressures of fame.

Meanwhile, Ruth Kelly, the director of programmes at Twenty Twenty Production, has described the show as an "action-packed adventure".

She said: "Twenty Twenty is delighted to unleash Mark Wright, his dad Mark Snr and little brother Josh onto the nation’s screens in 'A Wright Family Holiday'.

"For anyone who has ever argued over a sat-nav on a family holiday, this series is for you. Full of nostalgia, hilarious family bants, action-packed adventure, and the most beautiful locations Britain has to offer, this is Mark Wright as you’ve never seen him before."
