Len’s holidays of a lifetime

One of the most popular programmes on BBC1 is Strictly Come Dancing.

However that programme is only on during the Autumn months so what do the stars of the show do for the rest of the year?

All of them keep busy doing a variety of projects and this week the Head Judge, Len Goodman, is back with another series of his popular travel programme – Holiday of My Lifetime With Len Goodman.

This second series is longer than the first and will run each weekday at three forty five in the afternoon on BBC1 for the next five weeks. In each programme Len takes a celebrity back to a place where they went to on holiday when they were younger.

The pair of them discover in what ways the place has changed down through the years with the aid of vintage clips and comments from experts. This series is popular for a number of reasons.

It allows viewers an opportunity of seeing a number of locations from all over Britain which used to be popular holiday destinations, which then might inspire them to go on and visit these places for themselves.

The visit will also allow viewers the opportunity of learning more about the featured celebrity as he/she reminisce about that holiday of long ago. On Monday Carol Kirkwood, the weather presenter, will be paying a return visit to St. Helier in Jersey.

It was a place she visited originally in 1973. Then on Tuesday it will be the turn of Anton Du Beke, one of the Strictly dancers, to return to Blackpool, a place where he went to in 1981 in order to take part in a Dancing competition. With the likeable Len as guide, this is a programme which is very much ‘feel good television’. Ian K
