BBC Two open the doors to their coastal B&B

Best on the Box choice for Easter Monday…


Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Causeway Coast, the series follows fifteen celebrities as they are whisked away from their hectic everyday life to a tranquil B&B to explore the local area, discover its history, help the B&B team, and enjoy a restorative break for the body, mind and soul.

They are welcomed by host Sharon McIlveen, Michelin-star chef Alex Greene, gardener Mary Anne Farenden, and Rory O’Kane, the B&B driver who has extensive knowledge of the local area. With their help, the celebrities seek out the best homegrown produce, enjoy local activities such as paddle-boarding and horse riding, and even learn new skills.

Emma-Rosa Dias, Executive Producer of the series:

“It’s an absolute honour to showcase our part of the world. Filmed on the beautiful Northern Ireland coastline, the stunning landscape and warm culture within the cast and crew gave the show a true sense of genuine local positivity, which is reflected on screen. All our celebrity guests rolled-up their sleeves and came together with local suppliers to foster a truly warm, family feeling while really opening up and sharing why being by the sea was so important to them.”

In the first episode this evening Deborah Meaden checks-in. The Dragon’s Den investor and queen of deals faces a challenge in the B&B kitchen to see if she can cook her first-ever meal. Can this dragon take the heat?

Others names across the remaining fourteen episodes include Gloria Hunniford, Adam Woodyatt, Cerys Matthews, Shirley Ballas, Larry Lamb, Nina Wadia, Linford Christie, Larry Lamb and the lovely Debbie McGee.

On their search for fresh ingredients, the guests, together with Sharon and Alex, visit local businesses, including a wagyu beef farm, the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world and a local honey producer who uses wildflowers grown on the coastline to flavour his honey.

Apart from the exciting activities and places to visit, the celebrity guests take time to unwind and absorb the beautiful nature around them as they reflect on their wellbeing, challenging times in their lives and offer a peak behind the scenes of their successful careers.
