TV presenter Alex Beresford and his father, Noel; singer Mel Blatt and her mother, Helene; McFly drummer Harry Judd and his mother, Emma; and British Racing Driver and pundit Billy Monger with his sister, Bonny, are embarking on an exciting adventure in the highly awaited Celebrity Race Across the World.
The journey kicks off in Marrakech, Morocco, the most northwestern country in Africa, and concludes in Tromsø, Norway, known as the Arctic capital. This epic expedition will cover 24 countries and traverse over 10,000 km. Their route will take them through a diverse array of landscapes and cultures in this part of the world: starting from the vibrant North African city of Marrakech, across seaside ports and beaches of the Mediterranean, through historical and cosmopolitan cities, the towering Alps, uncharted territories of Central Europe, enchanting Baltic States, and the snowy landscapes of Scandinavia.
This six-part celebrity edition of the beloved series will follow the four celebrities and their racing partners as they strive to reach a finish line thousands of miles away, all without relying on air travel or modern-day conveniences. Stripped of modern luxuries and technology, they will need to depend on their skills, wit, creativity, and hard work to succeed. With no credit cards, smartphones, or internet access and armed only with the cash equivalent of a flight to their final destination, they will have to earn extra funds along the way and seek assistance from kind-hearted strangers to progress. This remarkable journey will provide a unique glimpse into the celebrities' dynamics and relationships with their fellow travel companions.
