Paul O'Grady's new ITV series about Kent, 'Paul O'Grady's Great British Escape' continues this evening and Paul will be venturing into White Cliffs Country, embracing excitement on water and discovering hidden gems along the coastline.
Paul O'Grady's Great British Escape: Kent
In tonight's show, Paul sets out from Dover Harbour on an exhilarating speedboat ride, during which he witnesses wartime tunnels, uncovers long lost shipwrecks and experiences an emotional wildlife encounter with a colony of seals in their natural environment.
Paul's adventures in White Cliffs Country later continue on land with an expedition along the cliff edges and into the rockpools along the shoreline, exploring and sampling edible coastal flora with professional forager Lucia Stuart.
The TV show's first episode saw Paul take to Kent's skies in a 1935 Tiger Moth plane, previously used for training pilots in the war. Taking in the view as he soared above the chalky white cliffs for which Dover is so famous, Paul said: "When you see the White Cliffs Of Dover and you think, this is the first thing the pilots saw when they were flying back from a mission in France, they must have breathed a sigh of relief. It makes you sort of proud."
The six-part series highlights the many beautiful aspects of Kent, which has been home to Paul for twenty years and of which he speaks very highly.
