Mission: Accessible, the disability tourism-promoting series of short travelogues starring Rosie Jones, is to return for a second series with Channel 4.

Three new 15-minute episodes have been produced in English cities, following a four-part first series published between October and December 2020 on the broadcaster's YouTube channel.

The new episodes see Rosie exploring London with Big Zuu; Cambridge with Ashley Storrie; and Manchester with Mike Wozniak, and are produced in association with Visit England.

Series 1 saw her visit Brighton, Wales, Fife and the West Country, with guests including James Acaster and Harriet Kemsley, and was produced in association with the three nations' respective tourism boards. It focused on Jones and her guest exploring activities suitable and accessible for visitors with disabilities.

Michelle Singer, co-founder of production company Rockerdale Studios, said: "Rockerdale Studios is quickly evolving into a production indie that puts people with disabilities at the heart of our work - in Mission: Accessible 2, that includes nearly 50% of the folk who made the show, from exec to assistant producer, editor, and talent. Specifically, that includes director Stu Richards and host Rosie Jones, a duo that helps show that far from living up to their binary portrayal as victims or heroes, disabled people can occasionally be loud and annoying, too!"

Commissioner Laura Marks adds: "Mission: Accessible Series 1 was hugely popular, so we're so pleased to be bringing it back for another series and this time we take on some of the UK's most accessible cities. We're so proud of the humour and heart with which Rosie approaches each activity and each contributor's specific accessibility needs, she really is a star talent that we love working with. We know this show really resonates with our audiences and responds to the issues that many of them face when looking for the perfect staycation. Rosie challenges the conventional idea of what an accessible holiday can be and brings the audience along with her."

Jones's full-length Channel 4 travelogue, Trip Hazard: My Great British Adventure, aired its first series in April 2021. Four half-hour programmes featured guests including Jamali Maddix and Scarlett Moffatt.

Rosie Jones will appear on The Last Leg from the end of August as the programme's Tokyo-based correspondent for the Paralympic Games.

The first episode of Mission: Accessible saw Rosie exploring Brighton with Maisie Adam:
