Further details

The journey begins and ends - where else!? - at Ricky's hometown of Liverpool - but they're quickly on the road on the first leg of their trip, heading to some real Lancashire hot-spots...

The first stop is Ricky's birthplace, Blackpool, for hi-jinks at some of the best-loved attractions in the town they call the Vegas of the North. The pair also catch up with Ricky's old pal, veteran comic Mick Miller, for the low-down on the entertainment and comedy scene in the north's favourite seaside resort.

This week's journey also takes them to Preston, where they visit a soccer school with a difference, before setting off for the great outdoors in the breath-taking Ribble valley, where they sample the fare at an eatery voted the UK's best dining pub - and see how typical northern entrepreneurial spirit has revived a derelict mill into a thriving community hub and business.
