Further details

Tour guide Johnny Vegas jets off for a whistle-stop guide to holidays. Top comics and celebrities share everything they love and hate about their hard-earned summer breaks, covering everything from packing their bags to cacking their pants.

Is it possible to enjoy a British holiday by sitting on a windswept beach in the rain? Do we prefer our holidays at home or away? Does anyone really like camping? And has anyone ever survived a trip overseas without getting the trots?

Who turned their hotel corridor into the world's longest indoor slip-n-slide? Who left their chicken fillets floating in the pool in Marbella? And who ended up paragliding naked along a Spanish beachfront? 'The Funny Thing About... Holidays' offers the answer to all of these questions and more.
