No sights in my travel show: Noble

Ross Noble has confessed viewers won't find scenery or attractive views in his new travel show Freewheeling.

The comedian journeyed around the country on his motorbike, taking on challenges from his Twitter followers for the new show coming to Dave in October.

Ross claimed: "Arguably it's not a travel show. Even though I travel around the country, there isn't any scenery in it and there's no tourist attractions. So I've managed to do a travel show that doesn't have anything that you would see on a travel show.

"The most you see is York Minster when I walk past it, and I went up the Crooked Spire in Chesterfield, got to the top, looked out and pointed out that you can see Toys R Us. And that's the only view in the show.

"It's all either me travelling to places, or indoors or in car parks."

And no challenge was too trivial for Ross.

He revealed: "One of my favourite ones was 'Why don't you get an infinite number of monkeys and an infinite number of typewriters and see it they can type out Shakespeare?'

"Now that person sent that in as a joke, but I then went and did it. I tracked down some monkeys, went round people's houses, asked it they had typewriters, and then ended up at a zoo with a typewriter, trying to get a monkey to type."

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
