Comedian, actress and author Rosie Jones will star in three new Channel 4 commissions.
The entertainment travelogue series Trip Hazard will return for a second series, with Jones being joined by more famous companions to explore the unlikeliest of destinations and experience the unusual, quirky, and bizarre activities on offer at each location. The supersized series will offer longer episodes packed with Rosie and her celebrity friends creating mischief and getting stuck in with the locals.
For her work presenting the first series of Trip Hazard, Jones has received a nomination in the Entertainment Performance category at the RTS Programme Awards 2022.
In a one-off, as yet untitled, documentary made by Twofour, Jones will use the appalling abuse she receives on social media as a starting point to investigate society’s attitudes towards disabled people. Looking particularly at the specifics of language used towards disabled people, Jones will investigate how widespread the problem is.
The comedian will meet other people who receive targeted abuse for being disabled, as well as those campaigning for change. Approaching the documentary with her inimitable humour and love for life, Jones will be recruiting her friends from the world of comedy to help raise awareness of the problem.
Rosie will also host an all-new comedy, chat and cooking digital series called Dine Hard offering great chat, mediocre food and very few culinary-related trips to A&E with her famous friends.
Rosie Jones said: "It gives me immense pleasure to be heading up not one, not two, but THREE Channel 4 shows! How lucky am I?! In my opinion, Channel 4 has always been the pioneer channel when it comes to championing and celebrating diversity, and showcasing different, important stories. All three of these shows do just that. Oh, do I have a brilliantly busy year ahead!"
Phil Harris, Head of Entertainment and Events at Channel 4, added: “Rosie Jones is a brilliant talent and we absolutely love working with her. We’re over the moon viewers will get to see more of the Rosie they love in Trip Hazard, as well as a different side to her in the documentary which looks at a massively important issue that is incredibly close to Rosie’s heart.”
