Channel 4 has commissioned a new documentary series following the adventures of Benidorm star Johnny Vegas and his assistant Beverly Dixon as they attempt to create the ultimate holiday camping site.
Llas Vegas (w/t) will see the duo source five single-story vintage buses and renovate them for a glamping site in North Wales.
With no previous business experience, Vegas and Dixon will be pushed to their limits to get the glamping site ready for the summer season, especially as neither have conducted renovations of this scale before.
“I bought a bus online. Not because it’s what showbiz folk do, but because my camping van got nicked and it had been my wee bit of creative space heaven,” commented Vegas.
“I’m suddenly, finally trying to turn a “What if?” into a “Well why not?”. Borrowing cash, sorting out red tape via Bev and taking a risk on the fact that other folk will want to spend time in a place that feels special. But I get it. As no doubt the bank manager might say, I’m not the most organised person, but I tend to invest in passion. (Ooh, get him!).”
The four-part series will be produced by Plum Pictures for Channel 4 and executive produced by Will Daws (George Clarke's Amazing Spaces).
Jonathan Rothery, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor added: “This is Johnny as we’ve never seen him before, following a dream to create the ultimate glamping site, from inception to realisation.”
Llas Vegas (w/t) is expected to air in 2019 and you can see Johnny Vegas on The Great Celebrity Bake Off for SU2C which continues on Tuesdays at 8:00pm on Channel 4.
