The first series saw four pairs of stars and one of their relatives compete to get from Africa to the Arctic without the use of phones or flights.

The journey took place over road, rail and sea across 24 countries, featuring McFly drummer Harry Judd and his mum, Emma, and weatherman Alex Beresford with his dad, Noel. Alex and Noel won the contest by just four minutes, while Emma succeeded in winning fans’ hearts.

Race Across The World, the show’s original format featuring members of the public, first aired in 2019.

Beresford will be joined by his dad Noel, while Judd will team up with his mum Emma. Singer Mel Blatt will also be taking part with her mum Helene, and British Racing Driver Billy Monger with his sister Bonny.

Hot on the heels of the emotional roller-coaster that was series three, the celebs will be taking on the same epic challenge but racing a different route.

This time they will start in Marrakech, Morocco, the most north-western country in Africa, and end in the Arctic capital of Tromsø, Norway, in a journey that spans 24 countries and over 10,000km.
