To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee which marks her 70-year reign, Dame Darcy Bussell sets out on a royal adventure following in the footsteps of the Queen. 

Her journey will see her travel across the landscapes of Britain and visit the locations which have shaped the monarch’s identity. 

In each of the four episodes, Dame Bussell will travel to a certain region of the country, from London to the Highlands of Scotland, from the Norfolk Broads to the Welsh Borders. 

Dame Bussell wants to discover the parts of Britain the Queen loves the most and why.

Walter Presents is also bringing back successful Spanish prison drama Locked Up.

The first series proved popular last year, with Walter Iuzzolino of Walter Presents telling the RTS that the day after the show launched online, “something like 11 000 people had already burned through the entire [series]”

The show, he said, “is “really different. It’s really Hispanic. It’s very technicolour. It’s fun. It’s very sweaty. It is Spanish exuberance!”
