Rob Brydon has revealed when fans can expect to see the new series of The Trip.

It's been over two years since Brydon and Steve Coogan were last seen on screen together – in 2017's The Trip to Spain – but the pair wrapped filming on The Trip to Greece earlier this year.

While it's unknown when exactly the show will return, Brydon – who'll appear in the Gavin & Stacey Christmas special – shed some light on a broadcast date during an interview with The Independent.

When asked when viewers can expect to see the new series, Brydon said: "Sometime in the Spring, I think."

Brydon previously teased the show with a photo alongside Coogan, captioned: “Lunch with a friend to discuss The Trip To Greece."

The Trip – co-created by Brydon, Coogan and director Michael Winterbottom – began on BBC Two in 2010. The series saw them embark on a restaurant tour of northern England.

Later outings saw them repeat the formula in Italy and Spain.  

In the series, the actors play fictional versions of themselves.

This year, Coogan reprised the character of Alan Partridge for This Time, a BBC series that was acclaimed by critics and viewers alike.

The Trip To Greece will be broadcast on Sky One and NOW TV in Spring 2020. Gavin & Stacey returns for a one-off special on Christmas Day on BBC One.
