Gregg Wallace is one of the most recognisable faces on British telly.
From shows such as MasterChef, Inside The Factory and Eat Well For Less?, we know the Londoner, 56, for his enthusiastic, expressive presenting style, and an almost-constant cheeky grin.
But now that the star has turned his hand to hosting a travel series – in which he showcases his interest in history, art, and architecture (as well as food) – it’s a chance to “get closer to the real Gregg”, he says.
In the four episodes of Channel 5’s Big Weekends With Gregg Wallace, the former greengrocer experiences Barcelona, Rome, Berlin and Amsterdam, immersing himself in the local culture.
And, especially with lockdown continuing to keep us on home soil, it’s a lot of fun to live vicariously through his adventures.
