Adrian Edmondson’s (69-75) latest solo project is a six-part TV series called ‘Ade at Sea’.
Adrian fell in love with the sea about 30 years ago when he got his first boat. The presenter once owned what he describes as an “unsinkable 16ft dinghy” which he used to sail all the way up and down the south coast. The new series sees him set sail to explore Britain’s maritime past and discover how it continues to influence the lives of people who still depend on the sea today.
One of the episodes sees Adrian being rescued from the North Sea off the coast of Bridlington by an RNLI helicopter, a moment he describes as being one of the highlights of filming. Catch the remainder of the series on Thursdays at 8.30pm on ITV1.
In the meantime, next on the agenda is a tour to Australia from 11-26 April with his band The Bad Shepherds. The band will be playing in Sydney, Katoomba, Cronulla, Brisbane, Melbourne, Castlemaine, Oakleigh, Adelaide, Fremantle and Perth for any OPs over in Australia who fancy going along to one of the concerts.
