Four brand new episodes and a Christmas special of ‘One Night In’ will see Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe joined by guests in each show as they spend the night at some of the UK’s most exciting attractions with no other visitors around.

The five new episodes will see The Last Leg pals Josh and Alex joined by comedian friends as they spend a night alone at some of Britain’s best-known tourist attractions: a theme park, a museum, a zoo, a historic landmark and a department store.

Last Christmas’s special of ‘One Night In…Hamleys‘, which stared Tom Allen, Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan had a massive 2.7 million viewers and was one of the channel’s highest ratings of a new title in 2021.

Ruth Phillips, Exec Producer, Zeppotron said, “We can’t wait to let Alex, Josh and friends loose in some thoroughly exciting but empty, iconic locations, allowing them to roam free and muck about through the wee small hours without grown-ups interfering. It promises to be a gleeful, escapist and above all funny show as the cast become the equivalent of mischievous kids in a sweet shop, who’ve overdone the sherbert dip dabs .”

Channel 4’s Steve Handley, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment adds: “I’m thrilled that we are going to explore some more of the UK’s most iconic venues with Josh and Alex at the helm. Viewers will be invited to a charming peek at what we never normally see of famous British attractions and Josh and Alex’s friendship.”

‘One Night In…’ will air on Channel 4 later this year, with special guests to be announced and we will update as soon as these have been confirmed.

Channel 4 also announced the festive edition of Matt Baker: Our Farm In The Dales and Terry Pratchett’s The Abominable Snow Baby for Christmas and we can’t wait!
