MORTIMER AND WHITEHOUSE: GONE FISHING COMMISSIONED FOR FOURTH SERIES

“The fish of the UK needn’t worry too much as Bob and I return for another series,” says Paul Whitehouse

ANGLERS and non-anglers alike will this week be celebrating the news that the incredibly popular Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing has been commissioned for a fourth series by the BBC.

With an impressive average audience of 1.8 million during the most recent run of programmes, which ended last Sunday, it’s little surprise that the pair have been given the green light to film another set of six episodes covering their fishing adventures around the British Isles. It’s hoped to air in autumn 2021.

The format will remain unchanged, and the show will follow the two lifelong friends as they endeavour to catch new species of fish from a host of stunning new venues.

A delighted Bob told Angling Times:

“I love doing this show and am over the moon to get the chance to go fishing with Paul again. I am already working on heart healthy recipes to cook and new ways to irritate him.”

Paul added:

“The fish of the UK needn’t worry too much as Bob and I return for another series. I love Bob and he needs me more than ever, so we’re back on the bank for more high jinks and another series basking in the timeless wonder of the glorious British countryside.”
