Matt Baker: Travels with Mum and Dad starts this week

What is Matt Baker: Travels with Mum & Dad about?

As explained on Matt's social media, Travels with Mum and Dad will see the presenter joined by Janice and Mike as they road trip around areas in the north east.

In his video, Matt divulged more on what audiences can expect. "We are literally travelling around the north east, having a whale of a time," he said. We've got dad's caravan up and running - it's hit the road – and we've been having a great time. We've been to four places, dad can you remember?"

Mike then interjected: "Bamborough Castle", as Janice added: "Beamish!" as Matt then added: "Then Durham cathedral and the fourth one is, Hexham races! We've been having an absolute ball […] in our beloved north east. We hope you enjoy watching it."

Who are Matt Baker's parents?

Mike, 78, and Janice, 66, have been key in Matt and Nicola's move to the farm in the Dales which they moved to soon before the coronavirus pandemic.

 Janice and Mike have lived on the farm in the north east of England for a number of years, so were more than well equipped to help their son in his move. But, soon after Matt left The One Show, his mother Janice was involved in an accident, breaking her leg in the process.

This partly prompted their move, as Mike was the only one to work on the farm. Matt told iNews: "It was one of those scenarios when you automatically go into rescue mode, so we downed tools, went up there and from day one, it was all hands on deck.

"We live a life that's up and down the whole time anyway – I am a northerner through and through and the Durham Dales, where I grew up, are like a magnet; I can’t stay away."
