Fans can also look forward to a potential spin-off travel show that the Strawbridge's have been planning for some time.

Responding to a viewer who asked if they would consider making a separate series which follows the family of four on their travels, the couple wrote on their website: "We have actually been planning a travel show for a while…unfortunately lockdown has meant that we have had to put this on the backburner…but it’s definitely something we are looking to do in the future, so watch this space!"
