Breaking Dad returned to ITV on Tuesday night and it's safe to say viewers were over the moon to see Bradley and Barney Walsh back on their screens. 

The new series follows the pair as they embark on another epic adventure - this time in Latin America. The opening two episodes saw the father-son duo travel to Mexico, where they got involved in Lucha Libre wrestling, paid a visit to the eerie Island of The Dolls and joined the cast of Cirque Du Soleil.

It was Bradley and Barney's mountain swing that caught the attention of viewers, however. The pair were required to climb the side of a mountain, which was approximately the size of "32 big Bens" before swinging across the top to the other side.  

Bradley wasn't too keen on the idea initially, telling the cameras: "I've now got a headache, I can't tell you. I've got a headache like I can't believe."

After watching his son complete the swing with ease, he decided to take the plunge himself.
