Series 1's route was London to Singapore, so that's a lot of distance to travel, especially when things are really unsettled.

"It's no secret that everyone's struggling with the pandemic," Harcourt told Digital Spy and press following the show's BAFTA win for Reality and Constructed Factual at the Virgin Media Television BAFTAs last night (July 31).

"We have got some fantastic routes planned, but it will be limited, of course, by what happens with COVID, so we're just waiting, but we're ready to go.

Coronavirus is a great leveller as people all over the world find themselves in a similar situation – falling sick, suffering economic consequences and feeling uncertain about the future . Yet, some countries have been hit harder than others. Why so?

Travelling anywhere at the moment is difficult, especially with social distancing and local lockdowns being enforced as governments see spikes in cases of coronavirus, so it will be interesting to see how the show works around this.
