Banijay UK prodco Definitely has been commissioned to produce a new non-fiction series, Million Pound Motorhomes, for Channel 5.
The broadcaster has greenlit a 4 x 60-minute series about the world’s most expensive and luxurious motorhomes, based on the success of the one-off special Million Pound Motorhomes, which performed strongly for Channel 5 earlier this year, particularly with younger viewers.
The Million Pound Motorhomes series will feature celebrities like James Martin, Ricky Tomlinson, Rustie Lee and Dominic Littlewood showing off their specially-made campers while also giving viewers a look at the companies who build, renovate and rent out the impressive vehicles.
Million Pound Motorhomes was commissioned by Kit Morey. The series will be produced by Kerry Allison and executive produced by Rachel Arnold and Jon Green. The show is expected to premiere on Channel 5 later in September.
“We are delighted to be climbing back on board our Million Pound Motorhomes. With more staycationing than ever, we Brits are becoming motorhome obsessed, so we couldn’t be more excited to hit the road in some truly jaw-dropping holiday homes on wheels,” said Rachel Arnold, Definitely’s creative director, in a release.
Added Morey, commissioning editor at Channel 5: “Putting your home on four wheels and exploring the country is now more popular than ever and after the huge success of the first series it was a no-brainer to get behind the wheel again. I’m looking forward to working with the brilliant team at Definitely to bring our viewers even more Motorhoming magic.”
