More intrepid retired celebrities, including Stephanie Beacham, Susan George, Syd Little, Bob Champion, Peter Dean and Krankies Ian and Janette Tough, head to India for adventure
Nine celebrities of a certain age check into The Real Marigold Hotel for a third series of the silver surfer show.
But it’s not long before some of them are struggling with the size of the ants, the scary tuk-tuks or – as in Bob’s case – the Indian food!
Meanwhile, Stephanie bursts into tears during a meditation session in an Ashram, and Syd goes green when he sees a chicken being killed for their supper.
‘I found it profoundly moving and had a little cry during the meditation,’ says Stephanie. ‘I seemed to spend the whole time in India either laughing or crying, the emotions were very extreme. I can only imagine what I looked like at the ashram, though, because it was a very scrubbed experience!’
Fun viewing, but as ever the real star of the show is India.
