David Hasselhoff takes a roadtrip around Britain.

After showing Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills around his California haunts in Living’s two-parter The Hoff: When Scott Came to Stay, TV legend David Hasselhoff packs his bags for Britain this week when Mills returns the invitation and takes the Hoff on a road trip around the UK (living, Monday, 9pm). The former Baywatch star is accompanied on his travels by his teenage daughters Taylor-Ann and Hayley, and the six-part series sees him experience some typically British events, including a cricket match, morris dancing and the Henley Regatta. We were granted an audience with the Hoff to find out more…

Britain was the perfect holiday destination…


“I wanted to find out what The Hoff means to people in the UK. The British public have been insanely cool to me.”

I needed some time to do something different and get away from it all…


“I may be The Hoff to the outside world, but sometimes it’s great just to be David.”

I met some real characters…


“I went to play polo, thinking I was going to be surrounded by a bunch of toffs, but to me they were normal guys having a good time.”

It was good spending time with my daughters…


“Nothing can get in the way of the bond we have. It was worth the whole trip to see my children being children.”

I saw some nice British girls…


“I’m still looking for love, but my daughters don’t like me dating younger women.”

The Hoff phenomenon crept up on me…


“I don’t know what it’s about, but I just go with it. It’s hysterical. I always remember the time I was in Britain when I had a hit record and people were waiting in line for me to sign my book and they were all dressed up as my characters from Baywatch and Knight Rider.”

Baywatch was more than just boobs and bathing suits…


“It was a big, wild, fun show about saving lives.”

I get a hard time from the press…


“I have the paparazzi following me, waiting for me to fall. I’ve made mistakes, but I’ve always picked myself up.”
