Micky Flanagan is undertaking an epic bike ride for a new Sky 1 series.

The four-part documentary, which has the working title Micky Flanagan Hits the Road, sees cameras follow the East London comedian as he embarks on a trip around France taking in vineyards, landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and even nudist camps.

The former Billingsgate fish porter will be joined on his adventure by Noel Lynch, a brickie and keen cyclist, who has been friends with Micky for 15 years.

“Life is a journey. I like journeys. Even French ones. This will be a journey of physical and mental obstacles and I will overcome them all…once I’ve bought the bike,” says Micky.

Micky Flanagan Hits the Road will screen later this year.
