Paul Whitehouse in Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing for BBC Two

Paul Whitehouse returns to our screens in Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing for BBC Two.

The brand-new six-part series will see Paul and fellow comic and friend, Bob Mortimer, venture up and down the country in search of different fish species.

Across each half-hour episode, Paul and Bob discuss everything from recipes, regrets, relationships and rituals; to childhood, comedy and the countryside, alongside the ever-present shadows of showbiz and mortality.

David Brindley, Head of Popular Factual at the BBC, said: "Frankly, it's a joy to be working with two of the country's finest comedians. I'm delighted Paul and Bob have allowed us to follow this very intimate fishing expedition and eavesdrop on their frank, moving, and of course, entertaining musings."

Tune in to the first episode of this six-part series on Wednesday 20th June on BBC2 at 10pm.
