Scots comedian Susan Calman is taken back to her Strictly days in her latest TV appearance.
The first episode of series two of Secret Scotland with Susan Calman, which airs tonight on Channel 5, takes the 45-year-old to Balmoral for a ceilidh lesson in the Queen’s Ballroom.
Susan, who presented the BBC’s Hogmanay coverage earlier this week, is shown by experts how to dance the perfect Gay Gordons.
On her visit, Susan also gets an exclusive behind the scenes look at one of the Royal Family’s grandest homes, with particular insight into Queen Victoria’s time there during extended visits following the death of husband Prince Albert.
Elsewhere in episode one, Susan explores the area’s most iconic sights to discover hidden riches and surprising secrets for an exclusive flavour of the Highlands.
She travels to the home of The Braemar Highland Games, where she is taught the techniques of a good hammer throw by a three-time champion, and visits a special shortbread factory to do some taste testing.
In an action-packed episode, Susan also drives the world’s oldest steam wagon and visits a castle that is pretty in pink.
She designs her own street tag with a surprising group of street artists and tries to learn to love Scotland’s most famous export, whisky.
She ends her journey getting up close to an animal thought to be Britain’s rarest mammal, now only found in the Scottish Highlands – the Wildcat.
Susan will explore five further areas in the series, which was recommissioned after a successful first outing last year.
Susan said: “I was delighted with the response to the first series and I am so excited to get back on the road to show Channel 5 viewers what else this beautiful country has to offer.”
