When was Grand Day Out s2 filmed?

The second series of Susan Calman’s Grand Day Out was filmed in April.

Susan and the production team continued to film until August 2021, meaning the show takes a good three months to document!

The comedian travelled around Great Britain in her campervan during filming, but on one day, she had a panic attack after an abseil.

She wrote on Instagram:

Panic attack at the top, collapsed at the bottom. Did it though. I’d do anything for my camper van, Helen Mirren. Series 2 of #GrandDayOut is go!

Fans said she was “very brave” for taking on her recent challenges.

Susan also enjoys a peaceful pedalo trip on the River Avon, before heading to historic Stratford-upon-Avon, where Shakespeare was born.

She makes a trip to Scotland during this series, as well as coastal Cornwall. And of course, Norfolk Broads was her first visit.

The Channel 5 host also pays a visit to Wales mountain Yr Wyddfa.
