What does Barney Walsh do for a living? Bradley Walsh's son career explored!

Breaking Dad aired its first series in 2019, featuring dad and son duo, Bradley and Barney Walsh, and the series is back for a third season in 2021.

The 2019 show took the duo off to America to star in a four-part series, where Barney takes his dad over to the USA for a travel series with a twist. While Bradley is hoping for a relaxing holiday his son makes him take part in a number of challenges, some even as dangerous as diving with sharks!

As the first and second seasons were so popular, ITV brought the third series in early January, 2021. The first episode aired on January 11th, 2021 and new episodes air on Monday evenings at 8 pm on ITV.

But one question that many viewers have been wondering about is exactly what Barney Walsh’s job is outside of the series.
