Breaking Dad aired its first series in 2019, featuring dad and son duo, Bradley and Barney Walsh.

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 season of the show was so popular, a second series launches at the very start of 2020. The first episode aired on January 8th 2020 with episode 2 clocking in today (January 15th 2020) at 8 pm on ITV.
