Brydon confirmed the news on twitter with the comedian announcing, “The Trip is returning, this time to Spain via Sky Atlantic. Shooting in the Autumn. Hurrah!” He later responded to a fan who asked if the new series would follow the same format, by joking, ‘Same format? Same jokes!’

The series, which sees Coogan and Brydon play fictionalised versions of themselves, will once again be directed by Michael Winterbottom. Speaking about the new series Coogan said: ”Having thought long and hard about yet another sojourn into culinary distractions and middle age, I have reluctantly agreed to Y viva Espana.”

“I have a hole in my diary, there will be free food and accommodation and Rob Brydon is surprisingly good company. I also like Michael.”

Winterbottom added: “It has been more than three years since the last 'Trip', and travelling with Rob and Steve is always enjoyable – so it seemed like a good idea to go on another journey together – before they get too old.”
