TV executives are hoping to make another season of the travel documentary - which follows the 58-year-old actor and his 21-year-old son Barney hitting the road together across America - even more "extreme" and gruelling in a bid to trump the hugely popular current series.

An insider told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "The show has been a huge success and bosses would love to do a second series.

"It's got a great feel about it and they would love to see him take on even tougher and more extreme challenges in a new series."

This comes after 'The Chase' host recently revealed that one of the activities in an episode to come made him and his son "ill for a couple of days".

He said: "I don't wanna spoil it because it's in a later episode but there was one point that I thought I'd taken it too far.

"I had to do the activity first and I was like, 'Wow, this is tough.' It actually made us ill for a couple of days didn't it? It actually made us ill."

The concept behind the show was to send the father-and-son pair on a journey to take on new experiences and enhance their relationship.

Their 2,000-mile road trip sees Bradley and Barney heading across the Mojave Desert.

Travelling from Los Angeles to New Orleans, the duo are pushed to the limits and face driving tasks, cowboy training, alligator feeding and skydiving.
