The 42-year-old star had flown out to Guatemala with comedian Seann Walsh for his new show on Dave - which will air Sunday 25 February - and upon arriving in the South American country admitted he was "nervous" about falling ill to begin with but ended up sicker than he could have imagined after just two days.

He told The Sun newspaper's TVBiz column: "I was most nervous about getting food poisoning. The doctors said make sure you don’t drink the water because you’re going to get sick.

"And within two days, it got me. I wasn’t sick, it was more, you can imagine, you know?"

The former 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' winner - who is married to 'Loose Women' star Stacey Solomon - had to do all the driving in Guatemala because of a restriction on Seann's license but quipped it would have been fun to have his wife by his side for the TV show.

He said: "We’d have had a great time. Stacey’s a very good driver.”

'World’s Most Dangerous Roads' is produced by Ricochet, commissioned for UKTV by Hilary Rosen, director of commissioning, and ordered for Dave by Cherie Cunningham, channel director.

'World’s Most Dangerous Roads 'is executive produced by Natalie Wilkinson and Hannah Lamb, and the series producer is Sean McDonnell.

Hilary Rosen said: “I’m delighted to be working with Ricochet to bring 'World’s Most Dangerous Roads' back for a second time.

"This series will continue to deliver heart stopping moments, set against spectacular landscapes as our often terrified celebrities battle some of the world’s toughest roads. It also provides revealing insights into their real world friendships while they undertake the adventure of a lifetime.”
