Channel 5 has greenlit Motorhoming with Merton & Webster (wt), a new 6 x 60’ series which will be co-produced by Curve Media and Motion Content Group.
The series will follow comic couple Paul Merton and Suki Webster as they immerse themselves in the world of Motorhoming bringing the audience the ultimate A-Z guide to having an epic Great British Adventure, on four wheels.
With a record jump in motorhome and campervan sales in 2020, Merton and Webster will be exploring all there is to know about this increasingly popular way of travelling by hitting the road in their very own motorhome.
Brits remain the biggest buyers of Motorhomes in Europe and with so many available on the market, Merton and Webster will showcase and review the latest models, from top of the range, best buys and most popular.
On their travels they’ll be taking in the sights, tasting local delicacies, meeting fellow Motorhoming enthusiasts and sharing with us a host of surprising caravanning hacks and secrets; including how to make your caravan warmer, which loo is the comfiest, how to choose the best spot in a caravan park and how to park it, plus reviews of gadgets available.
Charlie Bunce will be serving as Exec Producer for Curve with Martin Oxley for Motion Content Group. The series was ordered by Commissioning Editor Kit Morey.
The commission comes following the recent success of Definitely’s (part of EndemolShineUK) ‘Million Pound Motorhomes’ which launched on 21st February 2021. The programme also ordered by Morey launched to an audience of 1.5 million and added 28% to its 8pm time slot.
‘Motorhoming with Merton & Webster’ (wt) will begin filming later on this year.

Commissioning Editor, Kit Morey added: “As the country begins to open up and plan for their summer holidays, what better way to explore Britain than on four wheels with a SUPER comfy King-Sized bed in the back of your motor!”
Charlie Bunce, Executive Producer, Curve Media added: “There cannot be a better way to close the lid on the last year than by hitting the road in a motorhome with Paul and Suki. It will be a chance to visit wonderful bits of Britain, and test out the very best campervanning super hacks and must have gadgets. Paul and Suki’s humour will be the perfect kickstart to the summer for Channel 5 viewers.”
