NEWS: Bob Mortimer and Paul White to return for more 'Gone Fishing.'

The BBC has confirmed they've ordered a third series of Gone Fishing with Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer.

Over the summer, Gone Fishing once again charmed the nation with consolidated audiences of 2.2 million tuning in to see lifelong friends and comedic royalty, Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse return to the riverbanks.

Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two said: “When Paul and Bob first came to see us three years ago with the idea of making a series about fishing, we couldn’t have imagined their daft idea would become one of the most loved shows on TV.  Brimming with friendship, care, beauty, escape and a bit of fishing, it’s a show we are so proud of on BBC Two.”

Executive Produced by Lisa Clark, the next six, half-hour episodes explore more of the UK’s finest fishing spots across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Lisa said: “With Bob and Paul we capture something very special. Genuine, authentic conversation. Much has been said about the magic of the series and all I can add is that making the series is unlike any other programme I’ve worked on. Bob and Paul are a sheer joy to work with and I’m delighted we’re returning to eavesdrop on their riverbank conversations in some of the most beautiful locations in the British countryside.”
