Joined by actor Kevin Whately, the pair reflected on their weekend which included a full itinerary – a get together with the Alnmouth Community Rowing Club with a mind, body and soul boot camp, enjoying a 99 ice cream on the beach, Border Pipe playing in Tughall and making holiday souvenirs from wax with Notes of Northumberland.

The 48 hours spent in Northumberland was transformed into a piece of sand art.

Speaking about her time with the famous pair, Claire said: “We all loved Series one of Robson Green’s Weekend Escapes and to be invited to take part in series two was such a wonderful surprise!

He commented: “I am delighted that my Weekend Escapes is coming back for a second series.

"The response from the first, and especially up in the North East was fantastic. It is so important to know what’s on your doorstep and explore your local area in times when you could be feeling burnt out, so I’m excited to take viewers around the North East again with my family and celeb friends – I can’t wait!

"Not only do I get to showcase a region I adore and its people, I’m also able to showcase the talent that exists in the area both in-front of and behind the lens. We also provide a training ground for those who aspire to work within this wonderful industry.”
