CUMBRIA will star in a TV show as a Scottish comedian explores the region for her travel show.

Viewers can tune into Channel 5 tomorrow at 8pm to watch Susan Calman as she experiences the best of Cumbria and the Lake District for her new programme 'Grand Day Out'.

The show has been excitedly received by Cumbria Tourism’s managing director, Gill Haigh, who hopes it will provide a 'scenic fix' while visitors cannot travel to the area.

“We know how much our visitors can’t wait to return to the Lake District, and the hospitality sector will welcome them with open arms once the time is right,” she said.

“In the meantime, it’s fantastic to see our county so well-represented onscreen.

“As well as offering a scenic fix for those unable to visit in person the programme showcases the huge variety of locations and attractions available for visitors to explore later in the year.

“We’re sure that many will be inspired to get outside and enjoy somewhere new alongside old favourites once they’re able to travel safely and legally.”

Starting at Ullswater alongside her trusty campervan Helen, the presenter soon finds herself experiencing Ullswater from the deck of the 19th century ‘Lady of the Lake,’ alongside Ullswater Steamers’ skipper Graeme Connacher.

She also makes a visit to Muncaster Castle- famous for its history and ghostly apparitions- to explore the grounds and castle.
