Bradley looks to be in talks with ITV bosses about making the second series of his father son travel documentary, Breaking Dad, a lot tougher. If you’ve not watched the series before, Breaking Dad sees Bradley and his son Barney hit the road across America to do all sorts of challenges.

For the second series, 58-year-old Bradley and his 21-year-old son Barney are hoping that the show will push them to their limits for more extreme viewing.

An insider told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "The show has been a huge success and bosses would love to do a second series.

"It's got a great feel about it and they would love to see him take on even tougher and more extreme challenges in a new series."

This comes after The Chase host recently revealed that one of the activities in an episode to come made him and his son "ill for a couple of days".

He said: "I don't wanna spoil it because it's in a later episode but there was one point that I thought I'd taken it too far.

"I had to do the activity first and I was like, 'Wow, this is tough.' It actually made us ill for a couple of days didn't it? It actually made us ill."

Bradley recalled to The Sun newspaper's TV column: "I was with Chris having lunch last year and he said: 'Brad, I want you to do a job.'

"I said: 'Sure, what?' He said: 'I can't tell. It's very, very secret. But you are the man for the job. It's in Cardiff and will be a nine-month shoot.'

"I had another meeting and he said: 'It is 'Doctor Who' -- not for the Doctor, though. We are going to change it around.' I said: 'Who is going to be the Doctor?' He said: 'We can't tell.'

"So I said: 'I can't accept.' 

"He said: 'But we want you. It will be an unbelievable journey. It will be ground-breaking. We are going to go for it. The BBC have trusted us.' So I'm in. A leap of faith."

The new series of the popular sci-fi show is set to be aired on Sundays instead of Saturdays and the first episode is titled The Woman Who Fell To Earth.

Chris said: "New Doctor, new home! Jodie Whittaker's Doctor is about to burst into Sunday nights - and make the end of the weekend so much more exciting.

"Get everybody's homework done, sort out your Monday clothes, then grab some special Sunday night popcorn, and settle down with all of the family for Sunday night adventures across space and time.

"Also, move the sofa away from the wall so parents can hide behind it during the scary bits. The Thirteenth Doctor is falling from the sky and it's going to be a blast."
