The episode of ITV’s new series of Ade in Britain, featuring TV comedy star Ade Edmondson’s trip to Louth, is set to hit our screens soon.

Ade dropped into Lakings butchers in May last year to film part of a Lincolnshire episode for the second series of the popular food show.

With his famous tiny caravan in tow, the former Bottom and The Young Ones actor along with his camera crew spent three hours at the Eastgate butchers tasting food and chatting with staff.

The second series of Ade in Britain has already started and is on ITV1 from 4pm to 5pm on week days.

This week’s episodes include the Lancashire coast, the Fens and Cumbria.

According to an ITV spokesman, the Lincolnshire episode is pencilled in for the second week of April, but that may be subject to change.

During his visit, Ade, married to Lincolnshire comedienne Jennifer Saunders, revealed to the Leader that he was a big fan of Louth.

His band, The Bad Shepherds, have recorded a number of times at Chapel Studios in South Thoresby.

2011 saw Ade front the first series of Ade in Britain, which sees him visit different counties to sample local delicacies.

He revealed during his visit to Louth that in the Lincolnshire episode he’d be cooking haslet for Lincolnshire folk singers.

After taking in the Lincoln Cathedral before visiting Louth, Ade and his crew went on to Grimsby to taste some fresh fish and Horncastle to sample the Lincolnshire Red beef.

Of the latest series, Ade said: “You may be asking why I’m driving around the country towing a little caravan behind me. Well, I want to experience and celebrate everything that’s great about Britain.

“From Cornish pasties to Kentish ales, from Morris dancing to sea shanties – I’m not saying that Britain is best, but I think it’s in the top one.”

Look out for further updates on when Louth will be featured on Ade in Britain.
