Josh Widdicombe (below) and Nish Kumar are about to leap into the unique and often sensational world of local news with this six-part series following the comical duo's journey into the heart of grass roots Britain.

The two budding journalists venture to the Northeast for their first set of dispatches, this week for the Blackpool Gazette.

Josh and Nish’s first job is to hit the seafront and get the views of locals, before meeting a local strongman who is setting a world record for lifting a beer keg with his eye sockets.

Steam train enthusiast Josh is keen on reporting on a historic railway line, but gets a nasty surprise when Nish chooses to cover a sea survival training course - not great for Widdicombe as he can’t swim.

And finally, their journalism experience is thrown into a spin by the arrival of then British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to Blackpool.
