Charley Boorman, preparing for his next trip

Following the success of his various TV programmes, both with and without Ewan 'Put it away' McGregor, the BBC have green-lit his latest TV show, From London to Regency England by Any Means.

In it, the intrepid grower of beards and rider of vehicles has to venture through time and space, from London to Regency England.

'I have never done anything like this before' says Boorman in his typically over-enthusiastic way 'I have travelled over land, but I have never travelled through time before'

We spoke to famed Time Machine Inventor Dr Emmet Brown, who had some success sending a teenager back in time in the 1980's. 'Yes, it would be possible. He could start in London, find a stretch of road where he could drive at 88 miles an hour. Of course, I don't know where you could get a Flux Capacitor from, or a Delorean, and of course the Plutonium would be very hard to come across these days'

Boorman continued: 'Ewan could not come along this time, but I am looking forward to eating quail's eggs with some posh Regency Toffs and Totty at the end of the series, and then coming back to London triumphantly at the end of the series, and then writing up my book, first as a hardback for the Christmas Market, and then as a Paper-back after that. Of course, I could go back in time and really bugger up the Space Time Continuum, but that would be a small price to pay for the adventure of a number of lifetimes'
