And one part of the show had viewers in hysterics all over again.

Barney, 22, thought it would be hilarious to get his dad, 60, up in a plane to go sky diving.

“Look at the state of it!” Bradley moaned as he saw the tiny aircraft they would be jumping out of. “It’s like an Airfix kit. I can’t go up in that.”

When they got up in the air, Bradders looked terrified but Barney didn’t break a sweat.

“I love you, dad. And I’m so proud of you,” Barney said, before leaping from the plane.

Barney laughed and screamed the whole way down, while Bradley clung to the straps of his harness in grim silence.

Once they had landed, Barney whooped and threw his arms around his dad, who gasped: “I need a drink…”
