What happened in Bradley Walsh and Son: Breaking Dad?

Last night’s (Monday, January 11) episode saw Bradders and Barney set off for the first leg of their tour of Europe.

It saw them arrive in The Netherlands, where they tried their hand at an old Dutch sport that involved using a pole to vault over water. Brad gave it his best shot, although he couldn’t quite clear the water like his son and ended up soaked.

Bradders’ extreme fear of heights

As viewers will know from last year’s series, Brad has an extreme fear of heights.

But with Barney at his side, the TV presenter managed to climb all the way to the top.

Are they trying to kill Bradley Walsh? Too old, poor guy.

However, it was a struggle and he often had to stop to catch his breathe and get over his terror.

Elsewhere in the episode, The Chase presenter knackered himself out by having a go of cycling around a velodrome track.
