As viewers might remember from watching the show earlier this year, Bradley and Barney also attended a rodeo. The Chase presenter broke bones in his back when he was chucked from the back of a bull.

Elsewhere in the episode, the pair climbed a huge rock face – despite Bradley’s massive fear of heights.

Bradders actually broke down in tears over the ordeal. And when the pair reflected on it in the RV afterwards, Barney called his dad his “best mate”.

“I hated every second of that,” 60-year-old Bradley said. “It’s a bit of role reversal, because I’m emotional and I can’t get off the cliff. Then I shut my eyes all the way down. You come over and you’re taking care of me.”

Barney told him: “You’re my dad, but you’re also my best mate, you know? And when we do stuff like this, it solidifies it.”

Amazing father/son relationship.

Watching the episode again, a number of viewers were reminded just how incredible Bradley and Barney’s relationship is.
