Will there be second series after Absolutely India: Mancs In Mumbai?

In episode five of the series Ryan and his dad went off to discover more about their family roots and found out Dougie’s grandmother was Caribbean.

The pair met Dougie’s cousin Glen, who had flown in from Dubai.

Glen revealed a gravestone which had the name of Dougie’s Grandma Rose on it.

Glen said: “Rose was West Indian. She had Caribbean blood.”

Ryan said: “Say again?” to which Glen said: “Yes, West Indian, Caribbean. That’s our bloodline.”

Mancs in the Caribbean?

The former Coronation Street actor asked: “So we have Caribbean in us?” to which Glen said: “Yes!”

We’re finding out more than we expected.

Ryan exclaimed: “No we don’t!”

Glen replied: “We have. Why do we have the curly hair? Where do we get it from? Grandma Rose.”

Ryan said: “Oh my God. This is amazing!”

Dougie admitted: “That’s a shock. Dad’s never mentioned that.”

Ryan said: “We’re finding out more than we expected.”

Speaking to the camera, he added: “Our great-grandma, my dad’s grandma was black, Caribbean, West Indian.

“We had no idea! Really special that. Really, really special. We’ve got Caribbean blood in us, who would have thought it?”

Viewers then predicted a second series will see the boys visit the Caribbean.

What did they say?

One person said on Twitter: “#MancsInTheCarribean is next #mancsinmumbai.”

After that, another wrote: “Next series Mancs in Jamaica lads?”

In addition, a third added: “So, I guess this is setting us up for #MancsInJamaica, I’m game, anyone else?!”

Meanwhile, one person even suggested setting up a petition for a second series in the Caribbean.

They said: “Petition for series 2 Mancs in the Caribbean.”

In May, the boys appeared on ITV’s Lorraine and discussed future plans for the show.

Lorraine Kelly asked if they would do Bollywood movies to which Adam said: “I don’t know about that. Listen, I’d love to go out there again.

“To go to Bollywood and go back to Mumbai. Any chance we get to go back there… and especially to do a film out there? You never know, Lorraine! Watch this space.”

What a fitting tribute to their father Dougie it would be.
