Johnny Vegas Series For C4
Channel 4 has commissioned Llas Vegas
following the glamping adventures of actor and comedian Johnny
Vegas and his long-suffering assistant Bev, as they set about
establishing a holiday home camping site in North Wales.
Johnny and Bev need to source and
renovate five vintage, single story buses and transform them

with no previous experience of running a business or conducting
renovations on this scale, Johnny and Bev have a long battle
ahead as they try to establish a must-stay glamping site in time
for the summer season.

Commissioning Editor said: “This is Johnny as we’ve never seen
him before, following a dream to create the ultimate glamping
site, from inception to realisation. We’re delighted that he and
Bev have chosen to share their glamping adventure with us.”
