What were Bradley and Barney’s favourite moments from filming?

Bradley, 61, revealed his favourite moment was working with “an amazing escapologist in Hungary”.

“I tried a stunt in a straitjacket,” Bradley explained: “And it kind of escalated once we were there. I don’t want to give too much away, but it was incredible, I’m so proud that I got to do it.”

Meanwhile Barney who enjoys the “high adrenaline” activities said his was surfing in the Arctic.

“It was the most northerly place on the planet you can surf and it was crazy,” Barney said: “We were in 6mm wetsuits and there was a massive storm. Like a hurricane – torrential sideways rain, gigantic waves. It was brutal, but weirdly, being there in the water in those conditions was also strangely calming. I loved it.”

“I also loved the rollercoaster in Poland, the largest wooden rollercoaster in Europe. It was first thing in the morning too, they opened it up early especially for us so we could film on it. What a way to wake up!”

What were their least favourite experiences on the Europe trip?

It wouldn’t be a series of Breaking Dad if Barney wasn’t trying to test his Dad’s fear of heights and this series sees the pair head to the roof of Hajduk Split’s football stadium for an epic challenge.

Speaking of the experience Bradley said: “I absolutely hated jumping off the top of the roof of the football stadium in Croatia, literally hanging from a tiny thread on a swing.

“I thought we were going to play a bit of football at the stadium. Then suddenly I clocked the wires from the roof and my heart sank. It was really not my finest moment.

“I mean, I screamed and swore a lot. You could probably hear it right across Croatia. I also hated the freediving, because I get claustrophobic. It was terrifying.”

Son Barney said his least favourite was the skeleton on the bobsleigh in Scandinavia adding: “I didn’t think it would be scary, but it really was. It was violent, going down the ice at that speed on a metal sleigh. You imagine it will be smooth but every corner was like being hit by a ton of bricks and the g-force was crazy.”
