CELEBRITY couple Timothy West and Prunella Scales climbed aboard a recently restored Edwardian steamship as they filmed an edition of their highly popular Great Canal Journeys Channel 4 TV programme.

The husband and wife team took a trip on the 'The Danny' which reguarly travels through Cheshire on the Manchester Ship Canal.

A spokesperson for the Daniel Adamson Preservation Society, said: "The couple enjoyed a relaxing cruise along The River Weaver in Cheshire from Acton Bridge to Sutton Weaver where they toured the full ship including its unique Art Deco saloons which will be featured in the programme.

"They also spent time with our Skipper and Chairman Dan Cross with Timothy spending time at the wheel of the ship and also in the steam engine room."

The programme will be aired in Autumn 2019.
