In a new three-part travelogue series for BBC Two, seven famous faces are stripped of their everyday comforts to live as modern day pilgrims as they set out on the famous medieval pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago.

With just over a fortnight to tackle this ancient path, actor Neil Morrissey, entertainer Debbie McGee, comedian Ed Byrne, singer Heather Small, priest Kate Bottley, journalist Raphael Rowe and TV presenter JJ Chalmers hike through France and northern Spain to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and the shrine of St James.

Caroline Matthews from CTVC, who broadcast our Sunday morning services, says: "Despite coming from very different religious and spiritual standpoints, the seven pilgrims didn't shy away from any discussion or revelation. They were always extraordinarily open and honest with each other, which makes watching them on this challenging journey even more surprising and revealing".

The third and final episode is this Good Friday at 9pm on BBC2. All three episodes can be seen on BBC iPlayer.
