Join Derek in Morocco



Thursdays 8.30pm RTÉ 1 TV

Crystal Swing's Derek Burke, Senator David Norris, journalist and broadcaster Victoria Mary Clarke, singer Dana, comedian Alison Spittle and Olympian David Gillick show us the highlights of Morocco in Celebrity Globetrotters, a fabulous new six part travel series which started recently on RTÉ One.

In each episode one celebrity takes the lead, bringing their fellow travellers on their chosen itinerary. So will they all get on, or will sparks fly?

Jannine Waddell, Executive Producer, Waddell Media which made the series for RTÉ says: “Taking six very different celebrities from different walks of life, different ages and different interests out to North Africa, completely out of their comfort zone and watching their very different reactions to the stimulation of Morocco was a wonderful experience which I hope the viewers will enjoy watching as much as we did filming.”

Watch it on RTÉ 1 TV
Thursday at 8.30pm.
