WORCESTERSHIRE fans of Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing will recognise the backdrop of this week's episode which was filmed at the River Severn in Upton-upon-Severn.

The final episode of the popular series will be screened on BBC Two on Sunday (October 3) at 8pm.

In the episode, Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer are on the River Severn in Worcestershire to fish for zander.

It is a new species for both of them, and they enlist the help of a local guide, Tim Maslen, from Severn Expeditions in Upton-upon-Severn, to find the best spots.

Tim said: "It's going to be brilliant for the area because the filming they did in Upton and the Malvern Hills was beautiful."

Paul explains to Bob how he has never even fished for zander before, let alone caught one.

After learning a difficult new technique and staying in a converted lightship, they meet up with This Country star Charlie Cooper to talk about his passion for fishing.

The episode brings series four of the popular show to a close.

Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing has been nominated for three BAFTA awards and has won two Broadcasting Press Guild awards.
