From Betty TV GONE TO POT Coming soon to ITV Pictured: (l-r) John Fashanu,Pam St Clements, Christopher Biggins, Bobby George and Linda Robson CELEBRITY LINE-UP CONFIRMED FOR NEW ITV SERIES GONE TO POT All aboard for the trip of a lifetime. The celebrity line-up for new ITV documentary series Gone to Pot has been unveiled and includes Birds of a Feather actress and Loose Women panelist Linda Robson, ex-EastEnders actress Pam St Clement, actor Christopher Biggins, retired footballer and TV presenter John Fashanu and darts supremo Bobby George. The group of well-known celebrities will be hitting the road together for a new three-part series, to embark on the ultimate trip across the US on board a magical mystery bus. They will explore the locals use of marijuana, for both medicinal and recreational purposes and meet some truly extraordinary characters along the way. Each of the personalities is motivated by a personal desire to find out more about the issues involved and the series follows their journey of discovery. They travel to states where medicinal and recreational use has been legalised, meeting people who have experienced both the benefits and downsides of medical and recreational use. The issue of legislation has long been a subject of debate in the UK with marijuana having been reported to ease symptoms of arthritis, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and several other conditions. However, it remains the most commonly used and trafficked illicit drug in the world and evidence suggests that frequent and prolonged use can be detrimental to both mental and physical health. This unique, immersive series will lift the lid on some surprising stories and provide a balanced look at the use of marijuana, whilst promising to take viewers along on a road trip like no other.

ITV’s Gone To Pot: American Road Trip

They said there would be ‘highs’ and ‘lows’…

It’s a show that promises to look at the legalisation of cannabis in the US through the eyes of Pam St Clement, Linda Robson, John Fashanu, Bobby George and Christopher Biggins. Each of the celebrities appear on the show with medical ailments, hoping and wishing that medical marijuana will help their problems. A mishmash of arthritic joints to mood swings.

We’re promised, that the show is a bid to see if legalising cannabis in the UK is a good idea. A funny notion really, that, what they are really doing is sending Pat Butcher and Christopher Biggins to San Francisco to paint a cactus while smoking bongs and hoping it will somehow influence domestic drug policy. But, God loves a trier.

So, with that in mind, they’re all going to puff weed, eat weed and rub weed into themselves, and meet those who grow and use it too. It’s similar to BBC2’s The Real Marigold Hotel, except the celebrities sleep on a tour bus – and eat cannabis-infused brownies instead of curries.

The show starts with five celebrity suspects in San Francisco, on a tour bus painted to look like Scooby Doo’s Mystery Machine. If you fancy a laugh, you can watch them gobble hash brownies, smoke joints and puff on bongs on ITV catch up!

After the celebrities had visited the US they discussed the legal CBD supplements that are readily available in the UK. Most of which can be found here at CBD Life UK:

Pam St Clement, better known for her earrings on Eastenders– was a keen puffer and got the giggles. Linda Robson viewed it as a potential replacement for hormone replacement therapy, while Christopher Biggins, who is asthmatic, had marijuana-infused ointment massaged into his thighs, happily not on camera.

Also along for the ride was committed ascetic and manifestly non-geriatric John Fashanu, who in his role as finger-wagging party pooper proved a little too successful. “I’m high on life,” he explained, boringly. Eventually he tried some marijuana ice cream. “Absolutely nothing happened,” he shrugged.

Without a doubt the most standout moment of the short series must be Eastenders’ Pat Butcher enjoying a bong. While John Fashanu has the complete opposite experience.

All in all, the shows do have as much insight into the use of ‘wacky backy’ in America as it is a celebrity TV programme- worth a watch. Some people have even used social media to brand the show one of the funniest things on TV all year.
