THE BBC is set to release a new series starring independence-supporting actor Martin Compston and his friend Phil MacHugh as they tour Norway.

Compston and MacHugh previously toured Scotland in the BBC series Martin Compston’s Scottish Fling.

The series saw the pair undertake a road trip around the country, visiting some Scotland’s most beautiful places and speaking to a whole host of inspiring people.

In 2024, the BBC will release Martin Compston’s Norwegian Fling, which will once again see the pair embark on an adventure.
