However, he revealed Channel 5 became concerned about how viewers would respond to the programme, which sees him embarking on various short trips around European destinations, amid new travel restrictions.
Sharing his disappointment over the situation, Gregg said: “I was disappointed because I’ve been desperate to see it go out and it was over a year ago that I filmed it.”
He added: “But I understand why the channel wanted to do it.
“They thought it was inappropriate, I kind of agree with them, you know these cities were locked to us.”
