Johnny Vegas has been on the set of his new sitcom in The Lake District.

The funnyman actor was at Skiddaw View Holiday Park, near Bassenthwaite Lake, to film his new BBC programme.

Johnny is leading the cast of Home from Home, which also stars Gavin & Stacey’s Joanna Page and Silent Witness’ Emilia Fox.

The sitcom tells the story of a family man, played by Johnny, who fulfils his dream of buying a lodge in The Lakes. The pilot episode is due to be shown in the summer.

Filming was based around two lodges at Skiddaw View Holiday Park, owned by Philip and Barbara Carr.
