Wright talked about the show to the Mail: "It was an experience of a lifetime. You know, it wasn't a job. It was just me and my dad and my brother doing experiences that we could only have dreamed of doing. We did literally everything you can imagine.

"We pushed my dad to the limit. There was worrying times where he didn't want to say no, because it was obviously his two sons. He didn't want to back out of anything."

It is the first time Wright's father and brother will be appearing on TV.
