An episode of Motorhoming with Merton & Webster which was filmed in Gorleston is to air this week. 

Paul Merton - famous for his appearances on Have I Got News For You - and his wife, comedian Suki Webster, visited the Norfolk town on the final leg of their motorhome tour. 

The pair visited a number of local attractions for the Channel 5 series. 

They enjoyed the traditional seaside charm of Gorleston and its award-winning sandy beach before discovering satirical history through a Punch and Judy show.

Mr Merton and Mrs Webster also visited a colony of seals and ditched their motorhome for sail power with a trip on a traditional Norfolk wherry.
