The idiot returns

After a massively successful first series where we, and 35 other countries, enjoyed watching Karl Pilkington display what an unbelievable idiot he was, a second season has now been confirmed.

An Idiot Abroad 2: The Bucket List sees Karl going through experiences that people choose to do before they die. Like that Jack Nicholson film you saw on a plane that you can't remember that well.

Unsurprisingly, Karl isn't overly excited about the experience. "I’ve never understood the “things to do before you die” idea," he said. "If I was ill, I'd be in no mood to have a swim with a dolphin."

More of the same then, we hope. But despite being part of Sky's most watched show for two years, it wasn't easy to get Karl back on the road. "It was hard work getting Karl to agree to another torture session, I mean series," Ricky Gervais joked. "It was time to give him a piece of the pie. It will most probably end up in his face."

The series hasn't yet started production so we might be in for a wait. For now though, here's some of Karl's best bits for you to watch, probably from behind your hands. Oh and remember, 35 other countries are seeing him as our overseas representative.
