Youth Hostelling With Chris Eubank Is Finally Here


It was the programme that Partridge wanted. Then it became the programme the world wanted. And now, at long last, it's become a reality.

Yes, there's an actual trailer for Youth Hostelling With Chris Eubank.

After the legendary boxer recently admitted that he still had no idea why everyone kept asking him about youth hostels, it appears that the penny has finally dropped - and to his great credit, he's decided to get in on the joke.

He's teamed up with Hostelworld to create this hilarious minute-long clip which shows Eubank inspecting a dorm and a bunk bed, amongst other activities, first suggested on an episode of I'm Alan Partridge back in 1997.

He said: "Up until recently, I had absolutely no idea why people used to mention hostels to me and smile. It was truly an unsolved mystery to me. Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank has now become a reality and finally, albeit a little embarrassed and ashamed, I'm in on the joke 18 years after Alan Partridge pitched it!"

Clearly, this is incredible. Now, for the love of God can someone get on the phone to Chas & Dave?
