Baz and Nancy have come a long way since they started their ‘50 Ways’ journey a few years ago. Baz may have (thankfully) failed to kill Nancy, but he has succeeded in testing her to the limit, and she’s passed with flying colours. So much so that she is now a household name in Ireland, and a real role model for the older generation, showing that there’s more to retirement than just comfy slippers and daytime telly.
As the saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility, and Nancy’s new profile as an OAP daredevil means she has Mammies all over the UK and Ireland looking up to her, desperate for the chance to step into her shoes and start living a little – or maybe even a lot.
Baz will first meet the 3 new Mammies at Nancy’s house, and peering through the kitchen window, seeing them before they see him, he has a chance to size them up, and wonder what he has let himself in for. Collectively, they may well kill him before he gets a chance to even try to kill them.
As ever, Baz reveals where they are off to in each week’s episode. Some of the destinations will be familiar to Nancy, but with new recruits in the mix, there will be opportunities to revisit some memorable stunts and locations, as well trying a few new ones that will be a surprise even for Nancy.
Trying a few old stunts again will mean Nancy become the Alpha Mammy and mentor to the newbies.
Baz and his Mammies are in luxurious Dubai where they will plunge down a 30ft free fall waterslide, take to the skies over the Arabian desert in a flying tricycle and scuba dive in a gigantic shark-infested tank. Will Nancy forgive Baz for joyriding in a stolen Lamborghini?
Baz, Nancy and the Mammies travel to the great outdoors of Canada where they defy death slacklining between two tower blocks and learn deer-hunting from some gun-toting Canucks. Can Nancy overcome her fear of heights at the top of Canada’s tallest building?
Baz and Nancy visit Louisiana with two more Mammies in tow. They join a gospel choir, learn what okie noodling is and take part in an eating contest. Can Baz convince one of the Mammies to leap out of an aeroplane?
Baz, Nancy and the Mammies travel to lush Costa Rica to face their fears as they abseil down a 140ft waterfall, set themselves adrift on raging rapids, and take seven hundred dogs for a walk. Can Baz convince one of the ladies to go head to head with Central America’s highest bungee jump?
