24 Hours in The Past continues tonight as six celebrities travel back in time to experience the hard graft of Victorian Britain, spending four days in four different 19th-century workplaces. Their second 24 hours finds them facing some tough tasks in a rural coaching inn.


With no break since leaving the toil and grime of the dustyard, Alistair McGowan, Ann Widdecombe, Miquita Oliver, Zoe Lucker, Tyger Drew Honey and Colin Jackson are now up against the clock in the age before the dawn of the railways. There are horses to be groomed, coaches to be cleaned, rabbits to be skinned, guests to be fed, linen to be washed and chamber pots to be emptied.

With two more days to go, who will have the stamina to survive the working conditions of our Victorian Ancestors? Will Colin Jackson come out on top again tonight? Tune in to BBC One at 9pm and find out!


Join us on Twitter tonight at 9pm and let us know your thoughts as the celebrities face their second 24 Hours in The Past. Follow the hashtag #24hoursinthepast

    I’m wondering why this program on BBC was advertised on the American ancestry blog. We can’t watch it. Celebrities Face the Reality of Victorian Life. 24 Hours in The Past Continues Tonight at 9pm on BBC One.

    Hey readers! I am sure for 100% that with the help of paper service any form of assignment feels much easier. If I get a task that I have not done before, I know that learners have writing help in it. Regular discounts make our cooperation much better than with any one else.
