Ryan, Scott and Adam Thomas starred alongside their dad Dougie in the ITV show, which saw them head to India to seek out members of their family, and their new programme is set to see the sibling trio head to South America and the Caribbean.
A source said:
‘ITV were delighted with the success of the first series so are now planning another once lockdown is eased.
‘The idea is to send the lads around South America, taking in the Caribbean, after it was revealed in the first part that they have family ties there’.
It is thought the brothers may get more series if the second season does as well as their Indian adventure.
The source added to The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre TV column:
‘If the second series goes as well as the first, they could be locked into a multi-series deal’.
And the brothers have even been likened to Judith Chalmers, who presented travel programme Wish You Were Here…? from 1974 to 2003, after audiences loved their “cheeky banter and infectious personalities”.
The trio and their dad Dougie – who fronted 70s group Dougie James And The Soul Train – explored the likes of Mumbai and Goa in search of long-lost family members in ‘Mancs in Mumbai’, managing to meet up with a few.
Ryan and Adam are both known for their soap careers in Coronation Street and Emmerdale respectively, and Scott starred on Love Island in 2016.
