first_imgDaniel and MajellaSINGER Daniel O’Donnell and his just-as-famous wife Majella have been inundated with offers of free accommodation – thanks to a new TV series.UTV Ireland have commissioned the couple to do a road trip series for the new station, taking in some of the country’s best B&Bs.The station says filming will begin next month – but since they announced the new show, they’ve had to field hundreds of calls offering the Donegal couple free accommodation. The six-part series called Daniel and Majella’s B&B Road Trip is being billed as a reality travel programme with a difference.The popular couple will live a somewhat nomadic existence, take to the open road and visit sites of natural beauty, all while staying in B&B accommodation, says UTV Ireland.Their B&B hosts will act as tour guides, showing them around the area as well as sharing stories across dinner and breakfast tables.After news of the series broke, landladies wasted no time in contacting UTV Ireland to offer their services to the Donegal singing sensation. A spokesperson for UTV Ireland said: “Both ourselves and the production company have received a large amount of queries and expressions of interest from B&Bs across the country since we announced the series.”Daniel said the show will serve to showcase places close to his heart and deliver, in a quirky way, an image of real Irish people for would-be visitors.“We had an idea to put together a show that visits Ireland as opposed to encouraging people to travel outside the country. We wanted to show the areas the we love,” he said.“In my early days I stayed in B&Bs an awful lot, when we toured dances around Ireland. It just seems like a great way to show off the country because you are meeting the local people as well.“If you stay in hotels you don’t necessarily meet the real Irish people.“I think, or I hope, it will give viewers the opportunity to see a different Ireland – where you can come and be very much part of the family,” he said.
