Take That star Howard Donald is one of the most recent celebrities to film at the popular UK theme park, Diggerland. Howard visited the Kent-based attraction to film an episode for Keith Lemon’s new TV series, ‘Shopping With Keith Lemon’.
The pair had an absolute blast racing JCBs, taking a head-reeling turn on the world famous Spindizzy attraction and competing against one another to ‘Hook-a-Duck’ with a Komatsu mini digger. As well as getting into a right spin doing “doughnuts” at speeds of up to 20kph on the Crazy Carts.
The episode interviews Howard and touches on various parts of Howard’s life. Which includes how he overcame bullying as a child. Howard also told Keith some hilariously entertaining stories about his life experiences.
The hit TV show airs every Sunday night at 10pm. You can watch the episode featuring Howard and Keith’s play date via the ITV2 hub, by heading to episode 3.
