Trinity's crew with Ade and Bill Wakeham

Trinity Sailing to Appear on New ITV Show

Trinity Sailing’s crew will be featuring on a  new prime-time ITV  show next month.

Television presenter, and comedian, Adrian Edmondson spent a day filming on Trinity’s 1892-built vessel Leader, last summer, for a new television series called Ade at Sea.

Trinity is set to feature on the first 30-minute programme of the series when it airs on Thursday, March 27, at 8.30pm, on ITV.

Ade, and his film crew, spent a sunny day sailing about six miles out to sea beyond Berry Head.

Operations Manager, and Trinity Skipper, Matt Gilchrist, said: “It was a nice day for it and everyone seemed to have a good time. Ade was a nice guy and took a real interest in the history of the vessels, as did his film crew.”

Brixham history and trawler enthusiast Bill Wakeham is also set to feature on the show.

Most people will know Adrian, who is married to fellow comedian Jennifer Saunders, from the cult eighties and nineties television comedies The Young Ones and Bottom. He also won the eight series of Celebrity MasterChef.
