Jonathan Ross lands own travel show – investigating UK's biggest myths and legends

Jonathan Ross has landed his own travel show on More4.

The 61-year-old TV star has landed the brand-new programme which will see him touring the nation investigating some of the UK's most famous myths and legends.

The much-loved TV presenter will appear in the four-part series and will see him travel to various corners of the nation from pubs to old castles as he aims to uncover the stories behind some of the biggest legends in the UK.

Lifting the lid on his brand-new venture, Jonathan admitted that he couldn't be anymore excited for fans to see what he's got in store.

“I have always been fascinated by the poetry and the truths that are to be found in folklore and mythology," he told.

“So it’s been an absolute pleasure travelling round Britain meeting an amazing array of diverse and enthusiastic people who all share that interest.

“I’ve made some fascinating new friends who all keep the legends alive in their own ways, as well meeting old acquaintances keen to share their love and knowledge of the subject. And the scenery was amazing.”

It's not the first time the TV star has landed a show about his personal passions.

Jonathan previously fronted 100 Greatest Toys on Channel 4, after he was asked to appear on the special programme due to his huge collection which he said could 'rival any museum'.

His vast collection of comics and toys is rumoured to be Britain’s largest.

And Jonathan recently has revealed his collecting passion came from being poor as a boy and longing for expensive toys.

“All the stuff I wanted as a kid, I couldn’t have. So now I’ve bought it all for myself, and that just makes me feel even sadder," he previously told The Mirror.

“So there’s kind of a bittersweet thing about toys for me, which is that all the stuff I wanted, I never had," he added.

Now multi-millionaire Jonathan has amassed a 'scarily large' collection.

In 2009, he auctioned his 1962 copy of the Marvel comic in which Spider-Man made his debut, worth £40,000, for Comic Relief.
