Holiday Hit Squad, Series 2 Episode 1 of 4

Angela Rippon, Helen Skelton and Joe Crowley explore how to make the very best of a holiday break and along with the toughest hotel inspectors in the business investigate how to make sure holidays across the globe live up to their promise.

Angela investigates the perils of hotel balconies, hearing from a young man whose fall from a balcony in Thailand left him with horrific head injuries, and is on call with the Turkish police in the holiday resort of Marmaris where she meets a young family who have fallen victim to juvenile pickpockets.

Joe calls in expert help to reveal the hidden horrors of a Cyprus hotel which has been slated online by British holidaymakers, while Helen gives tips on how to avoid the holiday crooks and assists Dr Chris van Tulleken in a pop-up beach surgery, helping British holidaymakers with common and not-so-common holiday ailments, including what appears to be a mysterious moving mosquito bite.

Plus, reporting on some of the very best holidays at home and abroad, Joe and Helen go head-to-head to find the best city break. In the battle of vacation versus stay-cation, can Bristol ever hope to compete with New York?
