Johnny Vegas, 50, returns with a new episode of new show Carry on Glamping this evening. Yesterday, he responded to his agent Beverley Dixon’s post who detailed the history behind a piece of glass art he created for his Maltese bus, which he has named Patricia.

Paulleo, a builder from the show, shared snaps of the art feature on Twitter, writing: “A huge part of the show that had to be left out was this bespoke piece of glass art painted by Johnny personally but due to the weight we had to get it drilled.

“Unfortunately shortly after cracks started to appear. Salvaged @JohnnyVegasReal #all4 #channel4 #jvglamping #celebpa.”

Johnny’s agent shared the post and praised Paulleo for his efforts in repairing the art after it was damaged in transit.

The presenter responded to the chat, telling fans he was “gutted” about the art not being shown in his show.

He replied: “Not being in the series has gutted me.

“So proud of our @TheWorldofGlass& our proud St.Helen’s heritage of glass production.

“Marcin played a blinder but we honestly thought it was beyond saving. The lads valiantly salvaged it.”

He added the show’s editors cut the scene to “save my tears” as he went on to apologise.

The actor and presenter returned to screens with his new show earlier this month after admitting work had dried up for him.

The series focuses on his dream of running a glamping business with reconditioned buses.

Fans have already witnessed Johnny losing two potential camp sites as he headed up to the Yorkshire Dales with Bev to look at a third.

The series became an idea for the star after he decided to buy a bus on eBay while drunk, and went on to set up a new glamping campsite in the Dales.

Speaking to Radio Times Magazine, he explained why a particular moment during filming left him emotional.

He said: “The site we’d agreed on had fallen through.

“I’d just lost my mum, two years after my dad, so due to grief, Covid, being separated, away from my children and the fact I was starting to develop anxiety issues – I’d about had enough.”

Johnny said he doesn’t normally express his emotions on television, but said he became overwhelmed as the cameras were rolling.

He added: “It just came spilling out, and we left it in the programme because I’ve never been a fan of that TV documentary thing where people are like, ‘I’m on telly, so everything goes exactly to plan!’”

Jonny went on to say his new project meant a lot to him after going through a rather “unsatisfactory” period in his career.

He likened the feeling to being on a “treadmill” after work he was passionate about dried up.

Johnny Vegas: Carry on Glamping continues tonight at 10pm on Channel 4.
