Great news, very pleased you've got this - make sure you're somewhere we can see you!

Apparently they can't have the audience standing like last time as that's owned by the BBC. So some of the shots show people sitting down. Not sure how I'll be seen that way!

LoL Taps! Thats why i thought it could be a wind up (I guess it still could be!).

What are the chances i tell people to enter then win myself?!

But its true, if you're not entered you'll never win! Just get your name on the list and keep your fingers crossed!

Tickets received! Airport for 715am on Wed. An average looking hotel (not the glass igloos..). Dinner on Wed night. 6 hours in the studio on Thursday. Then a 5am (3am gmt) flight back on Friday! Wife is going to work from home. I'll kick back and catch up on sleep!

Your pictures were great on the plane, I was thinking it was a pretty cool trip already so that's an awesome bonus.

Yeah, the plane was tiny! But nice to travel with them when they came over to say hello to us all.

Today was filming. Had to leave the phone in the hotel and was security checked. Got to play with huskies and reindeer and have an open fire! The tent is cool and we stood behind Jeremy for most of the shooting. So you'll see the missus but not me!

Won't ruin the show for you, but other than a DHL ad on the track, it's basically the same show you always loved! 2 great films and some chatting shiv!

We missed out on a Mars bar and coffee as 400 people were trying to get them! So just ate some crisps back in the hotel!

The coach leaves the hotel at 530am. Or 330am UK time.

John, you can apply for grand tour Loch Ness up until tomorrow. Tickets only, not a comp! Too far for us! Although some Finns came 1000km over 3 days to come to this one!
