Photos & Words: Rick Davy, Adrian Hudson, & AH.
"Prisoner" fans staying in Portmeirion awoke to a familiar sound on Tuesday 15th August. The sound in question was that of a Lotus 7 sports car whizzing around Portmeirion. The driver? None other than BBC TV presenter Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. The reason? Filming for the next series of "Holiday", which airs from October 2nd 2006 (exact date of the Portmeirion episode to be confirmed).
After filming involving the Lotus finished, the rest of the day was spent filming several sequences around the village with the presenter introducing and explaining Portmeirion for the viewers. Despite the inclement weather, Laurence was happy to chat with residents and day visitors, and sign autographs.
