Sharing images on their Instagram pages, both Phil and Martin said: "We were delighted to entertain our friends and family  over the weekend with a special party at @johnniewalkerprincesstreet to celebrate season two of our adventure TV series, Norwegian Fling." The new show sees the duo travel to Norway for the second series of their documentary. They explore the culture, try the food and take in the scenic landscapes. And the show also sees them celebrate Norway's National Day, meet the Bergen Scottish Society, try local adventure sports and spend a day with Norwegian pop princess Dagny.
