Irish presenter gets mammy to star in new extreme Sky 1 show

This looks epic!

Irish presenter Baz Ashmawy, former host of RTÉ ‘How Low Can You Go?’, has released a trailer for his six-part Sky 1 series called ‘50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy’.

It stars him and his sprightly 70-year-old mother Nancy who is looking for some adventure in her later years.

Baz and his mother travel to the US, Asia and Africa as he looks for crazy ways to frighten the life out of his poor mammy.

She also comes out with a line no mammy should ever have to say!

“If you think I’m going to shoot you with a taser gun you’re thinking again!”

The series begins this summer and Baz told the Sky website why he was keen to do the show with his mother.

"I think old age is probably the most unexpected of things to happen to a person, my mother is at a stage in her life where she yearns for a bit of adventure and, thanks to Sky 1, I'm going give it to her.

“Now it's her time to try some new things but I'll be holding her hand the whole way, if I'm not being forced to play travel scrabble and drink tea. To share a journey like this around the world with anyone is life changing but to share it with your 70-year-old mammy, that's the stuff of folklore,” said Ashmawy.

Either way we think Nancy will become a big star over the summer!
