Jane McDonald is getting ready to take fans on a trip around her home turf of Yorkshire for a brand new documentary series. The singer and presenter tragically lost her fiancé Eddie Rothe earlier this year after the musician lost his battle with cancer but is set to return to Channel 5 after a brief break.

Jane will return to Yorkshire to celebrate the region’s best assets. 

The singer and presenter has proven to be a huge hit for Channel 5 viewers over the years. 

The broadcaster has made Jane the star of numerous documentaries and is keen to give her fans what they want. 

A TV insider said: “This is a deeply emotional journey for her, and not just because she was born and raised in Wakefield.

“It’s also the city where she met her fiancé, musician Eddie Rothe, and the place when he died earlier this year after battling lung cancer.

“So there was some incredible memories for Jane in Yorkshire, both sad and joyous, which are the backdrop for this very personal show.”

Jane first presented a documentary on the BBC titled The Cruise. 

However, she has since made her home on Channel 5 with several travelling documentaries.

Last month, Jane gave fans a career update six months after the tragic death of her partner. 

Posting on her official website, she said: “This summer has flown by – I can’t believe it’s autumn already. 

“I had such an amazing time on my 2021 tour, being back out with my tour family was just what I needed. It was great to see all my fans again too – I had really missed you all.

She added: “I’ll be performing this Christmas at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.”
