Tunisia in North Africa might be a tiny country –only 150 miles end to end, but it’s big on beaches, ancient ruins and of course interesting food.

Those three factors prove very attractive to us Brits – 330 thousand of us visit every year, and like many holiday-makers, our base was Hammamet on the Mediterranean coast.

In the brief time allotted for film-making for This Morning, we were shown the best North Africa’s smallest country has to offer, from the incredible Roman amphitheatre at El Djem to the white-washed fishing village of Sidi Bou Said with its artisan metalworkers sat in jauntily painted doorways.

For me, the high point of our filming was meeting a female chef who demonstrated typically Tunisian home cooking – I hope you enjoy the film as much as I did making it!


In this Muslim country, alcohol is usually found only in and around hotels, bars and areas frequented by tourists. Therefore, a woman should dress relatively discreetly away from the beach so as not to cause offence.
