However, it is believed that what happens in between is entirely off the cuff, and Michael has often shocked Jack with his behaviour.

In the first episode, Michael chased Jack through a forest with a large snake, whilst on a bush survival course.

He also embarrassed his son by attending a speed-dating session at a winery and began making suggestions on what Jack should be asking each woman.

Viewers took to Reddit to share their thoughts on the creation of the series, with one saying: "Travels With My Father is so obviously scripted.

"Their problems, the things they say, everything. It's all set up. Not even a genuine travel show and it ruins the experience of trying to enjoy the actual places they visit."
