Missing summertime? Dull and damp evenings keeping you stuck inside? Well it is a delight to be able to bask in some of that long-distant but soon-to-return sunshine. Even if that is through our television screens.

Harry Redknapp’s Sandbanks Summer has highlighted the glorious peninsula at its peak in the summer of 2019. Despite the starring turns from famous faces such as Joe Pasquale and Chris Kamara, the real star of the show has been the one-mile long spit of sand itself.

The Sandbanks scenery looks gorgeous in peak summer and reminds us how fortunate we are to live so close to this glorious area. Redknapp himself has proven adept as a tour guide for a locality that he is so evidently fond of and the series has made for the perfect winter-warming television.

Beyond the fantastic scenery, the series has similarly focussed on some of the many events across the Coast with the Most. From the spectacular Air Festival and Harry’s lovely tribute to his beloved wife Sandra to SandPolo, Redknapp has enjoyed some of the south coast’s premier events. His starring role on stage at SandFest was a highlight (perhaps he'll feature at Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage in the not-too-distant future!).

There have also been notable mentions for some of the fabulous restaurants and eateries across the Bournemouth and Poole area including Chez Fred in Westbourne, Harry’s favourite chip shop. Well if it's good enough for Redknapp, it is certainly good enough for me! For a romantic evening out or maybe a Mother’s Day treat Rick Stein is one of Sandbanks's standouts, also highlighted as a fave.

With one final show left in the series, doubtless more local delights will be brought to the attention of itv2's viewers. Aside from the undoubted entertainment value, Harry Redknapp’s Sandbanks Summer has shown that across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole we really are the Coast with the Most!
