James Martin takes celebrities back to streets where they grew up. James invites Hairy Biker Dave Myers back to his old street in Barrow-in-Furness to find out who lives there now. It is a trip down memory lane for Dave as he meets people who remember him as a boy. Together Dave and James meet the locals and set up an in-person social network in a campaign designed to tackle the growing issue of loneliness in the UK. Britain is one of the loneliest places to live in Europe and James sets out to discover the causes and possible solutions. He meets two locals who have been on their own for some time and finds out that living alone and poor health often go hand in hand.
