Martin Kemp and Shirlie Holliman hint at reality show

Martin Kemp and his wife Shirlie Holliman may get their own reality TV show.

The couple's son Roman Kemp, 26, has hinted the "EastEnders" actor and the former Pepsi & Shirlie pop singer have been offered their own porgramme, and he has urged them to "accept the offer" because they loved featuring on BBC Two series "Eight Go Rallying: The Road To Saigon".

Roman is quoted by The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column as saying: "It's difficult because we're all in different countries so much.

"But when my mum and dad did "The Road To Saigon", it was so good. I'm the one going, "Accept the offer". I think they're great on TV. They're just funny."

Martin said: "We were talking about it a few years ago but it never developed."

The couple previously starred in the show which followed celebrity duos who participated in a car rally from Chiang Mai in Thailand to Ho Chi Minh City, which was formerly known as Saigon, in Vietnam covering 2,500 miles.

The former Spandau Ballet star - who also has a daughter Harley, 29, with his wife - previously said he wanted to do the rally because he is "into" cars and owns 15 Porsches.

Martin said: "I was excited by the idea of the rally. I'd never been to Thailand, Cambodia or Vietnam either. I'm more into cars than Shirlie: I've been lucky enough to own nice cars and have an addiction to Porsche 911s. I've had about 15 of them.

"A long drive seemed so much fun - but what really appealed was doing it with Shirlie - just the two of us together. The only time we ever argue is because of the satnav in the car. But on this journey [there is] no satnav."

He also said the main "highlight" of the trip was seeing Cambodia because he liked how traditional and ancient the Southeast Asian country is in comparison to Thailand and Vietnam.
