Jan Leeming, actor, author, broadcaster and star of the ‘Real Marigold Hotel’ is once again heading off on her travels, this time as the Brand Ambassador for Just You, the UK’s single traveller specialists.

Travel has always been in Jan’s blood, born in Kent she moved ‘down under’ to Australia, where in 1963, while in Sydney, she made history by becoming the first woman newsreader on television.

On returning to the UK, Jan’s TV career went into overdrive, joining Granada TV as a newsreader; fronting her own show, Women Only, on HTV for six years; presenting Pebble Mill and The Food Programme and spending seven years reading the BBC news.

Most recently Jan was back on the BBC as she and her fellow celebrities entertained with their exploration of India in the 'Real Marigold Hotel'.

“Just You is looking forward to working with Jan as we continue to expand the range of single traveller holidays that we offer to our increasing number of customers.  Jan is a true global traveller and she brings with her a wealth of destination experience along with a loyal following of fans,” said Nicole Mason, Group Marketing Director of Just You holidays.

“There is so much of the world to see and if like me you are a solo traveller it can be incredibly daunting heading off on your own. I truly believe that Just You is a fantastic way to go on holiday where everything is taken care of and you explore the world with a group of like-minded travellers,” said Jan Leeming.

“Just You’s range of holidays is staggering and there is something for everyone, whether you are looking to stay closer to home and explore Europe, or if you are a bit of an adventurer then why not head off with Just You to India, China, Latin America, South Africa, Borneo or Burma?” added Jan.

Just You offers great value holidays to over 60 countries on every continent, there is even a holiday to Antarctica. Just You holidays include flights, all local transfers, each customer has a room of their own with no single supplement, a Just You Tour Manager and a wide range of included excursions

Just You holidays aren't just for single people, they're for anyone who wants to travel solo and experience a new destination in good company.

After watching Jan on BBC’s 'Real Marigold Hotel', interest in discovering India continued to grow, Jan has always had a close affinity with India and is looking forward to returning one day.

“There are so many more places I want to visit in that amazing country.  I’d love to do a trip in Southern India as my father was born and brought up in Coonoor in the Nilgiri Hills.  I understand that my family first went to India in the 1750’s at the time of Clive of India.  I’ve always had a strange leaning towards the country. 

“To avoid the pitfalls usually associated with travelling on your own, my advice is to find the destination that you really want to explore and let Just You take care of the rest, they really take the worry out of solo travel,” added Jan.

As the Brand Ambassador for Just You, Jan has been busy planning her next Just You holiday.

“It is really hard to choose just one holiday from the seemingly endless adventures on offer. There are so many places I still want to visit before I shuffle off this mortal coil – the Rockies; Grand Canyon; Cambodia; Japan; Southern India;  and I never tire of South Africa and Australia.

“I would like to go on a few more safaris and spend more time with huskies, I had a taste for this after I was on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! when I went with my son on holiday to the frozen north,” said Jan.
