Bradley Walsh and his son have gone through all sorts of incredible adventures on their show Breaking Dad.

And this week's episode was no different as the 60 year decided to jump off a 30ft high cliff for the series finale.

The Chase host and his 23 year old son met with a professional cliff diver called Alex to learn all about the art of leaping off heights, with the expert warning them: "Anything can happen."

After an introductory chat about it all, the trio climbed higher and higher before getting to a spot overlooking the gorgeous blue water below. As Barney and Alex helped the TV personality up onto a ledge, Alex said: "You need to jump forward, jump far."

Clearly worried about his dad, who recently looked unrecognisable with blonde hair in unearthed clips from his early career, Barney asked: "Dad, are you sure about this?" to which he replied: "Nope".

Barney then crossed his fingers as he said: "Don't force yourself to do something you don't want to do dad."

Determined to face his fears, dad-of-two Bradley bent down a little before jumping off the edge of the cliff and landing in the water. Impressed, spectators cheered him on before his son turned to Alex to say: "Do you know he's 60?!" to which the instructor replied: "I know, very impressive!"

Floating in the water, Bradley then joked: "I landed on my gluteus maximus, it's absolutely slapped my a***. Ah, my a*** is on fire."

Bradley, who recently couldn't keep it together as a brave contestant created The Chase history, later added: That was terrifying, I’ve got the shakes. What an end to a fantastic tour."

Earlier in the TV show, Bradley broke down into tears after being surprised with a private concert with Italian opera tenor legend Andrea Bocelli.

The star was left in complete shock and awe as his son Barney presented him with his 60th birthday gift. Wearing a blue and white checkered shirt underneath a blue jumper and a pair of jeans, he appeared to be overcome with emotion as he visited the 62 year old singer's luxurious home.

Barney dressed casually in a green shirt and denim jacket paired with some dark trousers as he told Andrea: "It was my dad's 60th birthday…"

Andrea, who donned a very smart black tuxedo for the special occasion, which he teamed with a pair of black sunglasses, interrupted to say: "You have a very wonderful son," to which Bradley replied: "Thank you, thank you so much."

After the violinist was introduced, he sat down and began beautifully singing Time To Say goodbye.

TV presenter Bradley was left fighting back tears at watching the intimate performance. Bradley put a hand to his face as tears formed in his eyes and his lip quivered. He said: "Oh, Time To Say Goodbye," before taking a quick second to glance at his son and giving him a hug in appreciation.

After the gig, Bradley told Andrea: "That was unbelievable. Absolutely wonderful. So emotional. I can't believe it. A true honour."

As he and Barney left the house, Bradley then told his son: "I cannot believe that happened."
