(2 p.m. GMT) -- Jane McDonald continues her Aussie adventure in the second episode of the hit Channel 5 show, which airs this Friday.

Episode 2 kicks off in Brisbane and the Lone Pine Koala sanctuary, where Jane becomes a keeper for a day. She then takes a breath-taking night cruise along Brisbane's river, before heading west to Perth.

After a week on land, Jane gets back on Sun Princess, attends a wedding at sea, is electrocuted (in the name of beauty) in the spa and attempts to learn how to ballroom dance.

The fifth series of Channel 5's most popular show started last Friday (January 4), and in a change to the format, focuses on just one ship and one destination across three episodes. 

It is the second time Jane has gone Down Under in the Bafta-winning series -- last time she travelled with Holland America Line from New Zealand to Australia.

Some of the far-flung destinations she visits include Albany, Freemantle, Geraldton and Broome. 

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises' vice-president UK and Europe, said: "We’re delighted to host Jane McDonald onboard Sun Princess as she experiences Australia.

"We’re looking forward to viewers joining Jane on the other side of the world as she enjoys a relaxing cruise on the beautiful Sun Princess, while visiting some of Australia's hidden gems including the Pink Lakes of Geraldton and Broome's dramatic shoreline."

"Cruising with Jane McDonald" airs at 9 p.m. GMT on Channel 5 on Friday January 11, 2019.
