In the first episode of the series, Joanna travelled through Paris, where she decided to experience the views of the city from a hot air balloon. She also visits the fire-damaged Notre Dame, which was partially destroyed in a blaze - in 2019. She discusses haute couture with Heiress and fashion icon, Daphne Guiness, whilst eating at a luxurious five-star Parisian restaurant. She even splashes-out and treats herself to a vintage Chanel suit.

The episode shows Joanna as she’s learning to fit in with Parisians, how you would get the waiter’s attention at a restaurant, and how you could attract admirers in the local cafe.

Lumley brings her unfiltered charm and sense of humour that would make any trip that much more enjoyable.
