North Wales waterfall ‘most magical thing I have ever seen’ says TV star


Model and TV personality Christine McGuiness visited Aber Falls with a host of other celebrities including Made in Chelsea Star Spencer Matthews and Amanda Lovett from season one of The Traitors during the BBC series.

The show, now in its sixth series, shows seven well-known celebrities, of differing faiths and beliefs, tackle a modern-day pilgrimage – this time through North Wales.

But it was a trip to Aber Falls during the second episode of the BBC series that had McGuiness and the other celebrities in awe.

They were shocked at how amazing the waterfall was, with some saying they didn’t even know there were any in the UK.

McGuiness, 36, revealed she had only just seen her first waterfall in Croatia last year and was left in awe of Aber Falls.

On the show, she was filmed saying: “I’m just blown away. Absolutely blown away.”

Before adding: “It’s my favourite place.”

After the episode went to air she took to Instagram to share that Aber Falls was “the most magical beautiful thing I have ever seen!”


In the post, she said: “Pure happiness and joy. I loved this waterfall so much.

“Honestly one of the most magical beautiful things I have ever seen! I can’t wait to go back.”

“The thing is Christine, this is on your doorstep. You live a couple of hours away.

The third and final episode of Pilgrimage: The Road Through North Wales airs tonight (Friday, April 12) on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer at 9pm.
