The premise of the series was that Worland, who had lived in England for twenty years and had an English wife, must follow the Barmy Army as they travel from the UK to Australia for the 2006-07 Ashes series. Jackman makes a bet with his friend—if England wins the Test series, Worland must join the Barmy Army permanently and become an England supporter.
