Episode two of Hector USA will see him meet people who took part in the Selma bridge crossing in 1965.

Last week on Hector USA, Navan's most famous intrepid traveller began his American roadtrip with a stop-off in Georgia. This time though, he's going home.

Sweet home Alabama, that is.

After some bass fishing in Lake Smith, he meets up with the Blind Boys of Alabama for a singsong before heading to Selma to walk on Edmund Pettus Bridge. Once there, he meets some of the people who were there on Bloody Sunday in 1965 and experienced first hand the horrors that took place.

He'll also be togging out for the Auburn College Football Team before getting some pageant training with the most desired pageant coach in the nation, Bill Alverson. He's on the road again then heading further south where he's part of the blessing of the boats 'Irish Style' with the Bishop.

This week's episode airs tonight (Thursday, 31 October) on TG4 at 9:30pm, or you can also catch up on the TG4 Player from anywhere in the world.

It's still only early days on Hector's USA adventure, and the next stop on the list is the "The Magnolia State" of Mississippi.
