JONATHAN LEE-HOWARTH aka “JLH” is the most outspoken member of the crew. Having lived in Africa for years he considers himself the best prepared for the adventure. JLH's condescending nature clashes instantly with Lucy's, making for a rocky beginning to the long drive. His enormous suitcase also has Lovie worried. JLH does, however, bond instantly with Susan, his driving partner, who appreciates his sense of humor and love of football. Yet even that relationship is strained when their car blows up 100km from Berlin. As the journey descends into chaos JLH rarely offers useful suggestions … but his spiteful comments take their toll on the team. By the time they reach Mali he's already questioning whether he's bitten off more than he can chew.
