The pair have already worked together on three series of ITV travel show Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad.
An insider said: “Their adventures gained around 5million viewers an episode, and producers hope to bring some of that audience to The Larkins.”
Bradley and Barney previously appeared together in the 2013 series of thriller Law & Order: UK.
The Larkins will also star Bridgerton’s Sabrina Bartlett, 29, as Mariette Larkin — the role which made Catherine Zeta-Jones famous in the first TV adaptation of the H.E. Bates novel.
