Celebrity Coach Trip

Series 2 - Episode 1

Radio Times
Review by:
Claire Webb

This daft but addictive series returns with another busload of D-listers desperate for glory. The only really recognisable face — warily taking a seat among the wannabes and has-beens — is Michael Barrymore. For the next fortnight, they’ll be ferried around the Mediterranean competing against each other while an impudent voiceover mocks their every move.

The first stop is Monaco for a car race slowed down by police clearly befuddled as to why their streets are suddenly overrun with spray-tanned Brits in electric golf buggies. But only when it’s time to vote off the first pair do things get really ugly as ten fame-hungry egos battle it out.

About this programme

Among the famous passengers are former Big Brother contestants Brian Belo and Spencer Smith, TV presenter Lizzie Cundy, one-time MP Lembit Opik, entertainer Michael Barrymore and showbiz partners Gary Cockerill and Phil Turner. The tour begins in Monaco, where the holiday-makers drive electric buggies.
