Coach Trip

Series 9 - Episode 1

The wheels on this particular bus continue to go round and round with a ninth series setting off on Channel 4 today. The idea, should you not be familiar with it, is that a group of holiday-makers who have never met go on a coach trip across the continent, and are voted off pair by pair by their fellow travellers until only the victors remain.

It shouldn’t be so popular but it’s become a cult series. Today tour guide Brendan Sheerin takes his 14 tourists for a sobering visit to Flanders Field in Belgium, followed by a spot of beer tasting. Needless to say it’s not long before the scheming begins.

About this programme

1/30. Fourteen tourists set off on a European tour, beginning with a visit to Flanders Fields in Belgium, before enjoying a spot of beer tasting. However, it is not long until the scheming starts, just in time for the first vote.
