Hurrah! Celebrity Coach Trip’s back on Channel 4 today at 5pm, ready to send a fresh bus-load of D-list stars out on a jaunt around Europe under the watchful eye of cheery tour guide Brendan Sheerin. Oh, how I envy you students, housewives and shift workers…
It’s a smashing TV format, combining the breathtaking scenery of a travelogue with all the thrills and spills of OK Magazine, in a competition that exists solely to pair up celebrities and encourage them to find fault with one another. But as it’s a British daytime show made on a budget, it also means that we get to catch up with a whole raft of performers, pundits and presenters who’ve been out of the spotlight for some time.
Indeed, some of them have been in the wilderness so long you might be left scratching your bonce wondering just who the heck they are. So, seeing as it’s a bumper cast for this series of the show, here’s our handy print-out-and-stick-on-the-fridge guide to this season’s Celebrity Coach Trip teams. All aboard!
