A celebrity version of 'Coach Trip' has been commissioned by Channel 4 with stars such as Lulu and Lee Latchford Evans set to take part
A celebrity version of 'Coach Trip' has been commissioned by Channel 4.
The cult reality TV show currently goes out every weekday at 5.30pm but bosses are keen for the star version to be aired in primetime and are thinking of launching it in January to fill the gap normally taken up by 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Fans have been crying out for a celebrity version 'Coach Trip' since the show started back in 2004. Now they have got their wish."
Stars being lined up include Lulu, comedian Russ Abbot, 'Pop Idol' star Rik Waller, astrologer Russell Grant and former Steps star Lee Latchford Evans.
The regular version of the show features seven couple being taken around Europe in coach, led by camp tour guide Brendan Sheerin.
During each stop, the contestants sample local tradition and take part in fun tasks but then must vote to one couple to leave the trip and the pair with the most votes receive a yellow card.
Two yellow cards equal a red, meaning they are sent home.
