Michael Barrymore couldn't find a star pal to accompany him on 'Celebrity Coach Trip' so has roped in his friend Morris to come with him
Michael Barrymore couldn't find a star pal to accompany him on 'Celebrity Coach Trip'.
The TV presenter is taking part in the celebrity version of the Channel 4 show but was unable to persuade a famous person to join him, so has taken his friend Morris with him instead.
An insider said: "It's the first time a non-celebrity has been on 'Celebrity Coach Trip'."
In the show - which will air this summer - star couples travel around Europe on a bus and vote off the people they don't like.
Michael and Morris are joined by Katie Price's make-up artist Gary Cockerill and his handiman husband Phil Turner, former WAG Lizzie Cundy and model Emma B, ex Liberal Democrat Lembit Opik and Alex Best and 'Big Brother' stars Brian Belo and Spencer Smith.
Last month, Jodie Marsh pulled out of the show over Michael's involvement.
Model Jodie, 32, said there was "no way" she would share a coach with the controversial TV personality, who she has accused of bullying her while in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house in 2006.
