If you’re either unemployed or pulled a sickie, it’s almost certain that you’ll remember Channel 4 classic Coach Trip.


It’s essentially like Come Dine With Me on holiday, but instead of bitching about people’s food, personality and life in general, they pretend to all really get on, right up until the point they’re threatened with being voted off the show and having to return to their depressing lives back in Blighty.

And of course there was their legendary tour guide Brendan Sheerin who had all the grade A banter at his disposal and always knew when to put people in their place.

But one problem, it’s very different. Instead of a mix of age-groups and backgrounds they’ve rounded up a bunch of boisterous teens and 20-somethings who just want to get fucked up.
