Always fancied travelling around the world on a bus, love chirpy tour guide Brendan Sheerin and completely desperate for a sunny holiday?

Well, super fans of Coach Trip can get excited because the show is looking for new passengers to star on the holiday reality show, and pretty much anyone can get involved.


All you need is to be over 18, and have a valid passport in order to have the trip of a lifetime in some of Europe's sunniest hotspots.

An ad for the show reads: "We're looking for pairs of potential tourists. You can be best friends, family, colleagues or even apply as a solo traveller!

It continues: "If you're fun, confident and want the trip of a lifetime then get in touch."

Coach Trip has had some memorable contestants and hilarious moments ever since it began in 2005, like when Brendan had to issue the entire bus with a yellow card for their bad behaviour.

Viewers even saw the coach visit Marbella in Coach Trip: Road to Marbs.

The Chuckle Brothers, Paul and Barry, have even appeared on the show on a celebrity edition, and activities for the guests have ranged from pole dancing to flyboarding.

They even tried to make chorizo sausages like in this epsiode:

Each episode one pair of contestants are booted off the coach by the other contestants in a vote.
