Future of beloved Channel 4 show in doubt in latest schedule shake-up | The Sun

THE future of a beloved Channel 4 show is in doubt following a schedule shake-up.

Coach Trip has been a staple part of the broadcaster's schedule since its very first episode over 20 years ago.

The holiday programme, which aired on sister channel E4, saw teams of two undertake a coach tour.

The contestants travelled around in a bus to various locations and voted to eliminate the least popular pairing.

At the heart of the show is professional tour guide Brendan Sheerin, who has been the host since its debut in 2005.

However, The Sun understands the show's future is very much in doubt – with a new series not currently planned.

Typically, a series of Coach Trip is filmed during the summer season – but no new episodes were recorded last year.

When approached by The Sun, a spokesperson refused to say if the show has been permanently axed.

They said: "A new series of Coach Trip is not in development at the moment, however it would be untrue to say that Coach Trip is not returning to E4."

Host Brendan, 63, previously liked tweets on social media from fans asking if there would be a new series of the reality show.

The last time there was a non-celebrity series of Coach Trip was 2019.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the show was put on hiatus for two years until travel restrictions were eased.

The most recent celebrity series aired on E4 last year which saw Birds of a Feather's Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph board the bus as well as Love Island winners Paige Turley and Finn Tapp amongst other famous faces.
