Who’s On Celebrity Coach Trip 2022?

Who’s On Celebrity Coach Trip 2022?

Celebrity Coach Trip has landed on our TV screens after a two-year hiatus - and fans are keen to know what the full lineup is.

The E4 show sees a group of celebrities embark upon a European bus tour - which explains why it’s been out of action for the past two years with Covid-19 travel restrictions - where they’ll be buddied up in pairs and complete a number of excursions and cultural activities along the way.

At the end of each day, the pairs have to vote for who they least enjoyed travelling with. The pair with the most votes is handed a yellow card; two yellow cards will see them given a red card and be sent home on the next flight, only to be replaced by a new celebrity pair to fill up the coach. At the end of the journey, one pair will be crowned the winner.

This year, the group of celebs set off on their three-week adventure from Braga, Portugal aboard tour guide Brendan Sheerin’s infamous coach. Episode one aired on Monday 3rd January 2022.

The Celebrity Coach Trip line-up for 2022 is as follows: 

Matt Richardson and Will Best


Presenter and stand-up comedian Matt Richardson is paired up with actor and presenter Will Best.

Matt Richardson is best known for presenting the ITV2 spin-off show The Xtra Factor with Caroline Flack in 2013.

Will Best has presented some of the UK’s biggest youth music channels, including MTV, T4, Freshly Squeezed and 4Music. He’s also presented for the BBC, Channel 4 and ITV, most notably on T4 on the Beach and Dance Dance Dance.

Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph


Loose Women panelist and actress Linda Robson is partnered up with fellow actress Lesley Joseph on this European tour. 

Lesley is known for her role in Birds of a Feather, which is where she met Linda, who also starred in the series. 

“I love travel, and travel with a friend is even better, so the chance to go on holiday with Linda was too good to miss,” said Lesley. “After months of lockdown it made it such a special experience.”

Sophie Kasaei and James Tindale


Geordie Shore stars Sophie Kasaei and James Tindale make the third celebrity pair on this year’s Celebrity Coach Trip.

Superfan Sophie said, “I have always been the biggest fan of Coach Trip from when I can remember. Forget all the other reality tv shows, my dream was to do Coach Trip! I have been such a massive fan of Brendan, watching him with my family on weekday afternoons! The experience of travelling around Portugal with a bunch of celebs? Yes please! It was everything I could have imagined and more.” 

Celena Cherry and Mariama Goodman

The Honeyz bandmates Celena Cherry and Mariama Goodman make the next twosome. 


At their peak, British RnB group The Honeyz had five UK top 10 hits between 1998 and 2000. Now, two of its band members have taken on a different kind of challenge and are both huge fans of international tour guide Brendan.

Ashley McKenzie and Paul Danan

Last, but certainly not least, there’s Olympian Ashley McKenzie who is paired up with actor Paul Danan.

Ashley McKenzie is a judoka who competed for Team GB’s Judo Team in the London 2012 Olympics. But Celebrity Coach Trip isn’t his first stint in reality TV; Ashley made it to the final of Celebrity Big Brother in 2012.

“I’m used to travelling the world as part of the Great Britain Judo squad, but never have a chance to really experience or enjoy the places I visit, as I’m always there training or competing,” said Ashley. “Coach Trip gave me the opportunity to see new places and meet new people, which is why I decided to take part.”

Paul Danan is best known for playing Sol Patrick in Hollyoaks. He too is no novice to reality TV, having appeared in Celebrity Love Island in 2006. Paul said he’s looking forward to bringing some “Danan TV gold back again!”

Celebrity Coach Trip 2022 started on Monday 3rd January 2022 and airs nightly on E4 at 8pm.
