Brendan's Magical Mystery Tour



Tupele Dorgu (voiceover)


Brendan Sheerin


12 Yard for Channel 4, 24 June to 19 July 2013 (20 episodes in 1 series)


Something for Coach Trip's indomitable tour guide Brendan to do while his programme was off air. In this successor programme, Brendan has a bunch of strangers, they're on a coach, and they're going to an unknown destination. When they arrive, they'll be given something to do.

How is this different from Coach Trip? There, people were voted off the bus by their fellow travellers. Here, success in the daily task means players get to spend the night in a luxury hotal. Failure confines them to a less salubrious dorm room. The two best performers across the week are given one final challenge to win the star prize of £1000.

Channel 4 were evidently spooked enough by the failure of this show to burn Brendan's Love Cruise off on More4 at 9.20 in the morning, and to broadcast three series of Coach Trip in 2014.
