The Queen

TV star reveals The Queen’s favourite television programme that she never misses

The Queen is known to be a fan of many television shows, including PointlessCoronation Street and Countdown, and now it has been revealed that she enjoys watching Channel 4’s Coach Trip.

The show’s presenter, Brendan Sheerin, made the revelation to The Sun, saying that Her Majesty enjoys the show so much, she instructs Palace aides to record episodes, so she is kept up to date.

The 58-year-old said: “I’ve heard the Queen has it recorded in when she’s away. It makes me so proud as I love the Queen. I think she’s an amazing lady, especially all the good things she’s done for this country. She’s phenomenal.”

Coach Trip is a British reality game show which has been broadcast on Channel 4 since 2005. 

The next series is due to air on E4 later this year entitled Coach Trip: Road to Zante.

The show’s format consists of several teams of two undertaking a coach tour of different European countries. The tours last for many weeks with passengers staying indefinitly until their fellow passengers vote them off and they are replaced.

Brendan Sheerin has hosted the show since its inception and acts as the tour guide.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that the 91-year-old Monarch is a big fan of BBC One quizshow, Pointless.

It is understood that Her Majesty stumbled upon the show after turning to BBC One to watch the BBC News at Six, which The Queen watches frequently and is preceded by Pointless. Despite being reportedly rather bad at trivia games herself, the show has struck a chord with Her Majesty, and she now watches it frequently.

It’s highly unlikely we’ll ever see The Queen make a guest appearance on either Coach Trip or Pointless, but it might make other fans of it rather pleased to know that they can count on the Head of the Commonwealth amongst their ranks.
