AN ACTOR and reality show star from Bracknell is featuring in the new series of E4s game show Coach Trip: Road to Tenerife.

Lewis Hepworth, who has featured on television shows such as The Only Way Is Essex, Terror Effect and 100 Balfour Road has now joined the holidaymakers on the Road to Tenerife. 

The show sees seven teams of two head off on a coach tour around some of the world's most popular holiday destinations for a few weeks with the aim of not being voted out.

The couple that receives the most votes on day receives a yellow card, and if they receive a second yellow card they then pick up a red card and are sent home and replaced by a new team.

Lewis believes that Coach Trip is his chance to mend his relationship with his home town with which has reacted negatively to his previous television appearances. 

He said: "I have received a lot of negative attention and abuse on social media and in and around Bracknell over the last few years for the shows that I have been on.

"A lot of Bracknell residents weren't happy to see me in the shows that I was doing and my reputation has suffered. 

"I am on coach trip to hopefully change Bracknell's perception of me and I want people to get to know me a little bit more. I hope people enjoy watching the show and support me- I want to do Bracknell proud."

Asked about his experience on Coach Trip, Lewis said he had an unbelievable time. 

"It was just fantastic. I made some incredible friends and it was an experience that I will never forget." 

The 40-day show, presented by tour guide Brendan Sheerin, airs on E4 from 7.30pm to 8pm, until March 2.
