Eastbourne duo make The Coach Trip final

A MOTHER and son from Eastbourne reached the final of reality TV show The Coach Trip.

Eileen Cunningham and her son Jake were among the last couples left in the final of the Channel 4 daytime show when everyone had to vote for their favourite duo.

Eileen and Jake, who live in Meadowlands Avenue, didn't win the show but said they were delighted to be in the final.

They were on the coach which travelled around Europe and North Africa stopping off at various hotspots for three weeks. At the end of each day each team had to vote off the least favourite couple.

Forty-two-year-old Eileen and 19-year-old Jake were onboard the coach as it travelled through Greece, Italy, Sicily, Malta and Tunisia.

Eileen said, "We were on the coach for 17 days of filming which was really intense but we have made some great friends along the way. We had a great time and really enjoyed it."
