A couple crowned winners of a reality TV show have spoken of their “unbelievable” experience.
Bradley Mee, 27, and partner of eight years Kevin Stamp, 31, were the last men standing on E4’s Coach Trip: Road to Marbs.
The pair enjoyed nearly three weeks of exhilerating activities and night life as they toured down the Spanish coast, winning a luxury stay in the destination Marbella after being judged the most popular pair on the show.
Bradley, who lives in Wellington Drive, Dagenham, said the unexpected victory aired last month was “amazing”.
“I’ve never won anything before, it was just amazing,” said the former ambulance driver at Kinge George Hospital.
“I was so shocked, I couldn’t believe it,” he added. “When we found out I was crying, I didn’t know what to say.”
Perhaps the most exhilerating activity of all was a sky-high proposal, as Bradley chose a flight in a private jet to pop the question.
“I was quite nervous, especially when he said yes,” said Bradley, a former student at Dagenham Priory School.
“I was really happy but also shocked, it was such a good moment. When we watched it back we all had a bit of a cry.”
Now back home in Dagenham, the happy pair are saving up for their wedding and looking forward to their dream holiday in May.
Kevin, of Ridgewell Close, said: “I was over the moon. It was a very private and personal for us, but was also good to share a personal moment with the viewers, and the response has been amazing.”
Winning the five star retreat in Marbella made a surreal stay even dreamier.
“That was the absolute cherry on the cake to get to the final, to actually win it – the elation was unbelievable,” added Kevin. “We are still pinching ourselves.”
