Roy Chubby Brown to star in Benidorm

oy Chubby Brown is set to make a cameo in "Benidorm".

The 72-year-old actor, who is dubbed one of the most offensive comedians in the UK, will be joining the cast in the next series of the ITV show as a character rather than himself and he hopes this will get him back in to mainstream TV.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Roy is really keen to get back into acting and thinks a role on "Benidorm" will get him back into mainstream telly. He obviously doesn't take himself very seriously and neither does the show so it was seen as a good fit."

This isn't the first time Roy has taken on TV roles as in 2000 the comedian played Mayor Larry Vaughan in the BBC2 series "The League of Gentlemen".

Roy isn't the only well-known star to make a cameo on the show with comedy duo Hale and Pace and The Chuckle Brothers also spotted to be joining the show this year.
