Benidorm to get stage show

Share article:

"Benidorm" is going to be turned into a stage production.

The resort comedy has proved such a hit with viewers over the past 10 years that the creator Derren Litten has decided to pen a version that will work in the theatre.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "It's going to be more outrageous and funny than the TV show. Casting has already begun and a few of the telly stars have already shown interest. With the show's popularity at a peak, it's the right time to do it."

Not much is known about the theatre version - including whether Sherrie Hewson, who plays Solana hotel manager Joyce Temple-Savage on screen, will take part, but it's believed there are some lucrative offers on the table for the cast.

A spokesperson for the show explained: "Derren Litten is in the early stages of writing a stage version of his hit ITV series. Details will be confirmed at a later date."

The cast are currently in Spain, filming series 10 of the comedy and it's believed the next instalment will be better than ever as bosses have secured some exciting cameos - including Bobby Ball, who is one half of the comedy duo Cannon and Ball.

The former "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" contestant had hoped to keep his appearance a secret until the show airs in 2018, but he was spotted filming in the Spanish resort by holidaymakers.

His character is said to be linked to the Dawson family.

The new series of the show will also see a guest appearance from former Spandau Ballet singer Tony Hadley, and programme bosses are keen to sign more big names up to mark a decade on screen.

A source said recently: "There are more names to come. We're going all out to make this a series to remember."

The series will also see the return of show veteran Tim Healy, who had taken a break due to ill health, Shane Richie back as Sammy Valentino and John Challis in a permanent role as Monty Staines.
