Benidorm premieres on UKTV

UKTV – Fridays from 16 April, 9pm

Benidorm is a comedy series set in an all inclusive holiday resort in one of the more infamous destinations on The Costa Blanca.

The Solana apartments play host to a variety of clientele, all looking for one thing; value for money; and they certainly get it. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, all snacks, alcohol and soft drinks are included in the holiday, not forgetting “quality” entertainment in The Red Lion cabaret bar. More reliant on the minutiae of working class characters than traditional sitcom set ups, ‘Benidorm’ probably has more in common with ‘The Royle Family’ than ‘Duty Free’.

On their last day The Garvey’s win a family holiday to The Santiago for the following year thus ensuring more fun in the sun with Santiago regulars Donald and Jacqueline and more new holiday makers drawn to all-inclusive Costa Blanca heaven.

Starring: Steve Pemberton (Psychoville, Doctor Who), Paul Bazely (Moving Wallpaper, Trial & Retribution) and Sheila Reid (Place of Execution, Bones).
