When is Benidorm series 10 on ITV? Who’s joining the cast with Shane Ritchie and which characters are leaving?

BENIDORM fans will be pleased to hear that filming is well underway for Series 10 of the popular ITV show.

But what can we expect from the new series and who will be starring in it? Here’s all you need to know…

Benidorm is returning for it’s 10th series

What is Benidorm? when will Series 10 start

Benidorm is a sit-com that has been running since 2007 on ITV1.

The comedy follows the lives of Brits abroad at the all-inclusive The Solana hotel in the heart of Benidorm, with hilarious consequences.

The show features an all-star cast and often features ex-soap stars and famed faces from British TV.

Leading lady Sherrie Hewson has revealed that filming for Series 10 is well underway.

The show usually kicks off sometime at the beginning of the New Year, so we predict that the new episodes will start on ITV in early 2018.

Sherrie Hewson revealed that filming is well underway

What cast have been announced for Series 10 of Benidorm?

Most of the usual faces will be back for the brand new series:

  • Sherrie Hewson returns as the long-suffering manageress of the Solana hotel.
  • Tim Healey, who plays cross dresser Les/Lesley Conroy, also makes a welcome return. He only featured in half of Series 9 due to health reasons. The new series will see him chased by two detectives, played by comedy duo Hale and Pace.
  • EastEnders star Shane Richie is back for four episodes reprising his role as lively entertainer Sammy Valentino.
  • Only Fools and Horses star John Challis becomes a series regular with his character Monty Staines.

Other show favourites returning include Mateo (Jake Canuso), Noreen (Elsie Kelly), Pauline (Selina Griffiths), Liam (Adam Gillen), Kenneth (Tony Maudsley), Sam (Shelley Longworth), Joey (Nathan Bryon) and Jacqueline (Janine Duvitski).

Who won’t be returning to Series 10 of Benidorm?

Troy (Paul Bazely) and The Oracle (Johnny Vegas) won’t be in Series 10.

Tiger, played by Danny Walters has also left the show after landing a leading role in EastEnders.

Even after popular demand, The Garvey Family WILL NOT be returning.

The hilarious family, which included tanned chain-smoker Madge, left the show in Series 7.

The Solana is a real hotel but it is called something different

Where do they film Benidorm? Is the Solana a real hotel?

The Solana is the hotel featured in the show where the characters stay.

However, although the hotel featured is a REAL hotel, it is not called The Solana – and there are two of them.

The pool scenes are filmed at the Sol Pelícanos Ocas in Benidorm.

The room scenes are filmed in the Acuariam II Apartments, which overlooks the pool.

But the reception area including Kenneth’s Blow n’ Go salon, is a studio set.

The evening scenes where the guests are in ‘Neptune’s’ is actually filmed at the Morgan’s Tavern, which is almost directly across the road from Sol Pelícanos Ocas.
