IT may be Bank Holiday Monday but the film crews were busy working in Benidorm.
The cast and crew of the ITV comedy set in the town were filming outside the Sol Pelicanos hotel – which had a new facade for the occasion, turning it into the Solana.
Crowds quickly gathered as they spotted the film crews arriving and craned their necks to see which cast members would be making an appearance.
Cameras and mobile phones were poised as actor Jake Canuso, who plays Mateo, the sleazy promiscuous Spanish barman walked out with Sherrie Hewson, who plays the Solana manageress Joyce Temple Savage. They were joined for the scene by characters Jacqueline – actress Janine Duvitski and return of an old favourite, Troy – played by Paul Bazely, who last appeared in series three back in 2009.
They all appeared to be showing some concern, gathered around a rather small car with not such a small person inside and caused much laughter as camp hairdresser Kenneth tried to get out!
