Putting the Chuckles back into Benidorm

WHAT do Hale and Pace, Bobby Ball, Claire Sweeney and Rotherham’s own Chuckle Brothers have in common?

The answer is they are all guest stars in the tenth series of ITV sitcom Benidorm.

Eighties superstars Carol Decker, Tony Hadley and Holly Johnson are also booked in for a stint in the sunshine.

Many of the star-studded line-up — series regular Sherrie Hewson, occasional star Shane Richie and comics Gareth Hale and Norman Pace – appeared in a photo shared on social media by the Chuckles last April, with the caption “Look who we bumped into”.

The new series of the Costa Blanca-set sitcom kicks off next month.
