Return to Benidorm

Nicholas Burns in Benidorm

October 01, 2009

Award-winning ITV comedy Benidorm, which stars Nicholas Burns, Abigail Cruttenden and Hugh Sachs, returns for a third series in the autumn, airing at 9pm on Friday nights from October.

Set in the Spanish holiday resort of the same name, Benidorm follows a cacophony of holiday-makers on a package tour. From dysfunctional families to bickering couples via middle-aged swingers, personality clashes are never far away, especially once the sangria starts to flow.

Nicholas Burns and Abigail Cruttenden play Martin and Kate Weedon, a couple whose marriage has been close to breaking point for more than three years, while Hugh Sachs reprises his role as Gavin Ramsbottom, who returns the resort annually with his life and business partner Troy, with whom he owns a hair salon. Lorraine Bruce also features as Valda, Madge's long-lost daughter who turns up at the resort unexpectedly.
