    Exclamation Benidorm Series 10

    Benidorm is getting a 10th series - with Shane Richie and Tim Healy both returning
    Congratulations are in order for ITV's Benidorm, which has been commissioned for its tenth series - before its ninth run has even finished.
    The award-winning comedy returned to the channel Wednesday night (March 1) and won its time slot, peaking at 4.9 million viewers.
    The tenth series will begin production on location in Benidorm this month, and favourites Shane Richie and Tim Healy will both be returning.
    Hooray!
    "When I wrote the first script of Benidorm I had no idea it would change my life so dramatically over the next 10 years," said show creator, writer and exec producer Derren Litten.
    "As I put the finishing touches to the 74th episode I am so grateful to our fans and to ITV for giving Benidorm the best possible home we could hope for. Here's to the next 10 years!"
    Tim Healy will return as drag act Les/Lesley full time, while Shane Richie will reprise his role as lively entertainer Sammy Valentino for four episodes.
    Legendary comedy duo Hale & Pace will also join the series as undercover detectives investigating Les/Lesley - which sounds like a recipe for a right hoot.
    While Richie and Healy are back, Johnny Vegas unfortunately won't be returning for series 10, but the good news is that Sherrie Hewson will be as the fabulous Joyce Temple-Savage.
    What more could we ask for?

    Benidorm: 10th series

    The 10th series of Benidorm will see legendary comedy duo Hale & Pace join the show as undercover detectives (Dennis and Nigel) investigating Tim Healy’s character Les/Lesley, who returns to the series full time.

    Shane Richie is back for four episodes reprising his role as lively entertainer Sammy Valentino and John Challis becomes a series regular with his character Monty Staines.

    The Dawsons (Julie Graham, Steve Edge, Kate Fitzgerald, Bobby Knutt and Josh Bolt) all return with Billy and Sheron celebrating their silver wedding anniversary.

    Newcomers to the series include Laila Zaidi who plays Cyd, the new girlfriend of Rob Dawson and Julian Moore-Cook who plays Joey’s mate Callum.

    Joyce Temple Savage (Sherrie Hewson), 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) all return.

    Noreen (Elsie Kelly) and Pauline (Selina Griffiths) are enjoying another holiday in Benidorm with Pauline back on the wagon and hoping to revive her fledging career as a novelist. Things soon flare up with the arrival of Noreen’s twin sister Doreen (played by Elsie Kelly in a dual role) and her very familiar new boyfriend!

    Guest stars in series 10 include The Chuckle Brothers, Nigel Havers, Mark Heap, Bobby Ball, Claire Sweeney, Layton Williams, Carol Decker, Tony Hadley and Holly Johnson.

    The show’s creator Derren Litten penned episodes 1-3 and 8-9 of the new series and Mark Brotherhood (Shameless, Mount Pleasant) wrote 4-7.

    Benidorm has been commissioned for ITV by Saskia Schuster, ITV’s Controller of Comedy.

    Show creator, writer and exec producer Derren Litten says "When I wrote the first script of Benidorm I had no idea it would change my life so dramatically over the next 10 years. I am so grateful to our fans and to ITV for giving Benidorm the best possible home we could hope for. Here's to the next 10 years!”

    Paul Jackson and Derren Litten served as executive producers. David Sant directed episodes 1-5, Duncan Foster directed 6-7 and Derren Litten directed 8-9.
