|Who will Mateo be serving at the pool bar in this series?|
Well I can now exclusively confirm the dates having spoken to the production company, Tiger Aspect. Filming will begin on 25th March and continue until the end of June, so all those lucky enough to be coming over for Easter will certainly get a chance of spotting one or two of the cast about town.

In the meantime, Derren has been very busy on other projects - he has written and completed another comedy "The Spa" which is being aired next month on Sky Living and marks his return to acting... remember, Derren was an actor long before he started writing which many forget.

Series 5 was filmed back in the Autumn of 2011, so its understandable that fans are itching to see the cast and crew return - not to mention the local bars and restaurants too! The cast are always very accommodating to the hundreds of fans who wait around for hours in the hope of getting a photo with them. Some are even shocked to find them sitting at a table next to them in one of the many local restaurants - yes they do have to eat too!

Auditions for extras will probably start taking place at the beginning of March, but I will update you when I have a definite date and location - most likely the Melia again. Since the series began, various television shows have broadcast from the fictitious Solana resort including ITV Daybreak and This Morning, such is the magnet that surrounds this infectious comedy success.
