queing outside meliaEager fans hopeful to be cast as extra’s in the forthcoming ITV comedy series Benidorm queued up anxiously outside the Hotel Melia in Benidorm this morning. Filming of series 10 – rumoured to be the very last, is due to commence next month.

queing around stairwellAlthough no specific date has yet been confirmed publicly, anyone applying were told that they need to be available between March and July. Those overseeing the castings were too frightened to even utter a word without a written say so from London – somewhat paranoid behavior!


hopefuls Susan Barry MaddoxOne of the first in the queue were Peter O'Grady and Susan & Barry Maddox – originally from Wigan but now resident in nearby Altea. They arrived at the hotel for 9am to find a short queue already formed – official start time was 10am. By mid morning there were certainly a few hundred waiting, application forms filled out and ready for their pictures to be taken. Any with tattoos or unusual piercings had additional close-up photographs taken.
photos for castingThe Pink House, located almost opposite Benidorm Palace transforms into the reception area for the ficticious Solana Hotel and will be a hive of activity until July. You won’t get to see much going on there as it is a closed set but may fair better around the outside pool at the Sol Pelicanos or when they film at Morgan Tavern at the top of Calle Gerona.

The cast are shrouded in a tent away from prying eyes, but many of the cast are fab, knowing that fans are waiting outside and pop out to say hello and have pictures taken with them in between takes.


primoti vans outside pink houseCast and crew will no doubt be popping up around the resort over the coming months – the tell tale white Primoti vans and no parking signs are often a giveaway of where they are filming, so keep your eye out.
Good luck to all those that attended this morning – the afternoon session is from 4pm until 7:30pm

News Snippets

  • Unusual Kit Kat flavours +

    Nestle are opening a factory in Japan to keep up with demand for exotic flavours of Kit Kat. Around 30 varieties have been introduced there including wasabi, soy sauce, green tea, custard pudding & ginger and sake rice wine. But you'll be coughing up substantially more than you do in the UK - these alternative ones cost around $13!
  • Card fee racket +

    From next January, rip off card fees imposed by many airlines and shops are to be banned - and also include American Express, Apple Pay and Paypal transactions. It will hit local authorities such as DVLA, who charge a £2,50 flat fee to use a credit card, which in 2010 generated an estimated £473 million! Currently Flybe charges 3%, Swinton Insurance 2.5% and Ryanair 2%
  • Parents be warned! +

    Schools across England & Wales will be issuing fines to parents of children who are persistently late for school. This follows on from fines issued for unauthorised absences such as taking holidays during term time. Some have already introduced the scheme, which offer a 50% discount if paid promptly otherwise doubled then prosecution could follow.
  • BA fees +

    British Airways - once dubbed Britain's favourite airline have enraged travelers by following in the footsteps of the low cost carriers. In order to guarantee sitting together, which includes families with children, customers are having to pay for seats - £7 for short and £20 for long haul flights. They have already done away with free refreshments... maybe they are having to claw back the millions it cost when the complete BA system failed recently!
  • McDelivery +

    McDonald's and UberEats have teamed up to trial a home delivery service in London, Nottingham and Leeds. Customers living within one and a half miles of one of the 22 select restaurants will be able to order their Big Mac's and fries between 7am and 2am which will be delivered by Uber drivers via the food app.
  • Rip Off fees +

    Brits using their debit or credit cards abroad are losing around £60 per person for each trip by opting to pay in £ sterling rather than euro's - ALWAYS pay in local currency. Third party currency exchange providers add on between 6-10% per transaction then on top of that, your bank will charge a fee for using their card abroad. Over £20 billion is spent on debit and credit cards and a further £2 billion of foreign currency is bought back each year.
