A reunion of the cast of the hugely popular ITV sitcom will take place at the Melia Hotel and will run for three days from November 10, according to a report today (Wednesday) in The Scottish Daily Express.
The paper reports that Derren Litten, creator and writer of the show, and Jake Canuso, who played lustful Solana barman Mateo Castellanos, arrived in Benidorm in a pink Cadillac to announce details of “BeniCon”, saying that all who adore the comedy are invited.
Fans will be given an opportunity to chat with cast members and the film crew. There will be quizzes, best costume awards for those dressing up as their favourite Benidorm characters, themed bars and location hunts.
Ticket holders will also be given the opportunity to sing karaoke in the sitcom’s Neptune bar.
There will also be trips to locations such as Benidorm Island—known as Peacock or Pirate Island, though there aren’t any there—and the Algar Waterfalls that were featured in the show.
Ticket holders can also stay at the Sol Pelicanus Hotel which is featured in the sitcom as the Solana Hotel.
Sheila Reid, 84, who plays Madge Harvey has confirmed her place.
Other cast members have confirmed their appearance at BeniCon. They include Sherrie Hewson who played Solana manageress Joyce Temple-Savage, Asa Elliott as himself and Crissy Rock who played Janey Yorke, the first Solana manageress. More announcements will be made as cast members confirm availability.
The climax of the weekend will be the star-studded Gala Reunion Show at the Benidorm Palace.
Ticket prices for “BeniCon” start from £95 for a weekend pass and are available here.
Glasgow-born Sheila had a long and distinguished career in theatre, film and television before joining Benidorm for the first series in 2006.
After chain-smoking Madge and the rest of the Garvey family left the show in 2015, she said:
People come up to me all the time. They’re from all sorts of ages and backgrounds. It’s a show that appeals across the board and that’s a testament to the cleverness of Derren Litten’s writing.
