Sherrie Hewson - Benidorm 8
ITV’s award winning comedy Benidorm returns for it's 8th series starring Sherrie Hewson as Solana manageress Joyce Temple-Savage.
Sherrie says: "It’s always great to be back. I love my character so much. Joyce is extraordinary, when I read the scripts I can hear my voice. I think Derren Litten writes in that way, he creates these amazing characters and brings them all together in this one show. I love Joyce and even after my 40 odd years in the business, this is the pinnacle. She’s everything I would want to do really, there’s drama and comedy with her. She has a sadness and she’s hysterically funny too, there’s so many dimensions to her. I love the way she’s a snob and uses a posh accent. Of course she lets it slip all the time and only uses it when she thinks she’s being superior".
Elaine Bedell, ITV’s Director of Comedy & Entertainment says “Benidorm continues it's enduring appeal with ITV viewers, and we look forward to discovering what creator Derren Liden has in store for the new holiday season at the Solana resort”.
Saskia Schuster, ITV’s Comedy Commissioner says “We are absolutely thrilled our audience continues to enjoy the antics of the Solana staï¬€ and it's holidaymakers”
Benidorm is a Tiger Aspect production for ITV.
The new series will begin at 9pm on Monday 11th January on ITV.
