There is no Next Episode of Benidorm planned.
Return of the hit comedy set in a Spanish seaside resort. The Garveys only get as far as Alicante Airport before their holiday starts to go wrong, while swingers Donald and Jacqueline stage a protest when manager Joyce refuses to give them a room, despite having previously promised them a free break. Elsewhere, Kenneth is terrified by strange messages he's been receiving at the hair salon, until Liam and Lesley intervene, and a new family arrives at the Solana
When hunky Jason Gallagher (former Brookside star Philip OIivier) turns up at the Solana looking for work, Mateo gives him short shrift, telling him there are no jobs available. However, when the barman skives off, the newcomer seizes the opportunity to stand in for him without permission, and quickly attracts a crowd with his cocktail-making skills. Manager Joyce is impressed and offers him a week's trial, but Mateo is soon battling to reclaim the limelight. Meanwhile, Tiger leads Michael astray by persuading him to help steal the hotel's all-inclusive wristbands and sell them in town
Liam bumps into the beautiful Bianca and decides that he's fallen in love, and Donald and Jacqueline receive sad news about their friend Big Donna. Martin Weedon arrives at the resort for what proves to be a rowdy stag do, and Madge is determined to stir things up with the Dyke family, so Janice, Mick, Tonya and Clive all do their best to ignore her.
Following the stag weekend, best man Martin wakes up in bed next to Bianca, but there's a shock in store when she reveals her true age and he steels himself to face the music with Clive and Tonya. Meanwhile, Kenneth has a crisis at the salon, and when Joyce sets up a volleyball court by the pool, umpire Mateo bends the rules of the game so he can win a bet against Tiger and Michael.
Joyce leaves Les in charge when she takes time off, but he soon ruffles feathers and the staff stage a mass walkout after Mateo gets the sack. Meanwhile, the Solana manageress goes on a secret date with fellow hotel boss Beverley. However, when she bumps into her old flame Cyril (returning guest star Matthew Kelly), she seizes the opportunity to escape with him to the beach - where a shock awaits
Madge comes to terms with bad news from her doctor and makes the most of her last few days in the sun, while Mick braces himself to tell the family about her diagnosis. Kenneth decides to go on a health kick, hiring Liam as his personal trainer, and the Solana guests take part in an eating competition, organised by Cyril in his new role as assistant manager. He's keen to ensure they use the cheapest food available, and the resulting hog roast leads to the contestants taking on more than they bargained for.
The CEO of the Solana Hotel Group (guest star Joan Collins) tells Joyce to downgrade the resort to its original three-star status, and she agrees, but not before she's made sure Cyril's reputation remains untarnished. Meanwhile, Donald and Jacqueline's old friend Queenie (Rustie Lee) is in town for a party with the local swingers' association and arranges for Donald to meet his all-time hero Pepe Le Cruz and his wife Agnes (The Krankies). Pedalo-hire girl Elena comes looking for Michael, and Kenneth has an unexpected visitor at the salon.
