‘Benidorm’ return date confirmed – watch Season 9 trailer!

ITV has announced that the ninth season of Benidorm will begin next week.

The award-winning comedy is back with nine brand new episodes.

The new holiday season kicks off at the Solana resort with the return of two popular characters – Liam (Adam Gillen) and Sam (Shelley Longworth). The Dawsons arrive for a new holiday that doesn’t get off to a great start and when Sheron’s Mum Loretta (Kate Fitzgerald) joins them – Benidorm will never be the same again! Could Joyce Temple Savage (Sherrie Hewson) finally find romance this series with Monty (John Challis)?

Season 9 begins at 9pm on Wednesday 1 March on ITV.
