Series 1, Episode 2

After the shock revelation about Chantelle's pregnancy, the guests can find little else to talk about. Martin and Kate take a trip into the resort centre, where they have a traumatising experience.

Further details

All the regulars are gossiping about Telle's pregnancy; her family are concerned except Madge who thinks she's just done it to ruin her holiday. Because Kate doesn't want to spend a moment longer in the resort, Martin suggests a trip out to the town centre of Benidorm. But it ends in disaster when they get constantly lost and eventually seek refuge in a bar for a quiet drink...

The evening's entertainment at Neptune's is supplied by a blacked up tribute act to the American South which leaves Gavin and Troy open mouthed. They are also shocked to hear about a sexy magic act called Sticky Vicky who produces bunches of flowers, and other things, from an intimate part of her body despite being well into her sixties. Kate and Martin return to the resort traumatised - the bar they were drinking in had Sticky Vicky performing!
