Further details

It is Christmas on the Costa Blanca and the Garveys are staying with Mel and Madge in their luxury hilltop villa - but will Mel make it back from a business trip in time for Christmas dinner?

Noreen finds a travel companion, but he may not be all he seems. There is confusion at the Solana when Donald and Jacqueline check in with a group of close personal friends - including king of the swingers Marvin. Madge is left in charge of the Christmas Spectacular at the Benidorm Palace but when star of the show Su Pollard takes an unexpected detour via a Spanish nudist camp it looks as if the event will be left without its big finale. Can Donald and Jacqueline's famous friend save the day?

We also finally get to meet all the members of the Middlesbrough Swingers Association - one of them is played by Louie Spence. Su Pollard appears as herself with star billing in the Benidorm Palace Christmas show - all doesn't go to plan though when she comes face to face with Madge. Brian Murphy will also guest stars as a love interest for Noreen.
