Further details

The Dawson's 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!

Meanwhile, could Joyce Temple Savage finally find romance this series with Monty (John Challis)?

Series 9 is a suitcase packed full of all your favourite characters, great guest stars, holiday mishaps... and Mr Wu!

In the opening episode, The Dawsons' holiday starts with a bang when Eddie has an accident. Eddie makes a shattering entrance, leaving Joyce and the resort staff to mop up the consequences. As a result, Eddie is caught short in the clothing department and Sheron's fashion taste is called into question when he asks her to pick him up some new kit.

Kenneth is having some financial problems but local dentist Stanley might be the solution. Liam and Kenneth pay him a visit and end up walking away with smiles on their faces.

New holiday rep Sam from head office ruffles Joyce's feathers. Tiger and Joey are in a party mood, so Sam takes them under her wing. When Rob joins them clubbing, there is a surprise in store.
