Hannah, who shot to TV fame as Tonya Dyke in ITV comedy Benidorm, said: "I'd never been groped in my life, but I was groped three times in one week in Benidorm.

"To get on set, I had to walk through the hotel dressed as Tonya in some non-existent bikini and high heels with blokes gawping at me... or rather groping me."

Review: Benidorm Live

The humour is fairly obvious, but, despite the fact you can see the jokes coming a mile off, the lighthearted banter, constant puns and some seriously outrageous lines delivered with aplomb by Janine Duvitski make it impossible not to be swept into the merriment.

The crowds at Woking prove Benidorm might have had its TV day, but the mix of OAPs, teens and plenty of middle-aged couples are keen to get their Spanish fix. This sun-soaked silliness is the perfect antidote to the January blues.
