Benidorm the Movie set to hit the big screen in 2019

With the Lion King, Toy Story 4, Avengers and Frozen 2 all hitting cinemas in 2019, it’s sure to be a huge year for film. Now it appears you can add Benidorm the Movie to that list, too.

The stars of the Solona are set to hit the big screen with a deal close to being agreed.

Writer Derren Litten has confirmed plans are in place and has also teased that an American A-Lister wants to sit on a sunlounger and sing some songs on the Neptune karaoke.

There could be some British favourites heading for the Med with Only Fools star John Challis, Boycie in the BBC hit, and EastEnders’ Shane Ritchie keen to reprise their short-term roles.

Challis, who plays dodgy Monty Staines, told the Daily Star: "The movie will be marvelous.

"I’d like to think Monty will be on an anger management course in Alicante. I can’t wait."

Now fans want to hear if the show’s big favourites will be packing their bags before filming gets underway.

The Garveys weren’t in the final few series, with cantankerous Madge and her mobility scooter not seen for three years.

Johnny Vegas, the know-all Oracle, also has not in the programme since 2015 with his on-screen mother Noreen (Elsie Kelly) also a big favourite with fans.

Writers are keen to bring back as many much-loved characters as possible.

The show has been running since 2007 but came to an end this year leaving devastated fans heartbroken.

Litten tweeted this summer: "Crazy to think Wednesday will be the last episode of Benidorm! I created the series over 11 years ago, wrote it, guest starred in it and ended up directing it.

"It’s difficult to think what else there is to do! Thank you for watching! #MuchasGracias (sic)"

He may now have found something to occupy himself with talks "going well".
