Benidorm star Sherrie Hewson has teased that the much-loved British sitcom could return to our screens – but not as a TV series.

Sherrie, 73, played Joyce Temple-Savage in six series of the ITV show, which ended in 2018 after more than a decade.

While Benidorm ended six years ago, the comedy, about holidaymakers and staff at all-inclusive Solana hotel in the Spanish seaside resort, has found a second life on Netflix.

Due to the show’s continued success on the global streaming platform, Sherrie said she would love to turn it into a movie, starring all the previous colorful cast members, including Steve Pemberton and Johnny Vegas.

Reflecting on Benidorm’s continued popularity, Sherrie told ITV’s Good Morning Britain: ‘Everyone in the world is watching it now. I mean, everyone stops on the street and says we just want it back.”

Musing on whether Benidorm would come back, she said: ‘It would make a film, I think, and you could bring together people from all over who have ever been to Benidorm and their stories.

‘I think it would be brilliant, and it would be two and a half hours instead of half an hour.

‘I think it would be very funny. So I’m up for that.’

The soap star added that creator Derren Litten “loves the idea,” adding, “It’s not for me to say. He is a brilliant writer and I know he would write the most beautiful movie.

“The music makes me smile and in these times we live in, you need it.”

A film from Benidorm would follow in the footsteps of fellow British shows including Downton Abbey and The Inbetweeners, which have both made the leap to the big screen.

In 2018, Derren confirmed that Benidorm had ended X. He wrote: ‘Yes folks, it’s true. After months of speculation, I can finally confirm that series 10 of Benidorm was the LAST EVER.”

Cast member Tony Maudsley, who played Kenneth Du Beke, described the news as ‘very sad’ and suggested Benidorm’s conclusion was unexpected.

He wrote: ‘We also thought we were starting a new series but @itv surprised us and ended up calling otherwise.’

If Benidorm is made into a film, it wouldn’t be the only British classic to get a reboot with a twist.

In May, it was announced that Gavin and Stacey would return this year for a one-off Christmas special.

The show last aired in 2019 for a one-off festive episode that ended with a cliffhanger that saw Nessa, played by Ruth Jones, get down on one knee to propose to Smithy, played by James Corden.

Benidorm is available to stream on Netflix.
