Cilla Black and Katie Price are both making guest appearances in the next series of 'Benidorm'
Cilla Black is to play a stripper in 'Benidorm'.
The 66-year-old presenter is to play a guest role in the ITV sitcom, which is set in the titular Spanish holiday resort, and show bosses have promised her appearance will be outrageous.
Show creator and writer Derren Litten revealed: "Cilla has basically agreed to play the oldest swinger in town and will really ham it up with a basque and suspenders, the works."
In addition to Cilla, Derren has also signed up glamour model Katie Price to make an appearance - but admitted she won't have to do much acting.
He explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I've always wanted to work with Katie so we've been in touch with her people and offered her a role playing a completely chavvy Brit abroad, getting them out for the lads and lying by the pool.
"She probably won't have to do much acting. It will probably be more sunbathing and bikini action.
"It is really exciting. Both women are great signings for the show and I can't wait to work with them. The show will be going out in the autumn and will be very special. I'm really proud of it."
Filming on the fourth series of 'Benidorm' is set to commence in the summer.
