The Chuckle Brothers have been spotted filming scenes for the upcoming tenth series of 'Benidorm' with series regular John Challis
The Chuckle Brothers are set to appear in the new series of 'Benidorm'.
The comedy duo of Barry and Paul Chuckle were spotted filming scenes in the sunny Spanish town with John Challis for the tenth series of the ITV show.
Paul was photographed sitting opposite John on a balcony at a bar whilst Barry walked towards the table.
And Paul had taken to social media to share a picture with John on set.
He captioned it: "Me n #boycie ... Who looks the happiest @BeingBoycie ? (sic)"
It is not known if the brothers were just filming a cameo for the show or if they will be making an extended appearance.
It comes after it was announced that legendary comedy duo Gareth Hale and Norman Pace would be joining 'Benidorm' as undercover detectives investigating Lesley (Tim Healy).
In Series 10 - which will air on screens in 2018 - Shane Richie will also return for four episodes as entertainer Sammy Valentino whilst John Challis' character Monty Staines will become a series regular.
Show creator, writer and executive producer Derren Litten said: "When I wrote the first script of 'Benidorm' I had no idea it would change my life so dramatically over the next 10 years.
"As I put the finishing touches to the 74th episode I am so grateful to our fans and to ITV for giving 'Benidorm' the best possible home we could hope for. Here's to the next 10 years!"
And Saskia Schuster, ITV's Comedy Commissioner, added: "'Benidorm' is very much part of the ITV family with viewers taking these wonderful characters to their hearts.
"Show creator, writer and exec producer Derren Litten has some great plans for the tenth series and it's a real treat to welcome Hale & Pace and Shane Richie to the Solana resort."
Joyce Temple Savage (Sherrie Hewson), Mateo (Jake Canuso), Liam (Adam Gillen), Kenneth (Tony Maudsley) and Jacqueline (Janine Duvitski) will all be returning.
