Tony Hadley has filmed scenes for his guest appearance in the 10th series of 'Benidorm'
Tony Hadley has landed a guest role in 'Benidorm'.
The 56-year-old Spandau Ballet singer - who competed on the 2015 series of I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' - has a cameo part in the popular ITV comedy and the 'Gold' hitmaker has already filmed his scenes for the next Instalment at the famous Sol Pelicanos Hotel.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "He has always been a massive fan and has been eyeing up a spot on the show for ages.
"After years of toing and froing with producers, he's finally bagged a guest role and it's going to be absolutely hilarious and full of surprises.
Tony appeals to women of a certain age as he was a real heart-throb back in the day."
The forthcoming series, which is expected to air next year, will also feature the Chuckle Brothers.
The comedy duo of Barry and Paul Chuckle were spotted filming scenes in the sunny Spanish town with John Challis for the 10th series last month.
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, Shane Richie will also return for four episodes as entertainer Sammy Valentino whilst 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.
