Hundreds queue for a part in Benidorm

Part of the Benidorm TV series is filmed at Sol Pelicanos.

ABOUT 700 would-be actors queued for a chance to be an extra in the hit TV comedy Benidorm.

People of all ages, shapes and sizes were clamouring to get their five minutes of fame plus a small wage for appearing in the sixth series of Benidorm.

There were many Spanish people in the queue at the Hotel Melia Benidorm who were attracted by the chance to earn €50 a day.

The hit series has boosted Benidorm’s coffers considerably as they need to rent rooms in hotels as well as in the bars they use.

The Sol Pelicanos features in many scenes as well as Morgan’s Tavern, which is known as Neptune’s in the series. It has also inspired many more people to visit the resort to see for themselves where filming has taken place.
