Channel Five features local restaurant

FILMING: The Channel Five crew filming at ‘Our plaice in the sun’.

DEBBIE and Paul who own “Our plaice in the sun” have found their own place in “Bargain-loving Brits in the sun.”

They opened their Albir fish restaurant in September 2015 and last Friday began home deliveries. And they took the first steps in the new venture under the watchful gaze of a film crew from Channel Five’s series, “Bargain-loving Brits in the sun.”

The programme, which follows the lives of Brits who leave the UK to make new lives on the Costa Blanca and Benidorm, has dedicated followers out here as well as back home. They will be happy to learn that filming the second series is now underway, hence the sequences in “Our plaice in the sun.”

Debbie and Paul won’t be delivering very far to begin with, just to the nearby Miramar campsite where they also live and at present the service is limited to Fridays. It’s still very much in the pilot stage, Debbie told the Euro Weekly News but if it takes off she and Paul will be widening their scope.

And it certainly seems that it will take off, as the news soon got around and they had 40 orders on their first day, Debbie told the Euro Weekly News.
The Channel Five crew will be back in September after processing the sequences they have filmed so far, Debbie explained. She was keen to see if she and Paul end up on the cutting-room floor but will have to wait until the programme airs in January to find out.

And for fans who are hooked on “Bargain-loving Brits in the sun,” we can let you in on a little secret: a third series is already in the pipeline.
