The new series will also introduce a new family - the Dykes, composed of father Clive (Perry Benson), mother Tonya (Hannah Waddingham) and their children Bianca (Bel Powley) and Tiger (Danny Walters).

The character of Martin Weedon (Nicholas Burns) - last seen in Benidorm's third series - will also return for the new run.

Coronation Street's Ken Morley and former Brookside star Philip Olivier have signed up for guest roles, with Matthew Kelly confirmed to return as Cyril Babcock.

Show creator Derren Litten - who has written all seven episodes of the new series - said: "I'm so excited about series six of Benidorm, probably more excited than all previous series. Apart from Dynasty series five of course - what could possibly top the Moldavian Massacre?"
