Hola!

Benidorm SOS (Same Old Shit)
 

Oh my goodness, varda the bleach job without toner on this woman!


Love is like a butterfly... tattoo.
 

Taken from the 17th Floor of the Don Pancho Hotel.

It was by accident that we came across the filming of ITV's Benidorm. We were just walking down one of the side streets, minding our own business, when we were stopped in our tracks by a familiar voice in dramatic tones saying:

"Mother! Where have you been? I've been worried sick!"

I peered through the lattice fence and saw Janice and the film crew. They had to reshoot that scene as they had picked up my voice telling Carmen to come and take a look. We were ushered away by the film crew to a place where we could take photographs of the actors leaving.  I sent Carmen back to the hotel to fetch the camera, she came back 20 mins later puffing and blowing like a grampus, having missed seeing Mateo, Donald, Jacqueline and Sherrie Hewson. So no photographs of them unfortunately, but we stayed a while longer and was rewarded. 

  
A rear shot of Kenneth wearing hot pants and ugg boots. Who is that over there in the corner making herself a cup of tea? Lets take a closer look!
 
Can you see who it is yet?
 
Who the frigg is Touché Turtle? Yes, It's the lovely Madge.

  1. I do hope that Carmen had some free time to hit the shops. It looks like a shopper's paradise there!

    1. But there is no Super Duper Mart - that's for sure!

    2. Benidorm is a shoppers paradise LX, endless streets of shops consisting entirely of tat. I was stood behind a woman in a queue, she was buying a tall ceramic Swiss style house drink dispenser that had a tap on the front of it. Do people in Spain often pour drinks from ceramic Swiss houses? Strange unexplainable Spanish tat.

  2. Now that's a proper holiday experience. Sod trecking up Machu Picchu. I'd rather spot someone from off of the telly any day. Once in Black pool I saw Dot Cotton and Margot Leadbetter on a beach together. Not even watching some Glaswegians having a punch upon the prom bettered it. Glad yer back. Did you bring the sun?

    1. I know what you mean. Several years ago we sailed the Panama canal on the Ocean Village, I was bored shitless. I remember watching it on telly Margot and Margery or something similar, old biddies on the run, best thing they ever did. I shall scour That's Entertainment tomorrow and buy the DVD if it's available.

    2. Dot Cotton and Margot Leadbetter TOGETHER?

      And in BLACKPOOL on top of all that?

      I may faint.

    3. Yes it's called Margery and Gladys I'd forgotton all about this little gem. Thanks Ivy. Though, I won't be paying £25 for it.

    4. Margery and Gladys? I had no idea this film existed.

      I learn something new everyday at Clutter From The Gutter.

  3. I'm SO envious that you saw Kenneth wearing hot pants and Ugg boots AND I'm actually JEALOUS that you saw MADGE!

    Holidays don't get any better than THAT.

    1. I thought Kenneth, Madge and Donald were rather standoffish they didn't even look once at their adoring fans, well to be fair Madge did raise her coffee cup and smiled at us before heading back on set. Sherrie Hewson and Mateo were great they came over and chatted, posed for pictures and gave autographs.

    1. No, but he did give me the fanny gallops, like a clam shell opening and closing.

    1. Can you imagine the size of me if I hired one of those and didn't walk for two weeks? The lazy bastards.

    1. She performs in the pubs and club around the new town area, I avoid that place at night like the plague! *shudders* Yes, she's still opening bottles of beer with her magic vag.

    2. Do the punters drink from those bottles after she tosses them into the crowd?

      Delete
    3. The opening of the bottle is her finale which ends up with beer foam spraying out from between her legs. It's not a pretty sight, she must be at least Madge's age. I don't know if the punters drink from the bottles afterwards, but I did notice quite a few old men go straight to the toilet soon after her performance. Are you thinking about going into cabaret with a similar act?

    4. She learned everything she knows from me.
