Blakeway North has won a recommission for Channel 5 series Bargain Loving Brits in the Sun.

The eight-part series, which rated 18% above C5’s slot average, hits the screens on Thursday at 8pm. It was filmed in and around Benidorm and the Costa Blanca.

Sarah Murch, MD and Executive Producer at Blakeway North, said: “This is our sixth Benidorm-based series. Our Manchester-based teams love heading out to Spain to work.

“The ‘Bargain Brits’ we film with are a wonderful bunch with some great stories. This series is full of incident, warmth and big characters. We are really hoping for more bumper audiences so we can return to Benidorm for more fun in the sun!”
