Sherrie - from Street to Benidorm

Sherrie Hewson is to join ITV1 hit drama Benidorm as a new hotel boss.

Holidaymakers in the popular series will find the Solana resort has been taken over by new management when it returns next year.

And former Coronation Street star Sherrie, who also returns to discussion show Loose Women in the coming weeks, is to play "forthright" new boss Joyce Temple-Savage.

Her character, an experienced manager, aims to shake things up to transform the complex into a four-star hotel.

Sherrie, known to TV viewers for her years as Maureen Holdsworth in Coronation Street, said she was "absolutely thrilled" to be joining the series.

"I have watched and loved it from the very beginning. I am so excited about being part of such an iconic show and working with an amazing cast.

"My character is so brilliantly written that I can't wait to start filming."
