She tweeted: “Benidorm is totally fab. My sis Joan Collins would love to do a guest shot on it. I got her addicted!!!”
Writer Derren Litten, who had previously announced he was leaving the show, then tweeted: “Joan Collins in Benidorm??!! “I ain’t gonna let anyone else write that. Looks like I’m coming back”
Before tweeting: “Head swimming with storylines. Of course ITV haven’t announced a recommission yet. Somehow don’t think we need to worry!”
ITV have indeed yet to announce another series of Benidorm, but after a peak audience of 7.3m for the latest run, Litten might be right.
They are expected to tweet about it in due course.
