Review

As Benidorm goes, this one’s a classic. Hoity Joyce takes a tumble in more ways than one and is soon elbowed out by Janey – Crissy Rock returning as the Solana’s original scouse manageress. Geoff parades his new Romanian girlfriend, who believes he’s a millionaire, while Jacqueline hollers through singing lessons with a cocktail pianist (none other than Bobby Crush).

But the ice in the shaker is Joan Collins, back as Solana CEO Crystal Hennessy-Vass. Unlike her debut last year, she features throughout this episode, interacting with many more characters. She hits it off with Blow & Go double act Kenneth and Liam, and there’s a startling pay-off with Geoff (Johnny Vegas). Only in Benidorm!

Summary

CEO Crystal (Joan Collins) is back, and she's about to turn Joyce's world upside down. Taken out to lunch, the Solana manager learns the staff budget is being cut by half, and that she's being replaced by someone cheaper - her predecessor Janey (Crissy Rock). The Oracle's Romanian fiancee Ionela arrives in Benidorm, believing he's a successful businessman, while Glynn asks Jacqueline to take some singing lessons so she can perform with him and his bandmates at Neptune's. Kenneth and Liam launch a Blow & Go makeover competition, which attracts some very unlikely entrants.
