Benidorm creator and screenwriter Darren Litten has rubbished claims that the ITV comedy is set to be cancelled.
A report in The Sun claimed that “the current tenth series of Benidorm will be the last amid falling ratings,” saying that bosses at ITV have “quietly axed” the long-running sitcom set at a resort in Spain.
- Where is Benidorm filmed?
- Britain’s Got Talent producers have been to Benidorm to scout variety acts
- Who is guest-starring in Benidorm series 10?
But while ITV has yet to confirm the show’s return – a spokesman said that “no decision” has been made about a further series – Litten seems pretty confident that this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Benidorm
“Don’t make me f**king laugh,” he tweeted ahead of the new series. “I enjoyed that story after series 6. And 7 and 8 and 9…”
And apparently The Sun are running a story tomorrow on how #Benidorm has been cancelled. Don’t make me fucking laugh ???????????????????????????? (I enjoyed that story after series 6. And 7 and 8 and 9…) ????

The tenth series of the National Television Award-winning show only began airing on Wednesday 28th February. In another tweet, Litten confirmed there’ll be no more filming this year as the team heads out on a live tour, Benidorm on Stage.
