Long-running ITV sitcom Benidorm is hitting the road and will be touring the country in the form of a stage show. 

The popular show, about the misadventures of staff and holidaymakers in the Spanish resort, has come to an end according to creator Derren Litten after ten years on the air. 

But the show is set to live on in the form of a stage show which will tour the UK starting later this year. 

And while it won’t be coming to Portsmouth, as of yet anyways, but Benidorm fans will be able to get their fix in Southampton and Brighton. 

Creator Derren Litten announced that the show had come to an end via Twitter.
