Benidorm star Sherrie Hewson has said we should "never say never" when it comes to seeing the show return for new episodes.

Although creator Derren Litten has insisted that the Spain-set comedy series, which aired its final season in 2018, won't be making a comeback, Sherrie – who played hotel manager Joyce Temple-Savage in the ITV show – isn't ruling out a return for the show, saying she wouldn't hesitate to reprise her character if the opportunity presented itself.

"Benidorm was the most amazing job," she told The Mirror in a new interview.

"We were out there for six months of the year for 10 years. Everyone who came out didn't go home. They paid for their own hotels so they could stay longer. We had the best time.

"I've had the best telly career ever and that ended with Benidorm, and it's still on telly every day," Sherrie continued.

"I'd be back in a flash if Derren brought it back. I've told him that."

During the interview, Sherrie also addressed a potential return for the series, noting that its recent arrival on Netflix has re-sparked fan excitement over the idea.

"Never say never," she went on enthusiastically. "I never go two steps without somebody stopping me saying they were thrilled it's on Netflix."

As well as Hewson, Benidorm starred the likes of Jake Canuso, Tim Healy, Downton Abbey's Siobhan Finneran, comedian Johnny Vegas, The Morning Show's Bel Powley, Inside No 9's Steve Pemberton and Gavin and Stacey's Sheridan Smith across its decade-long run.

Benidorm seasons 1-10 are available to watch on Netflix now.
