It seems like Martin Kemp isn't the only musician turned TV star from Spandau Ballet!
Spandau Ballet singer Tony Hadley has landed a guest role in ITV comedy, 'Benidorm'!
The 56-year-old Spandau Ballet singer, who competed on the 2015 series of I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!', has a cameo part in the popular ITV comedy and the 'Gold' hitmaker has already filmed his scenes for the next instalment at the famous Sol Pelicanos Hotel.
A source revealed to The Sun: "He has always been a massive fan and has been eyeing up a spot on the show for ages.
"After years of toing and froing with producers, he's finally bagged a guest role and it's going to be absolutely hilarious and full of surprises.
Tony appeals to women of a certain age as he was a real heart-throb back in the day."
The forthcoming series, which is expected to air next year, will also feature the hilarious Chuckle Brothers.
The comedy duo of Barry and Paul Chuckle were spotted filming scenes in the sunny Spanish town with John Challis for the 10th series last month.
Paul was photographed sitting opposite John on a balcony at a bar whilst Barry walked towards the table and Paul also took to social media to share a picture with John on set.
It is not known if the pair will have a cameo like Tony Hadley or whether they will be starring in the series for the duration.
It comes after it was announced that legendary comedy duo Gareth Hale and Norman Pace would be joining 'Benidorm' as undercover detectives investigating Lesley (Tim Healy).
In Series 10, Shane Richie will also return for four episodes as entertainer Sammy Valentino whilst Challis' character Monty Staines will become a series regular.
Show creator, writer and executive producer Derren Litten said: "When I wrote the first script of 'Benidorm' I had no idea it would change my life so dramatically over the next 10 years.
"As I put the finishing touches to the 74th episode I am so grateful to our fans and to ITV for giving 'Benidorm' the best possible home we could hope for. Here's to the next 10 years!"
