JOAN Collins is bringing a touch of old-school glamour back to Spain.

The actress has been spotted soaking up the Spanish sunshine while filming scenes for the upcoming series of Benidorm.

Collins, who has just celebrated her 80th birthday, will play hotel guest Crystal in the forthcoming sixth series of the ITV show.

She will be joined on set by fellow guest stars Ken Morley – who played supermarket manager Reg Holdsworth in Coronation Street – and Loose Women’s Sherrie Hewson.

The veteran actress starred as Alexis Carrington Colby in the 1980s drama Dynasty alongside Linda Evans as her rival Krystle Carrington.

Announcing the news of her latest project on Twitter, Collins said: “Looking forward to going to Spain to be in #Benidorm.

“And I’m playing Crystal, yes I am!! But not the Dynasty one.”

The Spanish-based comedy also sees the return of regular cast members including Steve Pemberton, Siobhan Finneran and Tim Healey.

Executive producer Ben Cavey said: “Things are certainly heating up by the pool in this series, with some great new characters, as well as the return of many of our well-loved regulars.”
