Red Dragons Alan “Iceman” Warriner on set for ITVs Benidorm Sitcom
Former World Grand Prix Champion & World No 1 Alan Warriner ‘The Iceman’ has been signed up for series 7 of ITVs Sitcom ‘Benidorm’ to help out on Darts related filming for episode 3 of the popular TV series. Alan the CEO of The PDPA said ‘ It was an absolute pleasure to be invited to help out with the filming of ITVs popular Sitcom Benidorm Series 7, I was asked to spend some time over there on set in Benidorm during some filming in April and will also go out sometime in May to finish episode 3 which features the return of ‘The Oracle’ Johnny Vegas in a Darts competition with other cast members in the Neptune’s Bar’.
The popular ITV sitcom asked ’The Iceman’ to help out with some Darts related filming which involves making sure the on screen Darts looks fun and authentic as well as being the body double in throw for ‘The Oracle’ Johnny Vegas. Benidorm which is filmed in ‘Neptune’s Bar’ Morgan’s Tavern and ‘The Solana Hotel’ Sol Pelícanos Ocas in Benidorm started filming for series 7 started in early April and will take around 3 months to complete.
Creator and writer Derren Litten ‘Catherine Tate Show’ wanted the Darts scenes to look authentic and decided to get The Iceman on board. The new series will be screened in early 2015. You will need an eagle eye to see ‘The Iceman’ but I am sure you will recognise the arm, hand and throw. All the cast and staff on set were absolutely brilliant and made me feel very welcome, the very early and long days were certainly hard work I have to say. But it was well worth it, and to see how things pan out as the days progress was a treat to see. The show will be very funny I can say with absolute honesty, the cast really put everything into it.
