Benidorm fans were treated to one of TV's greatest popstar cameos last night, when Tony Hadley dropped by.
The (sadly former) Spandau Ballet singer belted out some of his classic hits on a boat, while characters Monty and Joyce got hitched on the ITV comedy's tenth series opener.
After the pair said 'I do', Tony appeared singing Spandau Ballet's classic 'True', followed by 'Gold'. Amazing.
Watch a clip below:
Tony is one of many famous faces who will pop up in the show this year, including Frankie Goes to Hollywood frontman Holly Johnson, T'Pau star Carol Decker and actor Nigel Havers.
Only Fools and Horses legend John Challis has also become a permanent cast member, playing dodgy property dealer Monty.
Benidorm star Sherrie Hewson said of Tony's cameo: “I said to Tony at the time, 'Oh you can actually do it [act]'.
“He said, 'Can I? I wondered if I could act' and I said 'You ought to get into it if that's what you want to do'. And then he immediately left Spandau [Ballet, his band].
“He's gorgeous, you fall in love with him anyway, because he is the most gorgeous huggy-bear man.”
