BARGAIN LOVING BRITS GIVEN BUMPER ORDER BY CHANNEL 5

Channel 5 has commissioned a 40x60' series of Bargain Loving Brits In The Sun for daytime, plus recommissioned a 8x60' peak time version, and commissioning Bargain Loving Brits for a third 6x60' series.



Bargain Loving Brits in the Sun explores the lives of the Brits who’ve swapped the damp and grey of the UK for a new life in the UK’s most popular holiday destination, Spain.



In the new peak time series, Bargain Loving Brits in the Sun, will continue to take an in-depth look at the community of Britons who’ve moved to Benidorm for sun and a low-cost life.


Bargain Loving Brits by the Sea follows the army of people in the hospitality and leisure industry who battle day in, day out to give Brits the holiday of a lifetime in Northern seaside towns.



Tom Edwards, Creative Director, Red Sauce, says: “These series have been a huge hit with viewers, with the daytime version increasing the channel’s slot share by a third and beating tough competition on other channels...


"Audiences have a huge hunger right now for ‘real life soap opera’ which this series delivers by the bucket (and spade) full. Bargain Loving Brits is a production miracle. The previous run of 40 episodes were commissioned in July, began filming in August in Spain and landed in the edit in October...



"This is a real testimony to our talented production team in Manchester and our wider support team in London. With another commission, from a different channel, soon to be announced along with another likely recommission, we are delighted that Red Sauce is delivering high in volume but high in quality programming...


"We’ve made, or had commissioned, 120 hours of TV since our launch 18 months ago – we’re really pleased with this start.”



Previous episodes of Bargain Loving Brits are available on My5.
