From the shaky sets of Acorn An­tiques to sun and sea in Benidorm

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR TV WEEK -

Ac­tor Kenny Ire­land’s turn as con­ge­nial swinger Don­ald in ITV’s Benidorm has made him one of the se­ries’ most recog­nis­able char­ac­ters. Along with wife Jac­que­line, pen­sioner Don­ald is a loyal fan of the allinclu­sive Solana ho­tel, al­though his frank dis­cus­sions around the pool about the pair’s ad­ven­tur­ous sex life of­ten puts his fel­low tourists off their sangria and paella. Kenny re­cently made an ap­pear­ance in day­time soap Doc­tors, as so­lic­i­tor Godfrey, but it is as part of the ensem­ble cast of Vic­to­ria Wood’s TV shows, in­clud­ing a role as Derek in soap par­ody Acorn An­tiques, that he is per­haps best known for.
