TV STAR Shane Richie has been staying at an Isle of Wight holiday park to film his new show — and he liked it so much he brought his family back for a holiday.

The 55-year-old actor and singer swapped Walford for Whitecliff Bay to film the Channel 5 TV series, Caravanning with Shane Richie.

The holiday park will feature in the final episode of the four-part series, which will be broadcast at 9pm on Friday, November 8.

It will see Shane, who stayed in Whitecliff Bay's suitably-named 'rockstar' accommodation, and a special guest embracing Island life after escaping the London rat race.

They got stuck into life at the park, playing bingo with the locals and spending an evening under the stars enjoying an alfresco film at the outdoor cinema.

The other three episodes will see Shane embark on caravanning adventures in North Wales, Devon and Yorkshire.

Shane said: “This series has been such fun to be a part of and Whitecliff Bay is a great park — I even took my family back for a weekend break after filming.”

Away Resorts’ head of sales and marketing, Laura Miller, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to welcome TV legend Shane and the Channel 5 film crew to our park. We had great fun hosting him, he's an absolute character.

“We’re even more delighted, however, to hear he loved his trip so much he has since returned. They are welcome back at Whitecliff Bay anytime.”
