Shane brings family to Bembridge


TV star Shane Richie stayed at Away Resorts’ Isle of Wight park to film a new show, and enjoyed it so much he brought his family back for a weekend break. The 55-year-old actor and singer who played Alfie Moon in Eastenders swapped Walford for Whitecliff Bay in Bembridge as part of his new Channel 5 TV series, Caravanning with Shane Richie.

The star is no stranger to the Island as he began his professional career as a bluecoat entertainer at Little Canada, which was then a Pontins holiday camp.

The show airs on Channel 5 at 9pm on Friday November 8.

Away Resorts’ Head of Sales and Marketing, Laura Miller, commented: “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, an absolute character!

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