has said that she supports the idea of a Benidorm
The Janice Garvey actress believes that the success of The Inbetweeners
shows that the ITV comedy would suit a film spinoff.
She told What's on TV
: "It would be exciting, yes. We don't know if there's a movie in the pipeline but why not? If The Inbetweeners
has been a huge success, I'm sure we could be, too."
Meanwhile, she said of the show's continued triumph in the ratings
: "I think people who have stuck with it from the beginning are telling their friends and family to watch it, so it's just grown. If you talk to people they say, 'Oh I'd never seen it but then somebody told me to watch it or friends bought me the box set'. And now they've now caught up."
Finneran, who also stars in Downton Abbey
, added: "There's nothing else like it on the telly and we go out at a great time of year. We go out in February when everyone's fed up, cold, miserable, and we bring a bit of sunshine into their lives. You can sit and have a good giggle. If it's up your street you can have a good laugh at it." Benidorm
's fourth series, which features guest stars
Kate O'Mara and Matthew Kelly, begins next Friday (February 24) at 9pm.
