Syd Little and The Krankies are among the celebrities taking part in the third series of The Real Marigold Hotel. The stars will be ‘road-testing retirement’ in Udaipur.
Also taking part are Selina Scott, Susan George, Stephanie Beacham, Peter Dean, Bob Champion and I’m A Celebrity’s Stanley Johnson.
Series two of The Real Marigold Hotel, which was broadcast on BBC One earlier this year, was watched by an audience of more than five million people.
David Clews, creative director of programme-makers Twofour, said: ‘We’ve got a brilliant line up of famous faces checking into The Real Marigold Hotel.
‘They’re a fabulous and funny mix of characters, honest and open about their personal stories, and all of them excited to explore what retirement has to offer in the vibrant and beautiful city of Udaipur.
‘We’ve got our first married couple too, [Krankies Ian and Janette Tough] which adds a brand new dynamic. It’s going to be the best series yet.’
Earlier this year it was reported that 74-year-old Little has been serving burgers at his wife’s restaurant in Fleetwood, Lancashire. He previously appeared in Masterchef in 2015.
The Krankies – both 70 – hit the headlines a few years ago when they revealed their colourful sex lives as swingers in their 1980s heyday.
Four hour-long episodes of The Real Marigold Hotel will air next year.
