Newbury man to feature in Channel 5 documentary tomorrow night (Tuesday)

A NEWBURY man who gave up his life in the UK to live it up in the Spanish sun will be featuring in a new Channel 5 documentary series this week.


Dave Dennis swapped Wash Common for Benidorm in 2006 and his story will feature in Channel 5’s new docusoap series Bargain-Loving Brits in the Sun, airing tomorrow night (Tuesday) at 8pm.

The series follows the lives of a number of ex-pats in the popular Spanish holiday resort - including bar-owner Mr Dennis who works a number of jobs to support his wife and two-year-old son, Jamie.

As well as running The London Bar, 36-year-old Mr Dennis also rents and sells apartments, ferries tourists and ex-pats to and from the airport, and also runs his own removals business.

Not unaccustomed to working 12-hour days, six or seven days a week the former Park House School pupils said he does not regret his move to the sun.

“It’s been hard work,” he said.

“There has been times when there were seven of us living in a two-bed apartment.

“I don’t regret it at all though.

“I’ve worked hard to get the lifestyle now with a nice villa and Jacuzzi.


“The people here are really nice too. There’s a great community.

“I do miss the green parks in England and think how different it’s going to be for my son growing up over here but we’re really settled over here now.”

Bargain-Loving Brits in the Sun will air on Channel 5 tomorrow night (Tuesday) at 8pm.
