BENIDORM star Adam Gillen is best known for playing fresh-faced holiday girl Liam Conroy – with long ginger hair and a clean shaven face.
Now, the actor who played the unexpected character in ITV’s hit series – has been spotted looking quite different from Liam ten years ago, with a huge bushy beard.
TV star Adam joined the festivities as he donned a red Santa hat and posed for pictures alongside the Coronation Street actor and former co-star Tony Maudsley.
Put on a bright smile, Adam looks very different from the shaved-headed character, a familiar face on the show.
The original clumsy character is a vacationer who has come to Benidorm to visit his father Les Conroy, who works at Solana.
In series five, Liam joins Solana’s workforce as a maintenance worker, however, in the series’ finale, the guy leaves Solana to pursue a career with Kenneth Du Beke in Blow ‘n ‘ Go Salon.
Reuniting with their good friend Tony, the couple looked as if they were having a good time.
Tony writes: “Christmas is always better when your favorite people visit. When @adam_gillen pops up, it’s like putting on a pair of cozy slippers.”
Fans are excited to see the couple back together again.
One person posted: “Awww, what a lovely photo, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to both of you”, while another said: “Bring it on both of you!”
A third added: “Merry Christmas Tony and Adam. My daughter loves to sing along to Welcome Home.”
Liam returned to the show and appeared singing a duet with Kenneth (Tony Maudsley), in the last 10 minutes of the last episode of Series 8.
This character also returned in series 10.
Benidorm is a 2007 sitcom and comedy about the lives of British expatriates at the all-inclusive The Solana hotel in central Benidorm, with hilarious consequences.
The show has an all-star cast and often features veteran stars and famous faces from British television.
Adam’s other major television credits include the role of Brian in the Channel 4 comedy Fresh Meat and Gavin in the BBC’s Prisoner’s Wives.
