There are some new faces at Hotel Babylon when the hotel-based drama returns to our screens next week.
Joining the team after Charlie’s (Max Beesley) promotion to General Manager are his deputy Jack Harrison (Lee Williams) and Head of PR Emily James (Alexandra Moen).
Charlie’s determined to make his mark but the transition from one of the team to boss isn’t as smooth as he likes and he soon learns that his decisions aren’t always going to be popular with the Babylon employees.
Guest stars for this series include John Barrowman, Samantha Bond, Alan Davies, Paula Abdul, Anita Dobson and Bonnie Langford.
Spoilerphobes should look away now, there are further staff changes on the horizon – the hotel is going to advertising for a new manager because this is Max’s last year at Babylon.
“I’ve had a great three years working on Hotel Babylon,” he says, “but the time is right for Charlie to make a move, and there are lots of exciting new projects ahead I want to get my teeth into.”
“He’s been a fantastic character to play and I’m now really looking forward to throwing myself into new challenges, and I wish Hotel Babylon continued success in the future.”
