‘He said to me it’s a no brainer, so ordered a pint.’
He continued: ‘Darren is like a celebrity in Benidorm, as he’s always getting pulled up for pictures – and is just a happy lad who gets on with everybody.’
While his partner found the humour in his antics with the pair claiming they’ve been dubbed the new ‘Ant and Dec’.
