Hello again campers!

There'll be sauce aplenty when Dale Winton reunites the Hi-De-Hi! gang ...

Nostalgia, celebs, tears and laughter... what more could you want? Each morning this week, Dale Winton presents Stars Reunited, hosting get-togethers for the casts of five much-loved TV shows.

Of course, being Dale, he'll want to know all the behind-the-scenes gossip from each programme. He'll also be asking the stars what they're been up to now, finding out about their funniest and most embarrassing memories, and surprising each cast with a mystery guest.

All Creatures Great And Small, Nationwide, Blue Peter and Tomorrow's World all feature in the series, but Tuesday's show should provide a saucy highlight when Dale says a big, camp hello to the stars of Hi-De-Hi!, the nostalgic Fifties-set comedy that ran on screen from 1981 to 1988 and followed the goings-on at Maplin's holiday camp. We checked out the stars Dale will be meeting...

RUTH MADOC: Played: Formidable but lovelorn organiser Gladys Pugh, who greeted guests with her trademark 'Hello Campers'.
After Hi-De-Hi!: TV roles have included BBC drama Oliver's Travels and Jack Of Hearts and she has been on stage in Pickwick: The Musical and 42nd Street. In 2001, she played widow Mrs Hans in the film Very Annie Mary. Lives in Cambridgeshire with her second husband and has two children.
She says: 'During Hi-De-Hi! my mother, a hospital matron, made sure I didn't get big-headed. She'd make me empty the bedpans whenever she could!'

PAUL SHANE: Played: Ted Bovis, the gruff, beer-swilling comic with the teddy-boy quiff.
After Hi-De-Hi!: Comic roles in You Rang, M'Lord? and Oh, Doctor Beeching!, which both featured Su Pollard and Jeffrey Holland (Hi-De-Hi's Spike). He has appeared in Holby City, as Stan Ashleigh, and the 2002 movie Heartlands. Paul lives in Rotherham. A father to three daughters, his wife, Dory, died two years ago.
He says: 'I look a lot different since I played Ted - I've lost four stone. I've got a one-pack now; It's not healthy to haul all that weight about at my age.'

SU POLLARD: PLayed: Peggy Ollerenshaw, the downtrodden chalet maid who desperately wanted to become a yellowcoat.
After Hi-De-Hi!: Played parlourmaid Ivy Teasdale in You Rang, M'Lord? and ticket-clerk Ethel in Oh, Doctor Beeching! She has done stand-up comedy with The Su Pollard Show and has appeared in countless pantos including Pinocchio and Aladdin. Su's single and lives in north London.
She says: 'Hi-De-Hi! made me - I've not looked back since. Before I got the part I'd just lost at Opportunity Knocks to a singing Jack Russell!'

NIKKI KELLY: Played: Sylvia, the gravel-voiced, leggy blonds temptress with the shortest shorts at Maplin's.
After Hi-De-Hi!: Mainly stage work - most recently as the Wicked Witch in Wizard Of Oz and Lady Honoria Dedlock in Dickens' Bleak House. Also appeared as Janie in The Upper Hand. She's currently working on a sci-fi film called Messages. Nikki's single and lives in Hertfordshire.
She says: 'Shorts weren't fashionable for the Fifties setting of Hi-De-Hi! I just liked the way they looked. Each year I let them get shorter until they almost disappeared!'
