Janey York is character from Benidorm, played by Crissy Rock. Janey was previously the manageress of the Solana for the first four series. She is a surly Liverpudlian who doesn't take any nonsense from the guests, or Mateo. It is often her job to organise entertainment around the hotel and the day trips too. Janey also often ends acting as spokesperson for the hotel - which means she's got quite good at apologizing without really meaning it.
Series 1 - 4 Edit
Janey is the hotel manager and cabaret M.C. at Neptune's bar. Her loud mouth comes in handy to shut the guests up when they are making to much noise. She is also very good at making money with "free trips" which turn out to just be a trick to sell juicers! Janey is also very noisy and likes to hear all the gossip about the holiday makers. Janey often had disagreements with bar man Mateo Castellano (Jake Canuso) because he is lazy. In the 4th season she hires Les Conroy (Tim Healy) who is much more hard working then Mateo. The fact he is a transvestite doesn't bother Janey and she even teases Mateo saying she wants all the staff to be transvestites!
Series 5 Edit
Janey was replaced in Series 5 by Joyce Temple-Savage (Sherrie Hewson) as manageress. Janey left to manage an all inclusive in Marbella. However this was not to her liking. Janey's daughter Carmen, was posing as a worker at Kenneth Du Beke (Tony Maudsley) Blow and Go Salon in the Solana, Joyce grew suspicious and discovered that Janey wanted to return as the manageress of the Solana Resort in Benidorm. After a final showdown Joyce agreed not to push charges and Janey was re-united with Matteo, Les and Liam in Neptune's for a final drink.
Series 7 Edit
In Series 7 Janey returned to the Solana as an outgoing manager. Joyce Temple Savage refuses to make the cuts set out by Solana CEO Crystal Hennessy-Vass (Joan Collins) therefore she re-appoints Janey as manageress! Janey reinstates the decidedly dodgy Jason Gallagher as the Solana's bar manager! It turns out that Jason is related to Janey. He finds a letter Joyce left offering her a job for a nicer hotel. She was offered the job for the improvements Joyce made at the Solona although Jason tells the other hotel it was Janey who improved the Solona therefore she is offered the job so she leaves the Solana and Joyce gets her job back.
