About The Show
The Hoff, plays Ross, a hilarious hedonist. He’s Ibiza’s top 80’s DJ who doesn’t realize a new decade has dawned, disco is out, a new club scene is in.
He tries to keep up with the times and with Mandy, his new younger girl-friend (Kim Tiddy, from ‘The BillHollyoaks’), but matters are complicated when his teenage daughter Penny (Stephanie Webber From TV’s ‘The Voice’) arrives to stay. Father and daughter haven’t seen each other for three years, since a messy divorce. No longer a demure school girl, but a wild child who quickly falls for Rik, the holiday rep (Shane Richie Junior).
It’s the story of two generations colliding, as a badly behaved parent, tries to control a wild child teenager! This hilarious hit fest is also a touching father and daughter drama, set against the holiday island background of Ibiza!
