Backstory

Telle has casuall sex with the black lad from the falts

Series 1[]

In the first series, Chantelle arrives in Benidorm wearing a pink anorak that she refuses to remove in spite of the warm Spanish summer weather. But after taking part in the karaoke evening and bringing it to a premature close by over-heating and collapsing in the middle of a song, her reasons for keeping her coat on are revealed. Chantelle is heavily pregnant. Chantelle doesn't get on well with her Grandmother Madge Harvey (Sheila Ried), and the pair are constantly trading insults. Madge even threatens Telle by saying social services will take her child away from her. Telle often gets irritated by her younger brother Michael Garvey (Oliver Stokes) and gets her own back by teasing him, saying there's a monster in the pool. The Oracle (Johnny Vegas) tries to impress Telle during a pool game, exaggerating and making up wins he had in the past. Chantelle sees through his unnecessary competitiveness and calls him out.

Series 2[]

The Garvey's return the following year, and Chantelle has given birth to her baby, Coolio. The baby is of mixed race and Chantelle refuses to reveal the identity of his father. Telle is absent-minded regarding looking after Coolio. She often forgets about him (she'd have absent-mindedly left him at the airport shop if Janice hadn't been paying attention!) She decided to offload baby Coolio onto impromptu babysitters Martin Weedon (Nicholas Burns) and Kate Weedon (Abigail Cruttenden) for the night... and she doesn't even know the Weedon's very well! Chantelle starts to talk to Geoff more this year and they agree to go out for a drink but does not go well when Geoff gets extremely drunk and admits he is a virgin! When Geoff forgets his wristband to get into the wedding of Madge and Mel Harvey (Geoffrey Hutchings), he asks Chantelle to borrow hers but she refuses as he constantly lies all the time about being the champion of many things and got overly drunk the previous night. After the wedding ends in disaster during the Summer Special Janice asks swingers Donald Stewart (Kenny Ireland) and Jacqueline Stewart (Janine Duvitski) Chantelle and Michael.
