Gavin Ramsbottom is a character from Benidorm, played by Hugh Sachs. Gavin is a camp, overweight hairdresser on holiday with his partner, Troy (Paul Bazely). He is by far the camper of the two and has a tendency to be 'bitchy'. By the second series they are married. In the fourth series he returns with colleague Kenneth while Troy's at home to be with his dying father. In the fifth series Gavin returns alone to visit Kenneth as he and Troy had an argument, possibly ending the relationship. Troy however returns in the eighth series to take over the lease from Kenneth in the Solana's hair salon named Blow & Go. He keeps Kenneth and Liam on as the hairdressers, and as a friendly gesture to console his friend Jacqueline after the death of her husband Donald, he lets her become a partner in his business.
