Benidorm’s Michael Garvey star looks completely different eight years after show


Between 2007 and 2015, actor Oliver Stokes was recognisable for his role as Michael Garvey on hit showBenidorm. Throughout his time on the show, Oliver grew up on our screens and he was just 10 years old – it’s no surprise then that he looks a lot different now.

As the youngest son of Mick and Janice Garvey, Oliver’s character Michael was known for his cheekiness and singing You'll Never Walk Alone during karaoke and getting a tattoo after a night of drinking alcohol.

But eight years on, 25 year old Oliver is all grown up and sports a slick hair do and short moustache. The actor is also a doting dad to son Archie.

Over on Instagram, Oliver gives his 14,000 followers a glimpse inside his life and is often seen fishing, hiking and going on outdoor adventures with his young son.

It appears that Oliver hasn’t done any TV acting work since his Benidorm days, but around the time that he was on the show he also featured in the likes of Doctors, Casualty and The Damned United.

While he may have stepped away from the limelight, it’s clear that Oliver still looks back fondly on his Benidorm days and attended BeniCon last year where he reunited with some of his old co-stars to celebrate the show.

What’s more, the beloved TV star has also hinted that he is looking to get back into the world of acting. In a recent TikTok video, Oliver shared a series of snaps from his time on the show and told viewers that they could see him on the screen sometime soon.

“Few throwbacks of me growing up on Benidorm, and also my life now after it all, mad to think for nearly 10 years it was my life and I wouldn’t change it at all! Crazy to see how much I’ve changed since starting the show!,” he wrote.

He added: “A lot of people ask if I’d ever get back into acting, it’s been a dream of mine for years but due to circumstances in my life at the time it became impossible.

“Fortunately I’m now in a position where I’m pushing towards getting my acting career back on track so hopefully for those of you who have asked, you may see me back on the screen in the near future.”
