What a Carry On this Easter on ITV3: Easter Monday

ITV3 haven't let us down this Easter! The channel, which now feels like the home of all things Carry On, is showing some fantastic classic Carry Ons over the Easter weekend.

There are back to back Carry On films on the channel from Good Friday, so here, without further ado, is the all important ITV3 Carry On Schedule for Easter Monday!

07.25 - 0915 - Carry On Dick (1974)
A watershed film for the series - one of the last period-themed film which takes an innuendo-laden look at the legend of Dick Turpin. The film is the last to star Hattie Jacques, Barbara Windsor and Sid James and the last to be written by the legendary script writer Talbot Rothwell. 


09.15 - 11.05 - Carry On Abroad (1972)

Time for one of my very favourites in the series as the gang depart for a four day trip to the Spanish island of Elsbells for the most disastrous package holiday ever! All the regular 1970s faces are present for this non-stop, laugh a minute fun fest! Stand out performances from Sid and Joan, Kenneth Connor and June Whitfield as well as the wonderful Peter Butterworth as the stressed out hotelier Pepe, or is it Mario?! This film also features Charles Hawtrey's Carry On swansong.

11.05 - 13.00 - Carry On Up The Khyber (1968)

1968 was probably the most successful year for the series with two of its biggest hits produced as ever at Pinewood Studios. Carry On Camping came top of the charts in 1969 but first came Up The Khyber, a wonderful tribute to all things British. Set in Victorian-era India, it focuses on the Third Foot and Mouth regiment, or the Devils in Skirts! Sid James is on fine form as Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond with Joan Sims as his wife Lady Joan. Kenneth Williams has the role of a lifetime as the Khasi
