The British series, which has featured dysfunctional families, middle-aged swingers and bickering couples among the guests, has run for eight series and was first broadcast in 2007.

The US show, called The Big Package, will feature "a blue-collar Boston family on the brink of financial disaster" who holiday in a third-rate resort alongside "boisterous and crude guests" in Mexico, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A ninth series of the British comedy, created by Derren Litten, will air next year .
