A fly-on-the-wall TV series shows how hammered tourists regularly need medical treatment.

The Spanish show captures life on the wards of a hospital on the Costa Blanca which is popular with British visitors.

In one episode two British women are taken to the hospital in Torrevieja after a suspected drinks session, with one suffering from a head injury.

Neither of the women can recall what happened before they are seen falling asleep in their hospital beds.

When asked why she was bleeding, one of the women, from Scotland, says: “I don’t know” before telling her nurse how beautiful he is.

Her pal then starts dancing with nurse Rico to “celebrate divorcing her husband”.

TV channel Cuatro writes in its press release: “We are sure they will wake up with a good hangover.”

One local wrote on social media: “This is shameful. They come to the country to abuse our health system.

“Why are the British treated as first-class citizens? If they were Latina or Spanish they would probably be kicked out of hospital.”

Another said: “Now that they voted for Brexit, I hope they are made to pay.”

But others backed the women. One supporter said: “I don’t think it’s nice that they laughed at them, even if they’re drunk and are especially as they are older.”
