A Place in the Sun’s Ben Hillman gobsmacked when guest says he could ‘do better’

Ben Hillman looked a bit tense in A Place in the Sun when he struggled to find straight-talking Sue and Ali a holiday home in Spain for just £70,000.

The couple, from Weston-super-Mare, hoped to relocate permanently to Almeria and were not afraid to be very blunt with their criticisms of Ben's property choices.

At one point, he snapped and said they were "hard work" during the Channel 4 episode on Wednesday (May 12).

The pair were hoping to find a detached property with a lot of land for their beloved Alsatian Leo to roam free and instantly dismissed property one, a £73,109 two-bedroom house in Pechina, for being too small.

Property two, a detached house in Gador with an acre of land and its own orchard, was on the market for a similar price and didn't have any electricity.

There were two double bedrooms, a toilet and a shower room which could be accessed through another external door.

Ben suggested knocking through a wall in one of the bedrooms to make an ensuite through to the shower room, giving indoor access.

Sue and Ali did not look impressed and the presenter was quick to notice.

"It’s not a bad place," one of them ventured as they look around a slightly dingy-looking double bedroom with tiled floors.

Ben blasted: "Not a bad place? I’m not getting this… It’s getting better. Does that mean I could do better?"

"Yes," she replied bluntly, making Ben cry out in exasperation.

"Bloomin’ heck," he said. "You don’t ask for much, do you? Come on then let’s go outside."

Sue and Ali seemed to have lukewarm feelings towards the remaining other properties until they fell in love with number five.

The three-bedroom house in Canjayar was on the market for £68,908 and needed a little bit of work but was thankfully connected to the electrical grid.

Despite it being under budget, Ali and Sue only offered £60,000.

The agent told Ben the seller would only accept the asking price and the couple would not increase the offer above £65,000.

With that offer also rejected, they returned to the UK with nothing and Ben joked it had been a fun experience.
