Couple buy the third house they have EVER looked at on Location Location ...

A young family desperate to escape their £2,000 London rental flat burst into tears when they found out they'd bought their 'dream' home - only the third property they've ever looked at.

Mark and Rachael, originally from New Zealand, lived in a rental flat in Wimbledon, south west London, with their young son Matthew.

But the pair dreamed of buying their own home and, despite never having visited a property before, ended up nabbing the third house they'd ever seen.

Calling it their 'first proper home', the young family, who were five months pregnant with their second child on the show, found their ideal house on tonight's Location, Location, Location.

During the show, presenters Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer attempted to help the young family find a new home in Surrey.

The couple needed serious help, having lived in pricey rented accomodation in London for years. 

After a whirlwind romance that saw them engaged within four months of meeting, three years on Rachael and Matthew are keen to secure their first family home.    

They revealed that singing a romantic duet of Aqua's Barbie Girl one night made them both realise they'd found 'the one'.

The £440,000 house may appear modest from the outside, but it boasts four bedrooms, several bathrooms, a family room and a lovely open plan kitchen

The couple were keen to move to commuter hub Woking, but seemed to have an ever-growing list of desires, which included four bedrooms, a big garden, an open-plan kitchen, a 'man cave' for Matthew, a safe cycle route to the station, good schools and a downstairs bathroom. 

And Phil and Kirsty were stunned that they hoped to get all of that for £450,000.   

But Kirsty was convinced she could deliver, telling the couple: 'I'm not knocking Woking, but Wimbledon to Woking is not your dream.' 

Mark admitted that while it isn't the 'dream move', he said it would mean they got more for their money than if they stayed in the capital.

Though they'd never been to any house viewings before, Mark and Rachael were quick to judge the first two properties on the programme - but the third well and truly wooed the pair
