A Place In The Sun presenter Ben Hillman was tasked with finding the ideal property for musician Tina to retire to during this afternoon’s instalment of the Channel 4 show.
Originally from Germany, Tina moved to the UK 30 years ago and wanted to settle down in the sun after years of cruise ship touring and teaching with her family.
Describing what she was looking for in a property Tina surprised Ben by providing a very small list of must-haves, but as the search kicked off she soon changed her mind.
Arriving at the third property, Tina, who was joined by her son Jamie on her search, couldn’t help but compare it to a property she had seen earlier which she described as “homely”.
“It’s lovely,” Jamie began but Tina didn’t agree and remarked: “It feels like a hotel, what we last saw was homely but this is a bit like a hotel.”
Cutting in, a disappointed Ben said: “I’ve given you a pool and all of a sudden you say it’s a hotel.”
“You’re being fussy! Jamie save me,” joked the presenter as Jamie praised the centrally located property: “I really like it, I’ve think you’ve done a good job.”
Despite her initial flexibility Tina proved to change tact once she saw the properties and even questioned the main selling point of the apartment arguing that the other property was more central.
Tina still looked round the property but Jamie quickly observed: “I think she may have already made her decision.”
Agreeing, Tina remarked: “It’s too small it’s just not big
