A Place In The Sun’s Jonnie Irwin baffled as house hunter calms nerves with stolen cutlery | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Jonnie Irwin has met his fair share of house hunters since he joined A Place In The Sun over a decade ago. The Channel 4 host has spoken candidly about a bizarre moment while filming for the show when things took a slightly odd turn.
The 47-year-old confessed that some house hunters on the programme “struggle with filming”.
He admitted one particular show guest was in hysterics and full of nerves while speaking on camera.
Jonnie explained that the house hunter couldn’t stop nervous giggling during each segment so then decided to take action.
“I had a guy who kept laughing out of nerves,” Jonnie explained.

“You do get some interesting characters and the more interesting the better,” the dad-of-three explained.
“People always say to us, ‘Oh we’re not the sort of people you’re after.’
“We just want people that want to buy a house abroad. And the madness will come out in some shape or form.”
Meanwhile, the small-screen star and his fellow presenters have cause to celebrate as A Place In The Sun reached its 21st birthday last month.
