Jonnie Irwin teases new A Place In The Sun filming location
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.

“I was standing in the garden and trying to tell him how much the house is and everytime he started talking to me he started laughing.”
The person in question decided to enter the property before rejoining the Channel 4 host.
Jonnie explained: “So eventually he had this lightbulb moment and said, ‘One second.’
“He ran into the house and ran back out with his hands in his pockets. And said, ‘Ok, go ahead.’
“Then I delivered my bit about how much the house was to buy, the age of it and all that sort of that stuff.”
Jonnie noticed the house hunter had stopped giggling when they returned to filming and quizzed him on how he managed to “cope”.
The Channel 4 presenter said: “The house hunter said, ‘Oh, I ran back into the house, found the kitchen and got a knife out the drawer. I put it into my pocket and every time I thought I’d start laughing, I’d stab myself in the hand.'”
Jonnie added that the presenters often meet very different characters when filming the property programme adding the more “interesting the individual the better”.

“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.
Jonnie first joined the programme in 2004 alongside Jasmine Harman.
Discussing how he plans to celebrate A Place In The Sun’s anniversary, Jonnie said he may even watch it back.
“How will we celebrate? I might actually watch [an episode] because I’m normally filming.”
A Place In The Sun airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm.
