A Place in the Sun is to return to Channel 4 this November for a brand new 15-episode series.
TV and Radio Presenter, Leah Charles-King will make her debut appearance this season as she joins the team of property experts to help house-hunters find their dream holiday homes.
Leah and her family have been buying, renovating and then selling properties for profit, in the UK for many years. Leah found she had a natural flair at it and has a passion for property, helping numerous people find their dream homes.
Leah said, “I’m so excited to be joining the A Place in the Sun family! I've been watching the show since it began and I feel especially privileged to be working on such an iconic programme. Landing this dream gig has been life changing for me as 9 years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar and I didn’t think I’d work in television again because of the stigma towards mental illness. It proves there is life after diagnosis. My story is one of tenacity and overcoming adversity; and A Place In The Sun has given me a new hope.”
Leah’s first assignment is helping retired teachers Carrie and Steve find their dream property in the town of Islantilla on Spain’s Costa de la Luz. With a budget of £110,000 they’re looking for a two-bedroom apartment as close to the beach as possible, where they hope to while away the winters.
For the rest of the team, Jasmine, Jean, Lee, Danni, Laura, Ben and Scarlette, will be jetting off to Crete, Costa Blanca, the Algarve and many more beautiful locations in their quest to find our house-hunters their very own Place in the Sun.
