A Place in the Sun fans 'appalled' by couple's 'embarrassing' stunt at end of property tour | The Sun
A Place in the Sun viewers were left irritated after a couple on the property show made an extremely "cheeky offer" for a stunning stone house.
The two potential buyers tried their chances, but were ultimately rejected by the seller.
A Place in the Sun house hunters Malcolm and Annette left fans unamused when they appeared on the show and decided to make a low offer on a fantastic property in Almeria in South-East Spain, with viewers promptly dubbing them “embarrassing”.
Channel 4 presenter Leah Charles-King revealed that it was tough finding a property for the couple, who had a list of things they wanted in their future home, including space for their pets, motorbikes and a campervan.
But, in the end, the duo decided on a dreamy Stone House in Bédar, which was on the housing market for £215,746 at the time of filming.
The retired husband and wife had a budget of £200,000, but they decided to test the waters and make a “cheeky” offer to the seller.

During the episode, Annette explained to Leah: “My initial cheeky thought was £175,000, and it’s a very cheeky offer, but I feel in that sort of mood this morning,” Annette told Leah.
The host was confused about the lower offer, so she enquired further, to which Malcolm replied: “We feel that both the heating system for the hot water and the plunge pool are getting towards the end of their lives, and we would like to put in a little storage area for bikes.”
Viewers were impressed by his reasoning behind the cheap offer and took to X( Twitter) to share their opinions.

A third added: “#aplaceinthesun again…. why do they always expect the vendor to pay for their upgrade works??” (sic)
A fourth observed: “A standard ‘we want the sellers to fund our improvements’ then #aplaceinthesun.”
The £200,000 offer made by the couple was rejected, with the vendor countering by asking for £205,000.
However, Annette and Malcolm were still focused on lowballing the seller and offered £190,000, which was £25,000 below the market price.
Eventually, the property owner agreed to a sale for £200,000, with all furniture included.
Leah concluded with the pair by enquiring whether they were happy with the bargain, to which Annette grinned: “Of course I am!”
