A Place in the Sun’s Laura Hamilton said she was “devastated” last night when a couple flat out refused to view a “stunning” property.
The property expert was dumbfounded when the husband-and-wife, who wanted to swap the UK for the Dordogne countryside in France, refused to even enter the house.

Laura’s previous selections didn’t go down well with Karen and Alistair either, but they said the three-bedroom barn with a pool was in a “nightmare” location as they stood on the drive.
Laura, 38, told them: “I wanted to bring you to a property you said it had to have one or the other, either the pool and you were happy with a bit of work. We’re here because this has the pool and the house itself is a bit of a project for you.
“This is the house, let me tell you what you’re looking at. It’s three bedrooms and it’s currently on the market just under £157,000.”
Scottish Karen shot back: “No. No. It’s not a patch on the previous house.
Laura couldn’t convince Karen and Alistair to go inside
“And this is my nightmare. People are overlooking you. When you look here there seems to be hill walkers looking at your garden at regular intervals.”
Karen’s husband agreed and added: “I think even if this was perfect inside, it wouldn’t be for us.”
Laura interjected: “I don’t want to flog a dead horse, so if this is an outright no, we’ll leave it here,.”
She commented afterwards: “I’m devastated Alastair and Karen don’t want to look around this property.
“I understand they don’t think it’s private enough for them. I’m still a bit disappointed about their reaction to the last place.”
Viewers on Twitter didn’t take kindly to their stubborn attitude.
One said: “Ain’t seen inside yet love! ?”

Another said: “I’d refuse to help him just for those trousers alone #APlaceInTheSun”
