A Place in the Sun host Jasmine Harman was back on viewers’ screens on Monday afternoon, showing around guest Julie in the town of Brittany, France as she looked for the perfect home with other half, Gerry. The couple, who’ve been married 33 years, were due to retire, so it was down to Jasmine to find them their perfect holiday home. However, fans of the Channel 4 show were left feeling disappointed over the lacklustre repeat episode, keen to see new instalments instead.
Introducing the show, Jasmine said: “Today, I’m helping house hunter Julie find the holiday home of her dreams to share with her husband, Gerry.”
Due to her husband being busy with work, Julie was accompanied by her best friend Lindy searching for her dream holiday home.
“Julie has a maximum budget of £125,000 to find the dream holiday home for her and Gerry,” Jasmine explained.
Jasmine took them to the first house in the town La Grenouillere and found Julie a four-bedroom cottage.

Upon walking into the house, Jasmine asked: “Is it what you were expecting from outside?”
“Yes and no,” Julie answered. “It’s all-in-one room at the moment, I thought I’d walk into the kitchen maybe to start with and flow through to some of the rooms, so it’s a bit unexpected.”
Jasmine joked at Julie’s immediate remark: “Well, we haven’t seen the rest yet, Julie!”
The detached cottage was on the market for just over £120,000, however, Lindy interjected and said: “It just concerns me, after the brief I was given by Gerry, that, you know there is an area that we need to be looking at, village wise.”
The next three houses Jasmine took Julie to were all massive contenders for Julie, thanks to being closer to a village, huge garden areas and the upstairs/downstairs bathrooms.
This left Julie with some big decisions to make, and admitted to Jasmine: “I’ve got an exciting dilemma now.”
Jasmine then asked the all-important question: “What’s the plan then?”
“We would like to put an offer in on the blue house, to see how we start, and that would definitely then sway is us that if its Guilliers or the blue,” Julie explained.
Jasmine reminded Julie that the house was up for sale for under £120,000 and asked: “How much are you thinking of offering?”

“I’d like to try it at £102,000 and then see how the land lies,” Julie offered.
Although Julie’s offer was declined, the estate agents were willing to put forward a counteroffer of £115,000, which the Channel 4 guest said she would go away and think about.
With the show being a rerun combined with the lack of drama or purchase of a property, many viewers were left feeling frustrated.
Viewers took to Twitter to express their views on the episode, with one user writing: “Ah well, that was pretty boring, until tomorrow fellow placers #aplaceinthesun.”
A second user wrote: “Are we just making really boring episodes and show repeats now then? #aplaceinthesun.”
Some viewers were excited about the fact Julie went straight in with an offer, with another user adding: “Oh here we go. Ridiculous offer that they know will be refused #aplaceinthesun”
A fourth said: “Ahh, offer a low amount that they wont accept, sneaky #APlaceintheSun.”
A lot of other fans were annoyed by the fact Julie kept finding issues with the house regarding her husband, Gerry, with one user saying: “An offer!! I fully expected a come back with Jerry excuse #APlaceintheSun.”
Another added: “I have to speak to Jerry #aplaceinthesun.”
A Place in the Sun airs weekdays at 4pm on Channel 4.
