A Place in the Sun recently introduced its newest presenter Leah Charles-King to the Channel 4 property programme. Leah will be a familiar face to viewers as she had a career in the music industry before becoming a successful children’s TV presenter. However, the former CITV host has now turned her attention to property and will be helping a number of house hunters find their dream homes abroad.

However, in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Leah spoke about making her A Place in the Sun debut.

She went on to address how she has dealt with “fussy” house hunters while filming for the Channel 4 series.

Speaking about when a guest doesn’t like a property, Leah began: “I’ve had that about three times now.

“So, yeah, I have had that actually, a few times when we have walked into a property, and they’ve gone ‘I hate it’

Leah continued: “In fact, in the first episode that’s being shown. The second property [we visited], the lady, Carrie, didn’t like it.

“So, if they don’t like it, then I’m not going to flog a dead horse as they say.

“It’s like, ‘fine, you don’t like it, let’s find you somewhere better’.”

The presenter, who has filmed a few episodes so far, explained she has loved meeting all her house-hunters.

“There’s just so much banter and so much fun,” Leah added.

“I really am interested [to learn] about their family, their friends, their lifestyles and what they want.

“I work really hard with the team to make sure that, that happens as much as possible and that they’re also looked after whilst they’re with us.”

Leah went on to discuss what it has been like when filming for the property programme.

She said she hopes viewers enjoy watching her episodes as much as she has enjoyed shooting them.

“It’s always drama,” the host admitted. “I think in every episode I’ve done so far, there’s some kind of drama that happens but it always turns out well.

“I’ve seen quite a few of the episodes we have shot so far, and even from me watching as a viewer I’ve been entertained.

“So, I hope that the audience enjoys them as much as I’ve enjoyed filming them.”

Ahead of filming, Leah explained she suffered from anxiety when it came to travelling abroad for the show.

“I have a generalised anxiety disorder so there are those things to navigate, of course,” she said.

“Having to travel, obviously within a pandemic and all the things that go with it do increase the anxiety but I’m just making sure that I’m taking care of my well-being.

“Being back on camera that’s actually my safe space, believe it or not, that’s actually where I feel most comfortable.”

A Place in the Sun airs weekdays at 4pm on Channel 4.
