A Place In The Sun househunter dumped wife and asked producer for a date, reveals Jasmine Harman

A PLACE in the Sun host Jasmine Harman has revealed she was left cringing after a couple’s bust up that saw them almost split after the show. 

To make matters more awkward, the 44-year-old recalled that the 'newly-single' house hunter asked a producer to help him find a date in a mortifying follow-up chat. 

Speaking to Metro about the most embarrassing behind-the-scenes moment, Jasmine admitted she left feeling “super awkward” after the elderly couple couldn’t agree on anything during the Home and Away segment. 

The TV presenter explained of the old episode: “A really awkward moment came in the final chat when I said to them, ‘Have you two managed to come to an agreement?’

“She said, ‘Well, I still want to be at home’. He said, ‘I still want to be away’. I said, ‘So what are you gonna do?’ – and he said, ‘Well, it’s my money’. That was super awkward.”

Jasmine went on to explain that when a researcher followed up with them after the show to find out what happened post-filming, the man said that the pair had gone their separate ways. 

She added of the embarrassing call: “The gentleman said they’d split up and could our researcher help him to find an Italian girlfriend?”

Just in case you thought it couldn’t get any worse – Jasmine then said to make things even more awkward was that when she told viewers at home the pair were no longer together, it came as a surprise to the man’s wife. 

“It was broadcast and the next day, the woman phoned up the office and she said, ‘We haven’t split up, how dare you!’ 

“So that was again super awkward, because he’d told us that they’d split up, but he hadn’t told her.”

While the episode was nothing short of awkward on all counts, and Jasmine having her fair share of mishaps, she insisted the job was “very rewarding”.
