A PLACE in the Sun's Jean Johansson was left speechless after a couple burst into tears – before even setting foot inside a property.
Presenter Jean was given the task of finding couple Sue and Chris their dream holiday home for Tuesday’s episode of the Channel 4 property show.
Viewers were whisked away to Limousin in France – but– it all ended in tears.
Armed with a maximum budget of £90,000, Jean knew she had a challenge on her hands, but still managed to find some properties that ticked almost all their boxes.
The host impressed the couple so much with one property, they were instantly left reaching for the tissues.
Before their property search began, Sue and Chris told Jean they were looking for a rural house with a minimum of two bedrooms.
“I will be able to get you some of those things,” Jean said.
The presenter hinted that the couple may have to make some compromises as a result of their limited budget.
Eager to get things started, Jean whisked the house hunters off to a number of properties.
However, upon arriving at the fourth property the couple were lost for words – before they’d even ventured inside.
As they stood outside the French cottage, Sue said she was “speechless”.
“Oh dear,” she remarked, as she began to well up. “That is so pretty.”
“The view!” Chris exclaimed, with Sue adding: “Yes, it’s lovely.”
“Oh, Sue, you’re welling up,” Jean commented, with Chris admitting that he was becoming tearful, too.
Thrilled with the couple’s reaction, Jean exclaimed: “I’ve made you cry – in a good way!
The presenter then asked: “What’s made you two so emotional?”
“The location,” Sue replied.
“This is a little country cottage garden that I wanted to start at the other properties, but it’s already been done.”
“It’s just picture perfect,” Chris remarked, with Sue agreeing: “It’s better than I dreamed. It looks quite large.”
Jean revealed the house was on the market for £90,000 maxing out their budget.
After looking around the inside of the property Chris and Sue still loved it, but confessed it did need some work.
However, when their property search came to an end, there was another cottage that stole their hearts.
The couple ended up buying a smaller property that had been newly renovated for just £80,000.
A Place in the Sun airs weekdays at 4pm on Channel 4.
