In one place host Lee Jugurnath was stunned by a contestant he had chosen as “claustrophobic”.
Channel 4 show star Harriet sticks the knife further as she explains how the pad “wasn’t doing it for me” in Spain – before refusing to step further.
Lee was tasked with finding the perfect apartment in the Mediterranean with a budget of £110,000.
After being told that his first selection was “too small” and “needed to be updated” Lee pushed the boat out with a second property, which had three bedrooms and a balcony.
Yet the A Place In presenter, a property developer by trade, was baffled by the property hunter’s response as she said: “No, definitely not. It sounds claustrophobic.
“I know what you’re saying it’s a big living space, but I can see the kitchen from here and if I take that wall out there’s no kitchen left.
“It’s still too small, and I don’t like arches and small rooms.”
When the host, 34, asked if he could show her more, she declined and insisted it was “not doing it” for her.
With a total of five properties to show, the chain’s experts usually manage to get thumb-ups from customers on at least one.
However it was not because none fit the bill.
Harriet thanks Lee for her efforts but confirms that she will not make an offer.
Meanwhile, Lee, who joined the show this year, hasn’t had any good luck in recent episodes, and was left the same way when a couple cut their tour short.
On a recent episode of the Channel 4 show, Lee met Mark and Karen in Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca, Spain.
The couple had a budget of £150,000 and hoped to find their dream home after deciding to relocate permanently to the area for early retirement.
The first property was a three-bed semi-detached villa with one bedroom, roof top solarium and a tiled front terrace, as well as access to a large communal pool.
However, as soon as she stepped inside, Karen wasn’t impressed, saying: “It’s a little small.”
Lee then asked: “Do you want to take a look at the rest of the property or not?”
Karen replied: “No, not really,” before Mark admitted: “It’s not for us.”
Lee said he would take notes on board before telling the camera: “Oh dear, it wasn’t the start I was hoping for.”
The rest of the search didn’t go much better, the couple couldn’t find what they were looking for and decided not to propose to either of them.
