A PLACE in the Sun's Ben Hillman was left lost for words after a couple made a dramatic U-turn on three contenders.

House hunters Jo and DP were searching Nerja on Spain's Costa del Sol for their perfect home for a winter escape.

They hoped to rent the property out during the summer months to support their retirement – but Ben was soon faced with a stiff task.

His property search was soon dashed after the pair placed three contenders on the table, before taking them away in one fell swoop.

The first property was a two-bed apartment in Nerja, which came with a covered balcony overlooking some pretty communal gardens and an impressive pool.

The two bedrooms were both doubles, looked onto a glistening pool and was on the market for £226,050.

The second property, a villa in Punta Lara, was initially another home given the green light by the couple.

However, while viewing the third property, Jo dropped a bombshell that they had decided to drop all the contenders.

"We have ruled out the first apartment," Jo commented, out of the blue.

Taken aback, Ben replied: "The thing is Jo, you've just told me that you want to be in the heart of Nerja – you've just ruled out the only property we've got in the heart of Nerja."

He asked: "Is property two still a contender then?" Jo responded swiftly: "No."

Ben then looked stunned as Jo dropped another bombshell, stating: "And this is losing it, too, I think."

Ben then added: "The thing is, you go into Nerja, the prices go up, a property like this in Nerja is out of budget.

"So, obviously you want something that is unaffordable, essentially."

"And confuse us more," Jo quipped, as Ben affirmed: "No, Jo! Come on."

He later told viewers: "Gosh, I thought it was all going so well, but I think Jo just told me we've gone from potentially three contenders to zero."

Jo and DP decided they'd like to do more of their own research and stayed in Spain to find their perfect home.

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