A Place in the Sun presenter Irwin red-faced as couple snap ‘you’ve fallen flat on your face’ and reject every property

A Place in the Sun's Jonnie Irwin was left mortified after a couple gave him some harsh critiques on the real estate show.

Farmers Fred and Susan were looking for a holiday home in Palma, Mallorca and were left less than impressed with what the property whiz had to show them.

The couple told Irwin they had a budget of £265,000 but could push it up by £10,000 for the right property.

But the host was left perplexed when viewing their first property, Fred began counting how many corners were in the house.

“This is a first for me. This is a whole new experience I’ve never had a man count corners before,” Irwin said.

Things managed to get better for Irwin as they viewed the next property.

Susan told him: "The last time me and Fred were here, we sat in that restaurant [over there] and I said I’d love to live here.”

“The emotions have set in."

Irwin replied: “You do look emotional. Let’s dry those eyes and go have a look.”

It all seemed to look up for Irwin who joked, “I fell at the first hurdle,” before Fred cruelly quipped, “you fell flat on your face”.

A shocked Irwin came back with: “Alright Fred!”

The presenter then showed them three more properties and failed to find anything to their taste.

Susan admitted: "It’s been really up and down. We’ve learnt about ourselves as well as the properties."

To which Jonnie admitted: “I’m gutted. “Fred looks like he’s going to burst into tears.”

Irwin has presented on A Place In The Sun since 2004 and is the commercial director of The Judicare Group, a business dedicated to the buying and selling of overseas properties.

A Place in the Sun airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm.
