After some thought, they told Jean they'd be making an offer. Carl said: "I am afraid it is going to have to be a cheeky offer," to which Jean reminded them that the property was listed for just under £95,500.
Carl continued: "We are cash buyers and we are going to go in at £80,000," leaving Jean to add: "The agent indicated that she would like to hear offers around £90,000. And you two are rocking in from Warrington and putting in an offer of £80,000!"
The couple laughed before Vicky noted: "If you don't ask then you don't get do you at the end of the day." Unfortunately for Vicky and Carl, their offer was rejected and the agent came back with a counteroffer of £95,000.
Keeping their cheeky northern charm, the couple went back once again with a counteroffer of £93,000 which was accepted. But viewers were left stunned that the couple first offered £80,000 which was £15,000 below the asking price.
