A PLACE IN THE SUN presenter Lee Juggurnauth has set the record straight about why Channel 4 has aired a number of repeat episodes over the past few months.
As one of the newest members to join the A Place in the Sun household, Lee has helped several house hunters to find their dream holiday home abroad.

He’s traveled to many exotic countries over the course of the series and shown buyers five properties each weel in the hopes they will put down an offer on one.
In recent weeks, Channel 4 has started to air brand new episodes of A Place in the Sun.
But in the months leading up to that, they broadcast repeated episodes that had been shown before.
This left viewers frustrated, and many took to social media to complain about the repeated episodes.

The newest A Place in the Sun host, responded to the backlash in an exclusive interview with express.co.uk, insisting that the new series “is coming.”
He continued: “All I can say is thank you to everyone that has been patient, myself included because I want to see some new stuff as well.
“My friends and family are like, ‘You’re going off to do all these episodes; when are we seeing all these episodes?’ and I’m like, ‘They’re coming’.”
Discussing the latest series, which is currently airing on Channel 4, Lee said: “All I can say is they’re all really exciting.
“Italy was great; it was lovely to be out there. I had a really nice couple that came out and we were able to help them find where they wanted to be and see their journey develop.
“I think that’s the beauty of this show,” the presenter added.
Lee’s approach on the show is to always try to meet his house hunter’s criteria.
But, undoubtedly, Lee admitted that it isn’t always possible, and sometimes he doesn’t get it right.
He also revealed that there are some disagreements when filming episodes.
In one episode, starring Roz and Liz, Lee revealed that the siblings had some disagreements about the property they were looking for.
“They stayed in my mind because they were very sincere, very humble, and you could see how much it meant to them,” he said.
“And I think the beauty of seeing Roz and Liz when we were in France all together was that sibling bond, no matter how old or young you are, the bond will always be there.
“And it just showed that even though they had kids themselves… grown-up kids, they were fundamentally still sisters.
“So, to see that dynamic, it was very emotional.”
“And also, it was one of those things where we were looking at properties and they were very specific and what they wanted,” Lee shared.
“They didn’t want to live in the same house [in France], so you find a house and there’s always a guest house next to it.
“So, you know, they were like ‘Who’s going to be in the guest house?’ because I guess it was going to be smaller.
“But they’d obviously discuss who was having what house.”
Lee joined the Channel 4 show in April last year as a property and interior design expert – and has become a new fan favourite.
However he has received some online hate.
Back in May he broke his silence on the “disheartening backlash” he has received from “haters” about his fashion style and choice of outfits.
A Place in the Sun airs weekdays at 3pm on Channel 4.
