A Place In The Sun guest disappeared during filming after rowing with partner

A guest on A Place In The Sun had the crew fretting they wouldn’t get to wrap on filming after going rogue.

Presenter Danni Menzies shared some behind the scenes secrets from the Channel 4 foreign property show, and told that sometimes relationships can be pushed to the limit as they hunt for their dream home.

And while disagreements aren’t all that rare, one bust-up between a couple saw one of them storm off-set and vanish for a while.

Danni told Metro.co.uk : “We’ve had a couple who had the biggest barney ever.

“When we finished filming one day, one of them disappeared and we were like, ‘Oh my God, we’re not going to be able to finish the show, where are they?'”

Thankfully, the guest was eventually found and they were able to get all the footage they needed for the episode.

“I don’t know where they’re at now!” Danni laughed.

The show helps families and retired couples move abroad to a sun-soaked setting, often the Mediterranean coast of Spain or south of France.

And while it follows property experts sniffing out the best deals for their guests, meeting their demands within their price range, the show can pull on the heartstrings too.

One recent episode saw a woman honour her late mum by moving into her dream home.

Jonnie Irwin was able to find British couple Linda and Andy a new place in Cyprus, where Linda’s mum had always wanted to move to.

And with a budget of £120K, Jonnie had his work cut out for him – coming up with five options for the pair.

One boasted unbeatable sea views and was only a short way away from the city of Paphos, where there’s a thriving British ex-pat community.

“How are you feeling now you’ve submitted an offer on a full-time home in Cyprus?” Jonnie asked the couple after they’d put down an offer.

“I’m actually quite shocked because I’ve wanted to do it for so long and I’m going to cry,” Linda admitted, voice cracking.

She also explained that her mum had always wanted to come to Cyprus, but had sadly died before that dream came true.

“As well as doing it for myself, I’m doing it for my mum as well and I just wish she was here still,” she said.

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