A PLACE in the Sun presenter Ben Hillman creates a very awkward moment after his hair joke offends guest.
Ben toured La Zenia on Spain’s Costa Blanca with guests Whitney and Rose searching for their dream holiday home in Monday’s episode.
However, Ben accidentally offended Whitney with a hair joke that badly backfired while they were viewing the final property.
Looking around the two-bedroom apartment, Ben commented: “You can let your hair down and party.”
An unimpressed Whitney replied: “Well, I don’t know about that.”
Ben embarrassingly admitted: “I’ve realised my mistake now, I didn’t think anyone noticed at that point.”
Despite Ben’s error, they told Ben the following day they were interested in putting in an offer on the fourth property.
The fifth-floor two-bedroom property had a pool, to which Rose said: “Now this is a pool.”
Whitney agreed: “This is top of the list so far, it knocks the others off.”
They first put in an offer for £81,250 – but the offer was rejected as it was “too low”.
With a maximum budget of £85,000, Ben put in a counter-offer for that figure which was successful.
A very pleased Rose said: “Oh my goodness, thank you so much.”
