A PLACE IN THE SUN presenter Jean Johansson issues a warning to all of her house hunters ahead of filming for each episode for the Channel 4 series.
A Place in the Sun presenter Jean Johansson has been a staple on the Channel 4 series since 2018, and during that time she has helped many house hunters to find their dream holiday homes.

“I think we’re all bargain hunters and inherently we all want to spend the least amount that we can,” she added.
“We often get bargain hunters and part of our jobs as the experts and presenters is to manage those expectations.
“We are on their side, but we also have to manage the expectations as well.”

When Jean and her fellow co-stars were able to travel again, Channel 4 bosses were forced to put restrictions in place.
The presenter was also unable to hug her house hunters due to social distancing rules.
Despite some restrictions still being in place, Jean is now able to travel to more countries as the government lifted the travel ban.
