A PLACE in the Sun viewers were horrified when host Jasmine Harman took househunters to a property that ‘looked like a slaughterhouse’.
It came as the show expert tried to help George from Bedfordshire find a holiday home in Mallorca’s Port de Pollensa.

The retired company director was joined by best friend Diane and with a budget of £155,000, Jasmine was tasked with finding his perfect Spanish retreat.
But fans of the Channel 4 show were not impressed by some of the property guru’s offerings.
The property in question was a three-bed townhouse right in the heart of Puerto Pollensa.
As soon as Jasmine walked with the pair into the venue – the second property on their list – George commented that it was like stepping into a “time warp”.

“It’s totally different from what I had in mind,” admitted George.
While Diane said positively: “I think it’s lovely.”
As they had a look at the townhouse, furnished with dark wood furniture, Jasmine led them up some stairs to a terrace, currently functioning as a sort of utility room.
George commented: “It needs a bit of work – a bit of imagination.”
But he went on to add: “Seeing the structure inside, I think there’s a lot more that needs doing to it.
“Things like all the stairs, they are very steep, and these [pointing to his knees] aren’t getting any younger.”
And viewers weren’t surprised George turned down the property as they rushed to Twitter to express their opinions.
One wrote: “Looks like a slaughter house….#aplaceinthesun”.
Another added: “Dangerous stairs to a crap ‘terrace’. No thanks. #aplaceinthesun”.

A third commented: “It’s horrible. Next!”
While a fourth said: “Absolute s*** hole!! #aplaceinthesun”.
Luckily Jasmine was able to present a more palatable offering to George with the third property, another three-bed in the town centre.
With Jasmine’s help, George put in an offer of £166,500, which was accepted.
