For more than two decades, the acclaimed daytime series A Place in the Sun has played a pivotal role in assisting numerous individuals in discovering their ideal homes abroad.

Spanning from permanent residences to vacation homes, the recently introduced series, ‘A Place In The Sun What Happened Next?’ will revisit families and couples who ventured into property purchases abroad, dating as far back as 2007.

Across more than forty episodes, our team of property experts, including Jasmine Harman, Ben Hillman, Laura Hamilton, Leah Charles-King, Danni Menzies, Jean Johansson, Craig Rowe, Lee Juggurnauth, and Sara Damergi, will reconnect with the house-hunters they guided over the years. The objective is to ascertain whether the properties they acquired led to the realization of their envisioned lives.

Viewers can anticipate a special appearance by Amanda Lamb, a former presenter of A Place in the Sun, in the new series. Amanda will reunite with Mike and Fiona from Derbyshire, whom she initially encountered in 2007 while assisting the couple in finding a holiday home in the picturesque region of Lorraine, France.

Numerous previous house-hunters are now basking in sunny climates and relishing a more relaxed pace of life. Some have engaged in barn renovations, embraced rewilding, adopted eco-friendly lifestyles, managed bed and breakfast establishments, or intensified their work efforts. Warmer climates have contributed to alleviating medical conditions for some, while others have discovered love. Some individuals who initially purchased holiday homes have transitioned into permanent relocations.

Senior Executive Producer, Michelle Heeley says, “It’s been wonderful to re-visit these house-hunters who are thriving in their new homes in the sun. We are immensely proud to have helped change so many people’s lives. It’s a testament to all the hard work our production team and presenters have put in over the past 23 years. I can’t wait for viewers to see what happens next.”

Channel 4’s Head of Daytime & Features, Jo Street says, “A Place in the Sun is such a beloved show, and we know the audience really cares what happens to the house-hunters once the cameras leave. What a treat to catch up with homeowners and see what happened when that offer was finally accepted!”

The new series constitutes a double commission, with 20 episodes scheduled for filming in 2023 and an additional 20 episodes in 2024.

A Place in the Sun What Happened Next? is produced by Freeform Productions for Channel 4, with Michelle Heeley serving as the Executive Producer and Siobhan O’Gorman as the Series Editor. The commission was facilitated by Commissioning Executive Barry Agnew and Jo Street, Head of Daytime and Features at Channel 4.
