Where are they now? David and Christina Hurst in Orlando

"We didn't buy the property on TV and went for an offplan instead"

Christina and David Hurst from Warwick were filmed buying a lake property in Orlando, Florida, with Jonnie. But as Christina, a 54-year-old teacher, explains, that was not the end of the story.

"We were close to buying the lake property but it was well over our budget of £150,000. But our daughter visited Claremont [10 minutes from Disney] a few weeks later and told us about a new eco development, Serenity at Dream resort, and we ended up buying a three-bed townhouse with splash pool for £115,000 - offplan. It's due for completion in August [2014] and the builder [Zenedro Homes] have been brilliant, sending us photos of the progress. We plan to rent it out for £100 a night to cover our costs when we are not using it, and hope to spend a few months a year there when we retire."
