All new episodes of A Place in the Sun and a new presenter

As the leaves fall from the trees and the cold winter nights draw in, A Place in the Sun promises to bring a ray of sunshine into your front rooms with 15 brand-new episodes of the Channel 4 hit series.

TV and Radio presenter Leah Charles-King will make her debut appearance this season as she joins our team of property experts to help house-hunters find their dream holiday homes.

Leah and her family have been buying, renovating and then selling properties for profit in the UK for many years. Leah found she had a natural flair at it and has a passion for property, helping numerous people find their dream homes. Away from the UK, Leah and her parents own properties and land in Saint Lucia and Grenada in the Caribbean.

She is also the Ambassador for Bipolar UK, a charity close to her heart having recently talked publicly about her battle with the condition. Leah recently launched her own platform presenting and producing content on Mental health and well-being to normalise the conversation and end the stigma around mental illness.

Leah said, “I’m so excited to be joining the A Place in the Sun family! I've been watching the show since it began and I feel especially privileged to be working on such an iconic programme. Landing this dream gig has been life changing for me as 9 years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar and I didn’t think I’d work in television again because of the stigma towards mental illness. It proves there is life after diagnosis. My story is one of tenacity and overcoming adversity; and A Place In The Sun has given me a new hope.”

Leah’s first assignment is helping retired teachers Carrie and Steve find their dream property in the town of Islantilla on Spain’s Costa de la Luz. With a budget of £110,000 they’re looking for a two-bedroom apartment as close to the beach as possible, where they hope to while away the winters. Leah has five fantastic properties to show them but will any of them prove to be the perfect place?

For the rest of the team, Jasmine, Jean, Lee, Danni, Laura, Ben and Scarlette, will be jetting off to Crete, Costa Blanca, the Algarve and many more beautiful locations in their quest to find our house-hunters their very own Place in the Sun.
