Jasmine Harman interview

Q. What is your most memorable A Place in the Sun moment?

A. There are so many, I’m going to say my most memorable moment was falling into Lake Vinuela when my house hunter accidentally tipped our canoe over! It was all captured on film and they kept it in the final episode! 

But I think my most memorable moment for viewers was when Tina the bin-lady bought a cave house in Granada for £14.5k!

Q. Where is your favourite place to film?

A. We travel to so many amazing locations but I definitely have a soft spot for the Caribbean. Barbados and St Vincent in particular. So picturesque and the people are so welcoming. I’ve not been for a few years and I miss it!

Q. If you could buy A Place in the Sun anywhere, where would you choose?

A. Very hard to decide this but I’m going to say the Algarve, I have a great fondness for the area as I lived there for several years. It is so beautiful and I have lots of friends and speak the language so it feels very comfortable. 

Q. If you could invite anyone (dead or alive) to a dinner party, who would you choose?

A. George Michael 

Q. What would your desert island meal be?

A. Avocado on toast with cherry tomatoes

Q. Is there one skill that you would love to master?

A. Speaking Greek

Q. Name one thing you couldn’t live without

A. My phone. It’s embarrassing how lost I am without it!

Q. What’s your biggest pet peeve?

A. Uncomfortable chairs. Why? If you own a restaurant, why purchase uncomfortable chairs for your customers to sit on? I just don’t get it. 

Oh and also tinned mushrooms. They should be illegal. 

Q. If you were a biscuit, what kind of biscuit would you be and why?

A. A digestive - a classic, the nation’s favourite, & vegan! 

Q. If you could win an Olympic medal for any sport, real or fake, what would it be?

A. Walking on sand in high heels, followed by climbing mountains in high heels. All terrain heels!
