Laura - In words
Laura Hamilton is a best known as one of the faces of Channel 4's popular television show 'A Place in the Sun'. She loves to travel and has hands on experience when it comes to property. She started renovating houses aged 19 and has developed 19 properties to date, including her first commercial venture in 2017 – a coffee shop and Deli with over 25 staff called Lord Roberts on the Green. In 2013, she presented 'Beat My Build' for Channel 4 which saw participants renovating their projects and competing against each other to win a cash prize. She has also presented 'Cowboy Builders and Bodge Jobs' for Channel 5.
One thing's for sure, Laura seldom relaxes. She thrives on being a busy working Mum to her children Rocco and Tahlia, and in April 2017, Laura and her husband Alex opened 'Lord Roberts on The Green', a coffee shop, deli and Post Office which has become a popular community hub in their local area. With over 26 staff and Laura qualifying as the Post Mistress, life is certainly busy.
Laura loves to keep fit and in 2016 she released her first fitness app 'Laura Hamilton's Total Body Workout' which is available on the iPhone & Android. She presented the action adventure show 'Fort Boyard' for ITV for 5 series and is always keen to take on a physical challenge.
A keen writer, Laura regularly writes and provides video content for 'Hello!' magazine. She also travel writes for 'The Mail on Sunday' ,'A Place in the Sun' magazine and other national publications. Having travelled with both of her children around the world since they were 4 weeks old, she is somewhat of an expert when it comes to travelling with little ones!
Laura began her television career working behind the scenes as an assistant floor manager. After four years working on a variety of shows, she moved to the other side of the camera and started working as a children's TV presenter. Few people know Laura can both sing and dance. She has appeared on the stage several times as 'Cinderella' in pantomime alongside Steve Guttenberg, Stephen Gately and Bradley Walsh. It was a real surprise for many of her guests at her wedding in 2012 when she sang with the band whilst her father (a former Womble!) played on the drums.
