A Place In The Sun presenter Jasmine Harman was recently dealt a further blow after the Channel 4 programme was forced to halt filming due to travel restrictions, amid the coronavirus pandemic. It comes as the travel show also had to implement safety restrictions when shooting the series last year.

The 45-year-old opened up about the challenges of filming abroad with potential house hunters in search of their dream property abroad.

The mum-of-two explained that the presenters have to maintain a social distance of two metres with guests, which she admittedly finds difficult.

Jasmine spoke candidly about an emotional moment on the show where a house hunter had carried out her late father’s wish to purchase a property overseas.

She explained: “It was quite an emotional house hunt and a very emotional journey.

“Watching that show and thinking back to it, if she became upset we could have a hug. But now we can’t. I find it really hard.”

Jasmine continued: “Obviously it’s necessary but I find it really sad.

“To not be able to show support or affection in that way because everything’s done at a social distance now.”

She added: “Even if they get an offer accepted on a house and everyone is so happy, I can’t even give them a congratulatory hug.

“With all the different things going on at the moment we’re just not allowed to share [a hug] physically.”

Jasmine also opened up about a time she “couldn’t stop crying” after showing two buyers their dream property abroad.

The property expert admitted the programme can often reduce her to tears because families’ lives are impacted forever.

Jasmine explained: “Just recently I was in Cyprus and I had a lovely couple who had young children around the same age as mine.

“They made an offer on one of the properties we showed them and the family were all waiting for the answer.

“They had been on Facetime to their children, who were all sitting at home in their little play tent sitting on the edge of their seats, waiting to find out if this was actually going to happen.”

The mum-of-two admitted she couldn’t hold in her emotions, saying: “I actually couldn’t stop crying.”

The small-screen star added: “It’s the worst but it’s usually happy tears.”

Jasmine made her debut on A Place In The Sun alongside Jonnie Irwin in 2004.

The presenter previously worked alongside her husband Jon Boast – a cameraman on the show.

The couple eventually tied the knot in 2009 and soon welcomed children, a son named Albion and a daughter, Joy.

A Place In The Sun airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm.
