A PLACE in the Sun host Leah Charles-King left a couple in tears after a huge property twist in the final minutes of the show.
On Wednesday's episode of the popular Channel 4 show, married couple Gareth and Hannah went in search for their dream holiday home in Spain's Costa Tropical.
But when it came to putting in an offer on their favourite, they were faced with a dilemma that left them emotional.
The second option, a three-bed townhouse in La Loma, became an instant favourite with the couple.
The stunning modern townhouse included a garage as well as several balconies and terraces.
Valued at £143,590, the home became a promising option, but there were still three more homes Leah had in store.
Meeting with Leah the next day, the trio discussed the success of the property search.
Revealing their decision, Hannah revealed: "When it came to practical and sensible we picked house number two."
"No way, the modern house," a shocked Leah replied, adding: "I think you've made the perfect choice."
The couple made an initial offer of £130,000, however, it was deemed too low.
"We'll go £134,000," Gareth decided. "I think that's a good step forward."
However, the couple were disappointed once again when the second offer was also rejected.
Leah then opted for an unorthodox approach, asking: "What's the highest that you're willing to go to?"
"Around the £140,000 mark," Hannah replied.
"Well, the owners have rejected £134,000," Leah repeated before dropping the bombshell: "But their counter offer is £139,500."
The couple nodded at each other as the property expert seemingly had her answer without asking.
