In the episode, couple Ginny and Tony were keen to find a property to retire in with a £230,000 budget - but viewers took to Twitter to discuss the episode after finding their dream home proved challenging.

Viewers were also incensed by some of the comments made by the couple, with one joking: "'Makes it more English'. Please Poseidon, rise from the sea and take your revenge. #aplaceinthesun." Another added: "Makes it more English! Why do you want to live in bloody Greece then?" A third person added: "Makes it more modern, more English? Wowsers, why move to Greece... just stay at home?"

Laura recently opened up about reports that she was planning to leave A Place in the Sun, telling Entertainment Daily: "It really upset me and I never ever said I was looking to leave. Why would I? It's just terrible. Because I'd said I work on other TV projects and I'd love to do other travel things, that doesn't mean you're going to leave a project that you're already working on.

"I own a coffee shop and a restaurant. That doesn't mean because I own a coffee shop and a restaurant that I'm going to leave my TV job and do that full time, do you know what I mean?"
