The pair settled on purchasing the house, and the estate agent accepted their offer. Celebrating over a glass of bubbly, Scarlette said: “The stress is over. It's been a journey hasn't it?” However, it very sadly wasn’t to be, as the seller of the property pulled out shortly after accepting their offer.
Viewers were understandably upset with the revelation that the pair were unable to move into their dream home, with one tweeting: “Couple on #aplaceinthesun just found their dream Florida home, haggled their [expetive] off to close the deal then in the end credits the voiceover said ‘the next day the sellers pulled out of the deal.’ I feel cheated.”

Another added: “How does that work, if they agreed surely it's a done deal. Weird American laws no doubt. See you all tomorrow folks,” while a third person wrote: “Nice couple, shame the seller was an idiot. Hope they eventually find somewhere.”
