Despite the programme looking effortless on screen. things haven't always run smoothly according to Laura Hamilton. The expert on the show opened up to HELLO! in a recent interview about moments that haven't quite gone to plan while filming.

From difficult buyers to houses that just don't have the wow factor, she's seen her fair share of disasters over the years.

The 38-year-old and the production crew had been filming in Italy when disaster struck. Laura explained: "One minute it was gorgeous sunshine and the next the heavens opened, and it absolutely pelted it down with rain.

"The property we were looking at was off the beaten track, and our seven vehicles pretty much got caught in a mudslide and we had to be rescued by tractors." She continued: "It was a disaster, but it made it memorable."
