Victoria Hollingsworth

Sadly, Victoria Hollingsworth's time on the show was cut short when she sustained life-changing injuries after a car crash on location in Spain left her with a broken back.

Recounting the accident in the Daily Mail, the property guru said: "We were rushing to film at a location and as always in television, chasing the daylight… We swerved off the road and rolled down a bank. I was sitting behind the driver's seat, which unfortunately for me took most of the impact."

Today, Victoria prefers to work behind the camera and is a freelance producer and investigative journalist for the BBC.
