THIS week, Bargain Loving Brits in the Sun will celebrate Valentine’s Day with an episode taking in some of the show’s best-loved characters.
Episode six, which will air at 8pm UK time today (Thursday) on Channel 5, will see audiences revisit horse rescue charity boss, Jill Newman-Rodgers.
This week, the expatriate rushes to the aid of a badly treated horse abandoned by a road. Following help from generous Britons, the charity can afford the expensive rescue and intensive treatment of the newly-named Rihanna. However, with years of neglect to reverse, the team must put their own safety at risk every day with painful treatments, all in the hope they can give Rihanna a new life free from pain.
Also in this episode, viewers will head to the El Campanario golf course in Estepona for a round with a difference. Footgolf is a combination of football and golf and British born expatriate Fernando Lago is hoping his favourite hobby will one day become his business. We follow the ups and downs of Fernando’s free competition which aims to bring in new punters. Most of the footgolf on display leaves a lot to be desired, but will the fun factor be enough to help the business take off?
Back for more after starring in episode four is call centre entrepreneur-turned Spanish bar tycoon, Vincent Neale. After the stressful opening of his own bar in Estepona, he has decided to open another one for his former call-centre employee Courtney Hirsch and her boyfriend Michael Heard. It is a great opportunity for the young couple who have moved to Spain to start a new life, but with Vincent piling on the pressure to do up the dilapidated bar and open it immediately, they might wish they had never agreed to it. Tempers fray and an unexpected flood lead to major meltdowns; will Courtney and Michael manage to get the bar open on time?
Finally, viewers will return to one of the show’s best-loved characters, Victor Nash; a cockney motorhome owner who has been parked up in a campsite in Marbella for ten years. This week, Victor tries to sell his campervan to a young couple, but will he succeed?
