SERIES four of popular show Bargain Loving Brits in the Sun has come to an end after eight episodes.
The show, which charted the lives of Britons from Marbella and Mijas to Torrox and Torrevieja, shone a light on the realities of relocating to one of the world’s favourite holiday spots.
Last night, the show headed to laid-back static caravan park Camping Lazy Days to meet Lancashire retirees, Andy and Sue Hamilton.
The couple have spent around €50,000 of their savings buying and shipping over a static caravan to the Spanish countryside before making the place a home with unique touches, including empty wine bottles filled with fairy lights.
In the same episode, audiences got to know another Costa cockney; antiques market trader
Carlos Diaz. After turning his hand to a series of careers over the years, including designing Pat Butchers earrings for Eastenders, running a water sports business, and being the Saudi Royal family driver, Carlos has finally settled on dealing antiques. However, with his wife recovering from cancer and a young daughter to support, Carlos needs to make €1,000 a day at the market.
Next up was John Kelly, better-known as Johnny Diamond, the Costa’s cockney limousine driver who offers a unique experience. Johnny combines high-end champagne service with his own edgy brand of banter that can sometimes get a little cheeky.
Online reviews can make or break his business, however, and Johnny needs to make a big impression to keep the jobs coming in.
However, with two major bookings on one night, Johnny is worried he will be able to carry out both jobs and keep his clients happy.
Finally, viewers caught up with episode seven characters Mandy Quinn and Christian Lee Dunn as they prepare to host a Pride parade in the small port town of Manilva.
After five months of fundraising and organising, the big day has finally arrived with a host of well-known Spanish stars to look after.
It is a stressful day for the pair but it gets even worse when the generator powering the speaker for the parade shuts down. As thousands of revellers expect a thumping soundtrack to the glittering parade, Mandy and Christian are forced to pull out the stops to prevent the parade taking place in silence.
