A Place in the Sun’s Jasmine Harman squeals as couple drive hard bargain
Jasmine Harman said she was getting "butterflies" on A Place in the Sun when a couple decided to give an incredibly low offer for their dream home.
In Monday's episode (June 14) of the Channel 4 show, Jasmine was in the Greek island of Crete with Catherine and Patrick.
The childhood sweethearts from Leeds had been together for 20 years and went on their honeymoon on the Greek island, and wanted to get their own piece of it ever since.
With a budget of £150,000, they were after a two-bedroom, two-bathroom villa with a swimming pool and lots of private outdoor space to enjoy the summers in.
But the one they fell in love with was on the market for £173,000 at the time of filming.
The charming Greek-style villa was situated in the heart of the village of Kokkino Horio, which overlooked the sea at Souda Bay.
It had two bedrooms and sat on a good-sized plot with its own private swimming pool and secluded gardens and was surrounded by olive groves.

The cheeky couple only offered £145,000 for the house and Jasmine said it was "very exciting" to start the bargaining process as she called up the agent.
"I've got butterflies!" she admitted as the phone rang.
She told the agent: "I have fantastic news for you, Catherine and Patrick would like to make an offer on the house we saw in Kokkino Horio, they'd like to offer £145,000, now they are cash buyers so are happy to move as quickly as the owner wants to."

"Ooh-ooh, it's nerve-wracking isn't it?" she said with a squeal.
She then joked Patrick was "cool as a cucumber" because he seemed completely unflustered in comparison.
The agent said the offer was too low but said £148,000 would be accepted – which a thrilled Patrick and Catherine quickly agreed to.
