Filming C4 show ‘downright scary’ for expat contestant

By Eloise Horsfield

“IT was sometimes downright scary,” reveals British hotelier Amanda Filmer describing her experiences during filming of Channel 4’s Four in a Bed programme last month.

Amanda and husband Jed welcomed three sets of fellow B&B owners to their hotel La Tartana hotel, in La Herradura.

They then, in turn, paid a visit to their guests’ hotels in Antequera, Benidorm and Murcia over a week.

Contestants had to provide an evening meal, a bed for the night – and of course, breakfast – with their guests paying what they considered a suitable price for their experience.

“There are plenty of revelations,” reveals Amanda, originally from Hertfordshire.  “But I am not allowed to divulge too much or I’ll be in trouble”.

However the hotelier, who has been running La Tartana for 16 months, adds tantalisingly: “You can probably make your own minds up about the Benidorm one!

“As for the other contestants, MOST of them we got on well with.

“Although I have to say I will never be able to watch reality TV again – now that I know what the contestants are going through!”

The programme starts on Channel 4 from Monday April 2.
