WE’VE only just launched on the Costa Blanca south – and we’re already about to get famous.

Just days before this week’s first edition, Olive Press reporter Simon Wade got involved in the filming of a new TV show.

Wade, based in the area, had just popped in to see the team at Casas Manuel Estate Agent, in Benijofar, to ask if they wanted to collaborate in the launch, when he was confronted by a TV camera crew.

It turned out they were in the middle of filming another episode of ‘Sun, Sea and Selling Houses’, for Channel Four.

After chatting with the Brighton production team, Ricochet, Wade was talked into actually appearing in a scene chatting with staff Sophie and Charlotte and owner Manuel, himself.

Wade said, “I only went in to chat about a feature I’m writing, and now I’m appearing on national TV – not what I was expecting when I got up this morning.”

Casas Manuel have already featured in three series of the popular property programme, along with Almeria estate agents, Spanish Property Choice.

Shows being filmed at the moment are due to be broadcast next year.

The feature will appear in the next issue of The Olive Press (Costa Blanca South edition) on November 22.
