Fans of A PLACE in the Sun were left livid after Channel 4 aired the British Grand Prix instead of the property show.
A Place in the Sun returned to Channel 4 on Monday June 20 for a brand new series of the property show which helps Britons find their ideal home abroad.
However, fans of the show were unimpressed when they tuned in ahead of Friday’s episode, only to find the popular real estate show had been cancelled.
Some fans were quick to comment on the schedule change on social media.
“I was sitting here waiting for #aplaceinthesun to find out it was cancelled,” one viewer commented.
“Ah, balls. Guess we’re back on monday ‘placers #aplaceinthesun,” said another fan.
Viewers who had hoped to see the hosts fly off to the sunny European continent were sadly disappointed and on Friday expressed their anger at Channel 4 for upending their schedule.
Instead, if its regular programming is scheduled, Channel 4 hosted practice coverage of the British Grand Prix on Friday, ahead of Formula 1 qualifying and the race at Silverstone this weekend.
“Removing APITS for Formula 1 training? Cheek in the garden with booze so good luck until Monday place mates #aplaceinthesun,” one fan commented.
“There is no #aplaceinthesun today because of F1 practice? Why do they need to practice? Surely they know what they are doing now!? Bl***y freedom,” said another angrily.
A third posted a grumpy gif and commented “No #aplaceinthesun because of F1.”
Formula 1 coverage on Channel 4 meant viewers of A Place in the Sun went three days without a new episode, with Friday’s episode airing today at 4pm instead.
Alongside longtime presenters Jasmine Harman and Laura Hamilton, this season of A Place in the Sun is hosted by Craig Rowe, Leah Charles-King, Ben Hillman, Danni Menzies, Sara Damergi and Jean Johansson.
