A Place In The Sun presenter Laura Hamilton, 39, has opened up on a party attended by presenters of the Channel 4 hit property show, explaining that it was “weird” they were all together at the same time. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the star discussed the bond the cast of the close-knit team have, despite never directly working with each other.
All of the presenters were in the same room and it was hilarious
Addressing the effect that the coronavirus pandemic has had on the show’s ability to film abroad, Laura addressed the practicalities of last year.
“We were able to film a bit last year abroad,” she said.
“Obviously the film was shown in a very different way, with social distancing,” the star continued.
The favourite presenter went on to say that despite facing difficulties, filming the show during the pandemic was a success.

“But in terms of everyone else we don’t [see each other] because we’re either abroad or at home, so we’re sort of like ships in the night with the way it works,” she added.
However, the star went on to reminisce about one “crazy” party which saw them all get together.
“Not last Christmas, but the Christmas before we actually had a Christmas party and it was crazy,” she explained.

Recently, Laura opened up on the decision to sell her family business, The Lord Roberts On The Green.
The star set the record straight on why she has decided it was finally time to sell her coffee shop, while hinting at exciting new projects in the works.
Laura said: “The reason why we’re selling the shop is because everything that I’ve done [with property] since I was 19 is buying and selling.”
She continued: “Obviously there’s a part of me that’s sad, as the staff that work here make it what it is, it really is a family rather than just staff that work for a coffee shop.
“So I’m more sad about that more than anything else, but it’s what I do,” she added.
