A Place in the Sun was a frustrating watch for some viewers when a couple couldn't decide on a single property.
In Tuesday's new episode of the Channel 4 show (April 27) property expert Jonnie Irwin said there were "sour grapes" when trying to find Debbie and Dave a holiday home in the Dordogne region of France.
With a budget of £200,000, there were some beautiful homes to choose from but the "fussy" couple couldn't pick one out of the five they were shown around – with problems such as them being "too dated" and "too modern" cropping up.
Introducing the tourist hotspot area, Jonnie said: "The Dordogne is well known as a gastronomic hotspot – you’re never far from a tasty bite to eat or a delicious glass of wine, nearly all homegrown."
Debbie and Dave told him they wanted something traditional with three bedrooms near a boulangerie.
He first took them to the town of Brantôme – often referred to as the Venice of the Perigord – but the four-bedroom house within their budget was a flat no because it was too rural and had no swimming pool.
Next, Jonnie found them a £202,702 six-bedroom house in Tocane-Saint-Apre which had a swimming pool and was in close proximity to five restaurants and several shops.
"It's great, I'm loving it," Debbie said when looking at the outside.
But once inside, the couple's enthusiasm dwindled as they examined the rustic country tiles and traditional fireplace.
"It's a bit dated isn't it?" said Dave in disappointment
The third property was a traditional stone house on the market for £190,990 with a swimming pool, as well as a terrace with views of the countryside beyond.
On the inside, it was a modern design with a multi-level living space with a large fireplace and a kitchen off to one side, and a mezzanine living area.
"I think that's lovely. I love it. You're being quiet," Debbie said to her husband.
Dave said: "I was expecting something more traditional."
Next, Jonnie showed them around a £162,162 converted farmhouse with a characterful interior and a living room with a wood-burning stove.

The swimming pool was huge but it was communal and there was a management fee to maintain some of the areas.
It was a contender – with both Debbie and Dave enthusiastic about the decor.
Finally, they viewed their fifth and final property on the market for £224,684 in the village of Badefols Sur Dordogne, near Lalinde.
The private pool had its own Jacuzzi and the couple were impressed – agreeing to make it another contender.
Unfortunately, when Jonnie sat down with the couple to see if they wanted to make any offers, they had changed their minds.

"Neither of us can compromise on which we like better," Debbie confessed, before adding: "It’s brought it home to us that we know where we need to be."
Jonnie was gutted he couldn't find them their dream home but said they did find something they liked a month later.
Viewers on Twitter blasted the couple as "time-wasters" when they didn't put down an offer.
"I knew they wouldn’t go for any of those properties, miserable s***," moaned one.
A second huffed: "B***** time wasters."
"Time wasters I knew it," said another.
