Laura Hamilton is no stranger to finding the perfect property for house hunters on Channel 4’s A Place In The Sun. The presenter has now addressed “rivalry” between her co-stars on the spin-off show Home or Away?.

The 39-year-old competes with presenters Jasmine Harman, Jonnie Irwin and Ben Hillman to help house hunters find their dream property either in the UK or abroad.

After showing them six properties – three at home and three abroad – they make a decision on whether to stay in the UK or move overseas.

The mum-of-two claimed there is no competition in the main show, A Place In The Sun, but admitted they do enjoy having “banter” on Home Or Away?.

When asked about show rivalry, Laura remarked: “No [rivalry], but on Home and Away? we have a bit of fun.

“Because one of the presenters is based in the UK and one of us is abroad we have banter.

“We’ll go ‘Oh, [the house hunters] are definitely going to choose [a home] away, Jas’ or ‘I’m going to win them over and convince them to stay home.’ But it’s always a bit of fun.”

She continued: “It’s never any serious rivalry. Not at all. If anything I think we’re just happy for each other when the sale goes through.

“The offers have a bell and everytime someone offers on a property we all ring the bell. We just encourage and support each other.”

The presenter also opened up about her relationship with her co-hosts and revealed they hardly get a chance to see each other.

It comes as the Channel 4 stars welcomed new presenter Lee Juggarnauth to the property show.

“We get new presenters that join the show every so often,” Laura explained.

“We never see each other because we’re never in the country at the same time, so it’s not possible.”

She continued: “We did all get together at a Christmas party a while ago when we were all back from filming and that was the one time we met. So hopefully, we’ll get to meet Lee at some point.”

“It’s always nice to welcome new people to the family although we never get to see them.”

“We’re never in the country at the same time,” Laura added.

Elsewhere, Laura has since returned to filming A Place In The Sun after the coronavirus pandemic halted production.

The small screen favourite was snapped exiting her house to fly to Lisbon in Portugal in an Instagram post last Sunday.

The country is on the UK’s “green” list for unrestricted travel, but anyone arriving will need to take a negative PCR test before departure.

The Channel 4 favourite has since landed in Portugal to begin filming for the property show.

A Place In The Sun airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 4pm.
