Presenter George Clarke stayed at the resort during the crew's filming of a house in the town for the show, which focuses on transforming older houses into new modern homes and will be shown as part of the fifth series of the programme.

They also used the countryside background on the resort to film some shots which will be used in the series.

General manager Daniel Littlewood said: “It was great to have George staying with us. A number of staff really enjoy his programmes so when we found out he was staying with us to film in the local area, we were all excited.
