A Place in the Sun guest demanding a swimming pool admits he can’t actually swim

Laura Hamilton had a tricky time on A Place in the Sun with married couple Tony and Ginny who had £235,000 to spend on a villa in Greece.

The pair want to retire on the beautiful Mani Peninsula but had a long list of demands including a sizeable swimming pool for Tony.

He appeared irritated while viewing the first property, on the market for £229,729, when he saw there was limited space to install a swimming pool.

"There is no pool with this one but…" Laura started to say before she was interrupted by Tony who said: "Is there a possibility to put one in?"

"Well I don’t know how big you want it," Laura said defensively.

"Not just to dip my toes in," he said bluntly.

Laura noted the couple "aren't shy about expressing their opinion" and later burst out laughing when Tony admitted he couldn't actually swim.

"Who needs the Caribbean when you've got that?" said Laura while admiring a view of the sea.

She added: "What about the idea of hiring boats? Have you ever done when you're out here?"

Tony said: "I guess I'm not much of a swimmer."

Laura clapped her hand to her face and started laughing, then said: "Hang on a minute, you're not much of a swimmer? You told me you want a pool!"

Tony hit back: "Absolutely! So I can learn to swim."

Looking baffled, Laura said: "You can't swim! Now you tell me…"

"I've got water wings and a big swan," said Tony, although it is not clear if he is just pulling Laura's leg.

The revelation didn't go unnoticed by fans of the show who commented on it on Twitter.

A second viewer tweeted: "FFS!! He can’t swim. I’ll take him swimming any day!"
