I was on Four In a Bed – bosses set you up with people you'll clash with and even made us change our rooms and clothes

A COUPLE that appeared on Four In a Bed have shared sensational claims about their time on the show.

The hit Channel 4 series involves four sets of B&B owners who take it in turns to stay with one another – and its damning behind the scenes secrets have been revealed.


Julie and Neale – who own Copperfields Vegetarian Guest House – spoke about their experiences after winning the show.

Speaking about the application process, Neale revealed the extreme lengths they had to go to in order to secure a place on the show.

He told the Metro: "They sent us a quick questionnaire that we filled out, then one person comes around to film an interview with you. That basically took about four hours.

"We had to rearrange the whole of one of our rooms and change our clothes because they weren’t very camera-friendly."

The preliminary interview shapes who the show pairs contestants up with – and Neale and Julie wish they’d known that at the time. 

Julie added: "They asked us things like 'What do you hate most when you go to another bed and breakfast?' If you were to say 'I hate dogs,' then they pit you against someone who had dogs. 

"We didn’t realise at the time, we were just quite honest and upfront. So they pitted us with a Scottish couple who were very much meat-oriented."

Just last month, a B&B owner on the programme burst into tears after reviewing the payment left by his rival contestants.

Reviewing the scores left by the guests, Edinburgh B&B owner Craig Bonar was disappointed that his guests had scored him a seven for cleanliness.

However, he still received full payment of £169 from both couples and was visibly moved by the gesture.

Fighting back the tears, he said: "Thank you very much. Do you know what? It's been a long journey."
