BEN Hillman has revealed why all the A Place in the Sun presenters will never film together.

The Channel 4 presenter has become a fixture on the hit property show since joining in 2016.

It sees Brits looking to sell up and move abroad find their perfect home in a sunnier climate.

The show has a number of hosts including Jasmine Harman, Laura Hamilton, Scarlette Douglas and Lee Juggurnauth to name a few.

But viewers never see the hosts together as they front their own individual episodes – and now Ben has revealed why.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online about hosting a special with his fellow presenters, he said: "That could get wonderfully messy!

"You know, we all, we all come at this from different angles, different angles of expertise, different walks of life.

"We've all got our own take on the right thing to do with property or what we care in.

"There is that saying, ‘too many cooks’, as much as I'd like to hang with the gang in a sunny spot."

While he has no plans to leave the daytime show, Ben has set his sights on his very own programme with an original take.

He said: "I think that is that is every presenters dream, you know, how to have a standalone show.

"So obviously coming from my background, which is designing construction.

"You know, I can effectively build my own house. Having my own show I would absolutely enjoy that most definitely. Design your own house in the sun!"

Ben also revealed just how the potential properties are picked that feature in A Place in the Sun.

He told us producers will view a number of houses before the presenters fly out to the location.

Ben explained: "We've got our production team on the ground ahead of me arriving who have looked at so many properties, and they would whittle them down, then I look through those properties with them and we would see whether that is the right line up.

"And sometimes as well we’ve got other options like in the wings just in case the direction takes a bit of a turn which is unexpected. So it’s never fully fixed and it's a movable thing sometimes."

A Place in the Sun airs weekdays from 4pm on Channel 4.
