Lee’s first assignment is to head to the vibrant city of Gandia in Spain to help Dabi and Devi. Gandia is Spain’s last-remaining coastal secret with one of the best beaches in the country and what’s more, it’s conveniently located for a commute into Valencia City, making it the perfect location for the couple. Can Lee pull out all the stops and use his creative know how to find them their very own slice of Spanish paradise?

For the rest of the team, Jasmine, Jean, Jonnie, Danni, Laura, Ben and Scarlette, will be jetting off to sunnier shores. From the beautiful Kassandra Peninsula in the north of Greece, the whitewashed towns and villages, of Almeria, to the to the peace and quiet of the French countryside in West Brittany, our presenters will leave no stone unturned in their quest to find our house-hunters their very own Place in the Sun.



Lee grew up in Windsor and spent a few years between the ages of 7 – 10 in Mauritius where his parents are from.

He started his career working in the music industry as a runner and worked his way up to management, working with the likes of Lulu, Billy Ocean, Take That and many more.

Working in the industry and touring all over the world, enabled Lee to discover some fantastic properties and open his creative design eyes. As a keen Property Developer, Lee has worked on projects in the UK, as well as Ibiza and Mauritius.

Diversity is hugely important to Lee who prides himself on being an activist fighting for racial equality. When growing up, Lee couldn’t really identify anyone on TV that looked like him.

One of Lee’s other passions if fashion and is launching his very own fashion range in the summer.
