Sands Resort Hotel on ‘Four in a Bed’
Earlier this year hotel owners Nicholas Malcolm and son Tom took part in the hit Channel 4 show, Four in Bed which will be aired from 20th November.
The programme sees four B&B owners take turns to stay with one another and pay what they consider fair for their stay as they battle to be declared best value for money.
Taking part in the show was not an easy choice for Sands Resort owner Nicholas.
He said his natural instinct was to say no and added: “My personality could be described as more Jack Dee than Dale Winton and all I could see were potential problems but the Sands Team convinced me to give it a go.”
When the two set off on the two-week adventure their first exotic clime was Huddersfield.
Nicholas said that they saw it as an opportunity for a road trip, some quality time as father and son and of course a chance to see a new area of England.
He admitted it was also nice to enjoy being customer instead of a host for a change.”
The trip turned out to be an exciting but also enlightening experience for the pair.
They both enjoyed their time on the show and have even become friends with some of the Four in a Bed crew and fellow contestants.
Back at Sands Resort, they admit to missing the lime light.
Nicholas said that Tom in particular seemed to relax into his new-found celebrity status, having been mobbed by staff in a Spar shop while buying a toothbrush, who also gave him a rendition of the programme’s theme tune whilst taking selfies.
With the content of the show under wraps until airing, Nicholas describes the other ‘contestants’ as an eclectic mix, but says that the final comments are certain to make the show essential viewing. The two can’t wait to see the judgement day edit.
Four in a Bed will be aired from 20th November on Channel 4.
