Next Episode of Four in a Bed is
Four in a Bed is a British reality television game show that has been airing on Channel 4 since 22 November 2010. The show involves four B&B owners, who take turns to stay with one another - and pay what they consider fair for their stay. The winner is the establishment named best value for money.
The competition kicks off at The Richard III in Middleham, run by Ken Ward and his wife Sharon. As the guests arrive, mother and son duo Jo and Louis Stevenson from Castley Camp in Otley, like the themed rooms but find sleeping above a pub noisy. Being racing enthusiasts, the hosts introduce the group to their pride and joy: their race horse Rosairlie. But one of the competitors, Matt Wilson of the Lion and Swan in Congleton, nearly falls at the first hurdle with a fear of horses. When Keith and Lisa Shearin from the Court House Unique Boutique B&B in Shelsley Walsh, Worcestershire, head off before breakfast suspicions are raised. Come feedback, despite the generous scores, Ken and Sharon don't trust them.
The second visit of the week is to the Court House Unique Boutique B&B in Shelsley Walsh, Worcestershire, where hosts Keith and Lisa Shearin hold court. On arrival, Ken and Sharon are blown away by their honeymoon suite and the seemingly low price. A trip to the local Morgan sports car factory provides some light relief but suspicions over price fixing drive Matt and Paul to the internet to verify the room rate, where they discover an anomaly. At dinner Keith and Lisa are confronted over their pricing, and relations in the group turn sour. Despite Keith's best efforts at breakfast, Jo and Louis dismiss it as being too fancy. Come feedback Keith and Lisa are shocked to find that the pricing discrepancy has led to a low score for facilities.
The third visit of the week is to Castley Camp in Otley, Yorkshire, owned by single mum Jo Stevenson and her son Louis. On arrival, Ken and Sharon are horrified by stains on their bedding and dust in the room. During the afternoon boot camp fitness session, Keith reveals his competitive side, but is beaten by arch rivals Matt and Paul. Over dinner, Jo explains how the B&B came about but Sharon and Ken think she's taken too much on. At breakfast, Jo enlists a reluctant Louis to be front of house but he doesn't know what to do and loses interest. Come feedback, Jo's left fuming over the cleanliness and sloppy breakfast comments.
The final visit of the week is to the Lion and Swan in Congleton, Cheshire, where owner Paul Whyle and manager Matt Wilson set out to come up trumps. On arrival, Lisa and Keith are still riled by Matt and Paul's feedback, and are shocked by their waterbed and a dirty bathroom. An afternoon of battle of barrel rolling sees Jo and Louis ignore Ken and Sharon as they are still fuming over their feedback at their place. Come dinner, there is some unlikely flirting, and at breakfast, Sharon announces she's discovered their rooms online at a higher price than they were told which upsets Keith and Lisa who came under the same scrutiny. Come feedback, Matt and Paul are confused by the price discrepancy comments and are determined to clear their names.
It's the final day in the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for the last time to find out what they've been paid and to settle some scores. Ken and Sharon from The Richard III are up first, and they want to find out more about what's been causing Jo and Louis to lose sleep. Next, it's the turn of Keith and Lisa from The Court House Unique Boutique B&B. They want to challenge Matt about the allegations of price fixing and vehemently fight their corner. Third up are mother and son duo, Jo and Louis from Castley Camp. They are gunning for Ken and Sharon and want to air their dirty laundry when it comes to stains on the bed sheets. Finally, it's Matt's turn to get to the bottom of Ken and Sharon's comments over the controversial information they discovered online at The Lion and Swan. There's tension in the air and axes to grind but ultimately the winner is revealed.
The competition begins at No.33 Hunstanton in Norfolk, where owner Janie Thompson and housekeeper Gemma Layfield hope their quirky design and high end brand of luxury will win the day. Despite the dÚcor, the in-room bath receives a soggy reception from Cheryle and Anthony Katz, owners of The Lansdowne in the Cotswolds. An afternoon of painting sees Mark and Jan Rummery from The Ivybridge in Goodwick, Wales emerge as the ones to beat and the group's banter begins. At dinner, father and son duo Mick and Chris Emanuele from La Tavola Calda, Nuneaton, reveal they're B&B old timers and their Italian roots pique interest. Come feedback, the surprising scores and some unexpected comments leave Janie and Gemma smarting.
The second visit is to La Tavola Calda in Nuneaton, where father and son team Mick and Chris Emanuele run a basic B&B above their Italian restaurant. On arrival, Mark and Jan are horrified by the standard of dÚcor. That evening Mick and Chris, reveal their George Michael tribute act will be performing after dinner. Janie and Gemma love the experience but the noise in the rooms keeps Jan awake. Come morning, Cheryle and Anthony have not been able to sleep for a very different reason and so Mick and Chris are already fighting a losing battle when it comes to serving breakfast. But nothing can prepare the hosts for their feedback, which leaves them feeling gutted and the fact no-one would return again is the ultimate kick in the teeth.
The third visit is to The Lansdowne in the Cotswolds, where hosts Cheryle and Anthony Katz hope their hospitality expertise will charm their way to the top. Although the rooms are a hit for Janie and Gemma, Mick and Chris are determined to find fault. Mark and Jan reveal a competitive streak during an afternoon of husky racing, and come dinner Anthony and Cheryle have their business credentials scrutinised. At breakfast Mick and Chris put their hosts under pressure, which has the temperature rising in the kitchen. But it's at feedback when Cheryle and Anthony face picky comments and what they think is a personal attack that leaves them fuming.
The last visit is to The Ivybridge Hotel and Spa, where Mark and Jan Rummery are bringing their hospitality experience in Asia to Wales. On arrival, Cheryle and Anthony are unimpressed to be housed in an annexe, and Mick and Chris dismiss the bathroom as a bodge job. During an afternoon of Chinese cookery, the tensions are palpable as relationships continue to disintegrate. At dinner, things come to a head when Cheryle and Anthony tell it straight and Mick and Chris admit to changing their approach to the competition post reading their feedback. Next morning, the tensions are still simmering and the group are on edge. Come feedback, Mark and Jan are surprised by some of their comments and disappointed that not everyone wants to return.
It's the final day of the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for the last time to find out what they've been paid and to thrash out their issues. No.33 Hunstanton is up first, and hosts Janie and Gemma want to quiz Mark and Jan over their privacy problems. Next, father and son duo Mick and Chris Emanuele from La Tavola Calda want to put Cheryle and Anthony's sleep issues to bed. Cheryle and Anthony Katz from The Lansdowne next want to take Mick and Chris to task over their feedback with dramatic consequences, which lead to Chris admitting they've been game playing. When it comes to The Ivybridge Guest House, Mark and Jan want to smooth the cracks but are left far from happy. The group is close to breaking point as they battle through their issues before the winner is finally announced.
