A bed and breakfast in Ringwould will this week feature in an episode of Channel 4’s Four in a Bed.
Shelly Parnell, 36, of The Five Bells, and her mum Linda Yates, 65, will appear alongside three other pairs of B&B owners in today’s show.
They take turns to stay at each other’s accommodation – and at the end of their stay, pay what they think it was worth.
The winner is the establishment named best value for money.
Having run an online fishing tackle business for 10 years, Ms Parnell took over the pub in April 2014. It has three double rooms, a twin room and two self-catering apartments.
She first applied for the show in May 2015 but was unsuccessful.
She said: “It’s such a wonderful place and I just wanted people to see how lovely it is.
“They contacted me in January this year to ask if I would like to re-apply.
“I had applied with my ex-husband before, but this time I did it with my mum.
“They came along and interviewed us at the B&B. We were told we had been successful at the end of April and filming started at the beginning of May.”
Ms Parnell, who is now the bookings manager there, said she thinks she and her mum were chosen because they’re both very similar and ‘total clean freaks’.
She said: “When I first took over the pub I spent months cleaning the rooms. I really went over them with a fine toothcomb.”
Filming took place over 10 days with The Five Bells being the first establishment to be reviewed by the other three couples.
Ms Parnell said: “We had to arrange an activity so we went paddle boarding at Dover Sea Sports Centre and then on for dinner in the evening at The Blue Pigeons in Worth.
“Our guests stayed the night, got up and had their breakfast and then went back to their bedrooms to give their verdict.”
The pair were then given their results before they moved on to try out the next B&B.
Ms Parnell said they had some very good feedback but are unable to reveal how they fared in the competition.
She described the experience as great fun and has stayed in touch with some of the other couples.
The episode will air at 4pm on Channel 4 today (Monday).
The pub will be putting on a free buffet for the screening.
