North Walsham B&B owners star in next week’s Channel 4 ‘Four in a Bed’
North Norfolk bed and breakfast owner Jenny Harmer will star on the nation's TV screens next week.
Mrs Harmer, 46, and her Chimneys B&B, in North Walsham, will feature in Channel 4's Four in a Bed series from Monday to Friday, June 25-June 29, at 5pm.
Although Mrs Harmer has been sworn to secrecy by the programme makers, other sources have leaked information that a row over a Union Flag tablecloth, canoeing, and supper at the town's Beechwood Hotel will all feature in the North Walsham episode, due to be screened on Tuesday.
The series follows four couples who stay in each other's B&Bs, pay what they consider to be a fair rate and comment on their experiences.
Mrs Harmer and her builder husband Richard, 50, will be shown staying in B&Bs in the north and the south of the country through the rest of the week.

The programme makers visited Chimneys, on Cromer Road, during the early spring and Mrs Harmer said the filming had been 'fun - most of the time.'
She added: 'I hope it will make people laugh. I said a lot more nice things than horrible but I don't know how they have edited it. I try not to be personal because you're dealing with people's livings.

'I really wanted to show the rest of the country how nice this part of Norfolk is. When the county's on TV it's usually somewhere like Burnham Market and I don't think that's typical of the real Norfolk.'
Mrs Harmer said she was looking forward to the programmes but joked that her husband was praying for a week's worth of power cuts and would quite like to disappear on a long bike ride until the screenings were over.
The couple decided to have a royal theme for the show and re-named their larger B&B rooms The Buckingham Room and The Sandringham Room, styling the smaller twin room The Clarence Room, after the late Queen Mother's home, Clarence House.
They also dotted patriotic paraphernalia around their home, sparking the row with a non-native B&B-owning guest.
Mrs Harmer also hit the headlines in April when she was one of three Norfolk finalists among 25 nationally in the Automobile Association's Britain's friendliest B&B competition.
The couple have two children, George and Mary, and Mrs Harmer has run Chimneys as a B&B for the past 10 years.
