Channel 4 is getting back into business with former Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom. The PSB has green-lit production on Escape To The Manor Hotel, a twenty episode historic hotel series that is set to be fronted by the couple.
Escape To The Manor Hotel will see Steph and Dom meet brave families who plan to open, or already run, their own historic hotels in some of Britain’s most beautiful locations. They will be on hand to help them try to turn their dream into a successful reality.
From twin brothers on the brink of renovating a 19th Century relic into an Italian inspired B&B, to a couple who are opening the doors to their 18th century boutique hotel for the very first time. Across the series, we’ll see a whole host of stunning, interesting and quirky buildings as Steph and Dom get their hands dirty helping the owners make a go of their business. “Let’s hope we can inspire some of these new hoteliers! Quick sticks and chin chin!”, Steph and Dom said in a statement.
“This series will explore the realities of running a hotel in some of the most beautiful locations in the UK”, said Channel 4’s Head of Daytime David Sayer, who commissioned the series. “We’re thrilled to be working with Steph and Dom on the series and excited to see the outcome of their journey across the country.”
Escape To The Manor Hotel is being produced by indie Freeform Productions. Michelle Heeley is the executive producer. “We are thrilled to be making this series for C4″, she said. “The hoteliers we are meeting are awe inspiring – they are determined to make their dream of running a hotel work. And Steph and Dom are the perfect hosts – of course they are great company but they also have masses of experience from running their own hotel.”
