Four in a Bed…One Year Later

Catching up with Four in a Bed Winners

Last October we had the privilege of being on (and winning!) Four in a Bed on Channel 4. Recently we appeared in insideKENT magazine to talk about our experience being on the show. Here’s what they wrote:

Scored as the perfect stay and the best breakfast of the competition, The Bull Hotel won Four in a Bed, a British reality television show that has been airing on Channel 4. The show involves four B&B owners, who take turns to stay with one another and pay what they consider fair for their stay.

“We loved it, it was absolutely nerve wracking, but we loved it!” says The Bull owner Lygia Fontanella and Mary Murray, the breakfast chef who became the star of series 13 of Four in a Bed, which was broadcast in October last year.

One year later and Mary is still being stopped on the way home, at the supermarket, in Kings Lynn and even in a restaurant in Norfolk. Guests travel from all parts of the UK just to stay in one of the boutique bedrooms at The Bull and try Mary’s fresh, cooked-to-order English breakfast which became famous during the Channel 4 reality show. Also, more and more wedding couples seems to want ‘TV star’ Mary to cook their wedding breakfast.

“The filming itself took over two weeks with over 100 hours of filming for each 23-minute programme: it was absolutely exhausting!” Says Mary. “Suddenly, tiny faults became amplified into arguments worthy of a war. But by the end of it – and I guess because we won – we just had such a good time and we met some really lovely hard-working people.”

You can still catch The Bull on Four in a Bed; just search Channel 4’s 4OD for series 13.
