Channel 5 turns portal property porn trend into a new TV show

The millions of Brits whose pastimes include looking at the nation's upmarket homes on Rightmove now have their own show.

Another TV show has launched that capitalises on the growing public fascination with other people’s upmarket homes on Rightmove, turning it into reality TV gold.

It joins a crowded stable of programmes that now pack the schedules of many TV stations including the grandaddy of them all, Location, Location, Location.

The latest is Sally Lindsay’s Poshest Sleepover on Channel 5 which features the Coronation Street actress staying a night at some of the UK’s plushest properties.

The first, due to air at 7pm this Saturday, features the five-bedroom 8,051 sq.ft home of London developer and Mayfair resident Kam Babaee and partner Ana Totoc (pictured, above).

Mansion developer

Babaee is the CEO of the K10 Group, which specialises in building and refurbishing mansions for the super-rich in and around the capital.

He is the business partner of Phones 4U billionaire John Caudwell, and his father used to build mansions and private palaces for the Shah of Iran and Queen Farah but, when the revolution in Iran happened in 1979, a young Babaee was sent to London to live and he made London his home and has never looked back.

The programme initially visits the couple’s glitzy property in Mayfair before moving to K10’s latest completed project Culross House off Park Lane, which is for sale at £30 million.

Other mansions to be featured in the programme include Ugbrooke House in Chudleigh, Devon, the home of society upper-crust the Honourable Alexander Clifford.

Sally Lindsay’s Poshest Sleepover is made by Chatterbox, whose founders have made some of the UK’s best-known reality TV shows including Gogglebox, UK Border Force and Come Dine With Me.

Alison Quirk, co-owner of Chatterbox, says: “Filming during this era of COVID-19 is not without its challenges, but we were fortunate to be able to film the series during the warm summer months of 2020 so we had the advantage of being able to do a lot of filming outdoors.”

  1. You can not always believe PR Nigel for sure – unless of course it us, we though are public relations/an advocacy for the whole of the proptech sector, and do not handle single media stars – apart from Zara – but she is in her own cockapoo starlit ecosystem.
