They've had twin rooms both times so far so maybe it's just business?
Yes, exactly. But then again they are of a certain age who wouldn't necessarily want to flaunt it. We will nevair know.

Just had a thought - maybe the unacceptable thing that causes V & S to leave the last place is that the room only has a double bed?

Hey everyone, not been able to post for a while. Just watched it on catchup, I work shifts!
...
I suppose the resemblance of Brummie bloke to Noddy Holder has already been done?!
Welcome back.
I don't think it's been mentioned, but I've certainly noticed it, the accent and the wispy hair rather than anything else.

First thought on Ben & Katie - how lucky are they to be able to live in that house? It's gorgeous

However, I'm hoping this was tongue-in-cheek but I thought it was a bit bad of Katie to say that if any of the others played up then she would pull "the pregnant card" (she said it in the first few mins).

I wondered about the Veronica and Saida "partners" thing as well - maybe they are a couple but just don't want to say on national TV?...
Hi, love the screen name

It was a beautiful place last night and yes, I do think Katie was being totally tongue in cheek.

I looked at The Richwood Hotel site and kind of formed the impression that Veronica and Saida are involved together, not just business partners, but if they don't make a point of saying, I'm not bothered.

They do specifically mention that they're 'gay friendly' on their Welcome page (and 'pet friendly' too)

To be honest,I can't say it looks my kind of place at all, or their site, but good luck to them

Well, I say that now, we shall see how things turn out tonight

Oh and I am hopelessly in love with Ben!

I hope to see him coming out of the shower in a future episode!
Hey hey hey! I saw him first... Get to the back of the queue

The voiceover described them as 'partners' rather than than 'business partners' last night so I think that's probably the case.

............I wondered about the Veronica and Saida "partners" thing as well - maybe they are a couple but just don't want to say on national TV?..............
I'm getting confused between the two female pairs. Saida is one of the older pair, isn't she? I didn't even wonder about them - I assumed they were possibly widows (or golf, etc., widows) who chose to go on holiday together.

I did wonder about the younger couple (no idea of their names). Maybe Ch4 are aware of comments (not to be confused with criticism) on the number of gay couples they've had on this show, and wanted it downplayed. Or there may be other reasons, such as a husband/partner who should have been there being ill.

It doesn't matter, really. But there's no harm in speculation.

Oh well - I was wrong about Saida and Veronica. My gaydar obviously need tuning!

Yes, Katie was tongue-on-cheek about the pregnancy card but she will certainly need all the help she can get when the baby is born.

The management replies on TripAdvisor for The Richwood are a hoot! Check out the replies to the bad reviews!

Oh thank heavens, doesn't feel right without a gay Blackpool couple LOL!

It's going to get to the point where every gay-owned B&B in Blackpool is going have been on FIAB!

Ben and Katie are a lovely couple!

Their B&B is amazing - not too sure about the yurts: nice idea, but I've reached the point in life where bathroom facilities are paramount to personal comfort. However, I'd be tempted to give yurting a go, just for the experience (preferably during summer).

"we don't take orders at the table" = "we're going to cook it in advance and let it slowly congeal in the oven".

I used to live near Torbay and I can tell you this is very typical of many B&Bs in the area.

I have not come across it before.

It is pathetic.

Very much cook it the night before and re heat it.

Sorry I didn't mean the breakfast arrangements necessarily, just the style and ambience of the hotel.

We only see Paul commenting negatively on Cathy. He must have talked about more than just her.

To me, its a bit "meh"

Probably good value if you like that sort of thing but its not really my cup of tea.

There are parts of Torquay that are very nice, and some lovely hotels, but an awful lot of B&Bs and hotels cater strictly to the 35 per night Saga Holiday crowd.
