A new series of Three in a Bed is scheduled on Wednesday 18th March...

The first show:

"A new series of the show in which B&B owners take turns to stay with one another. This episode features poetry writing, a run in with a razor, and pee buckets"

Oooh that's strange. Wonder why they are going back to the old format? Running out of B&B's probably.

Does make you wonder doesn't it. Surely there's still one or two in Blackpool we haven't seen yet?

Thanks for the new thread BG!

It's back? Woo hoo! I like to see the whole thing in one ep.

Is the lovely Stephen Mangan narrating?

I've looked and it kicks off series 4 with

Norfolk House, Newmarket

The Cromwell Arms, Romsey. If that's the right one it's a Fuller's pub

Full Circle Yurts, Lake District

Am interested to see if the format's the same.

Hopefully they will have listened to some of our gripes about FIAB and taken them onboard.

Let's hope so eh? Otherwise, if its morphed into 4IAB then its going to be just as frustrating.

Its on for an hour so hopefully they'll spend more time on the B&B's/rooms/breakfasts, rather than the silly activities.

Is it just an hourly show once a week or a daily show?

I think is a weekly show.....the Channel 4 tv listings page only go upto Tuesday 24th March (and I cant seem them listed as daily) so I'll check back in a couple of day to see if its listed for 26th.

Excellent news. Repeating the old format programmes at the same time as the current new FIAB series is on just highlights how much better the original format was. Looking forward to seeing these news shows.

Looking forward to this, hopefully it will be more like the original idea than the latest offering of four in a bed, which I must confess I only dip in and out of as there i not much point to it anymore, all useless "activities" and recaps. I really want this to be a proper competition and about the B&Bs and not the egoes of the owners so much.

Given up on 4iab recently. Thanks for the heads up BG - I'll give this a go, but I think my fellow posters have much more faith in Telly Execs than I have! I fully expect it to be even worse than 4iab has become

I am currently watching an old 3IAB series, I do prefer the whole thing done in an hour but don't like the verbal critics given at the end of each visit or the hint of what they are paying.

Much prefer the sitting round the table with the feed back forms.

Hopefully this new series will combine the best of both series.

It'll be interesting to see what format the new 3iaB follows. Generally, I can't be bothered with 4iaB any more - not least because it clashes with Bienvenue Chez Nous, the French version, which runs for 60 minutes each episode, shows far more of the hosts' areas (frequently the activity shows more of the area too) and more time is spent on breakfast and dinner (which is often cooked by the hosts - table d'hôte - and leads to much face-pulling and snide remarks by the other guests ) - it's just more interesting. It has more of what we all like to watch. 4iaB is dull in comparison and although I have this week's episodes recorded, I'm not motivated to find time to watch them.

Yes, this will be interesting to see if they go back to square one and start using the original format again. They did of course try repackaging the week long 4IAB as an hour long repeat. I wonder if that was them trying to get the best of both worlds but stopped as it didn't really work.

If it's back to only 3IAB with no more 4IAB are they more or less be admitting that the latter's had it's day? Here's hoping!

I might have given you duff information

It seems 4IAB is still airing next week so we'll have the best of both worlds!

Booo, BG, boooo.....!

How strange to have the two formats running, especially on the same days. Maybe it's their final market research to see which one to move forward with!

Thanks.

Thanks for starting the new thread BG 😃

I wonder if we'll all be 'bedded' out by the end of the week... 😉

If you've not seen FIAB from this last week, there may be a few spoilers of sorts in this, nothing major though...

We only came across Four In A Bed in the last year or so, and didn't know it was originally Three In A Bed... as relative newbies to the format, we've enjoyed FIAB for what it is, but it is noticeable even in just that time, how much of each episode is spent recapping on what's happened previously, and also far too much time spent on the activity, which - after all - doesn't really have anything to do with the merits or otherwise of the B&B in question.
It certainly seems an advantage to host first, especially if you're playing to win at all costs.

Spoiler

Quite a few of the old Three in a Bed eps had some old bat running a b&b. They thought this made them an expert and they would win! Of course running a b&b did not necessarily make them an expert and they didn't win! Bitter old bitches? Much?
