Little Lever pub Jolly Carter to feature on Channel 4 show Four in a Bed
WHEN Angie Sutcliffe settles down to watch Four in a Bed this afternoon, she will be just as intrigued as other viewers to discover what visitors think of a Little Lever B&B.
The mother-of-two, aged 52, can be seen appearing on the Channel 4 programme, throwing open the doors of The Jolly Carter on Church Street.
All this week, Mrs Sutcliffe and husband Phill have been taking part in the show, which sees participants stay in each other’s bed and breakfast establishments before marking them on criteria including cleanliness, local amenities and food.
Although she knows which B&B was crowned winner, she has no idea what the others had to say about The Jolly Carter until the episode is screened at 5pm.
She said: “We know we were truthful and honest and nice. But from watching the programme before, not everyone is.”
Following their stays, which took the couple to B&Bs in Cheltenham, Maidstone and Llandudno, they paid what they considered a fair rate for the night.
Mrs Sutcliffe said: “I think they thought we were a little bit too nice. I don’t like being horrible, we were probably not the best people to be in a programme where you criticise people.
“But we were just ourselves, we love people. We love our customers and we love our staff. I cried a lot.”
But despite the tears and admitting being a “nervous wreck”, it was an experience the pair enjoyed.
Mrs Sutcliffe, who was runner-up on The Weakest Link seven years ago, said: “It was great. We really enjoyed it, I would do it again.
“There’s a few surprises, that’s all I’m going to tell you.”
Mrs Sutcliffe and her husband, who worked in the air force as a catering officer for 34 years, ran the B&B from January to October and have since left.
They now run Little Spadgers, a themed parties, mascots and catering company that features the Little Lever Beaver.
n Four in a Bed is on Channel 4 at 5pm.
