A PLACE In The Sun is Channel 4’s sleepy lifestyle show that helps Brits imagine a quieter life in a balmy foreign country.
In other words, about as far away as life in No10 for Boris Johnson.
So perhaps it’s not surprising the new PM has chosen the long-running series as his favourite TV show ever.
He made the revelation while also admitting he’d recently been glued to ITV reality series Our Shirley Valentine Summer, described as Love Island for OAPs.
Socialite Lizzie Cundy – a star of that show – made the revelation after bumping into Boris on his bike last month in central London.
She said: “I was running across the road at Shaftesbury Avenue and a cyclist runs into me. To my surprise it’s our now prime minister Boris.

“He said, ‘I loved you in Shirley Valentine but I have to say my favourite show is A Place In The Sun.’
“I laughed and thanked him. We had a quick selfie and he waved on his way off.”
It’s going to be a fair few weeks before Boris gets time to spend at any place in the sun.
