A Place In The Sun presenter Lee Juggernauth says foreign holidays should be allowed as long as there is ‘clarity’ regarding the rules around travel.
The topic was up for debate on Wednesday’s Good Morning Britain as people decide to escape the UK for some sun amid the ongoing pandemic and concerns about the Indian coronavirus variant.
Lee, who is set to jet off to Greece to film more episodes of the property hunting programme, urged people to be ‘cautious’ if travelling abroad rather than rule holidays out altogether.
Speaking to hosts Adil Ray and Susanna Reid, he said: ‘I think we’re all in that middle ground where we just don’t know what’s going on. It is confusing but I think should we stop holidays? No. I just think it’s about being a bit more cautious.
‘A Place In The Sun on Channel 4, the show that I work on, they are very very careful. We haven’t filmed for over six to eight months because production has been ceased. We’re now resuming things and they’ve been very prudent about watching the different restrictions that happens in certain countries that we’re going to.
‘For example I’m travelling to Greece hopefully next week to start filming and everything has been done to make sure that there are measures in place, that we do quarantine, that we do social distance, that we do wear masks, that we are tested.

‘There are a lot of things in place to make sure that these things are happening.’
He also praised Channel 4, on which A Place In the Sun airs, for being able to continue to make shows during the lockdown safely and without spreading the virus.
‘Channel 4 were able to make 80 shows during the pandemic,’ Lee said, ‘and we’ve not had a single case of Covid.
‘I think as long as there’s clarity…what we’re finding now is that there’s just a lot of…we just don’t know the situation, the people who aren’t getting vaccines for example.
‘We are getting to the point where hopefully most of the country if not everyone will be vaccinated but there’s a lack of information for people. As long as we have that I don’t see why we can’t move forward.
‘We’ve seen from the football at the weekend, it’s trials like that that will hopefully make us move forward.’
Brits booking a place in the sun comes as England entered the next stage of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s lockdown roadmap on May 17.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
