A Place in the Sun buyer was thrilled to secure her dream home in Spain on Wednesday's instalment of the popular Channel 4 property programme.

Sara Damergi hosted the show earlier in the week, which saw Donna and best pal Savannah snap up her dream holiday home in Spain. The trio travelled to Roquetas de Mar with a budget of £70,000 to find a suitable two-bed apartment in the Spanish region.

The final property they looked at saw Donna become emotional, as she snapped up her dream getaway for £67,241, reports Liverpool Echo. In an interview following the episode, on the show's official website, Donna reflected on the move - saying it added 20 years to her life.

She said: "It completed on 20 th March. We’d booked flights over in April so we spent a week there and I went back in May with my mum and my daughter, and then Savannah and I went in June and then again August with a friend – it really has been used."

She added: "We love Roquetas del Mar, which we can reach by bus from Almeria airport, for €5. It’s got a long, sandy fabulous beach and loads of shops – Mango, Bershka, Primark – but also the traditional side.

“I had never been to the area before, but as I was searching online for properties over the years, dreaming of buying somewhere, I could see the prices increasing and focused on Costa Almeria. But this is what I’ve wanted to do for a very long time.

“I am selling up the marital home and saving up so I have the financial resources to get a visa and move over. It might take four years – but at 58 then I’ll be ready! Savannah is looking to do the same. It’s definitely been the best thing I’ve ever done. It’s been such a lift that I think it’s added 20 years onto my life."

However, Donna soon stumbled across an issue following a night out, as she was left with a flooded kitchen from the result of a broken boiler. She explained: "We came back from a night out at 2am and found a flooded kitchen. We were scooping water out of the window with bowls.

"Then we had no water for two days so we showered on the beach. But I found a great local engineer to sort it out, and when the fridge broke down a bit after that, I gave him a call and again he helped replace it for me."
