Former Homes Under The Hammer star Lucy Alexander, 49, fronted Channel 4 series Best Of Both Worlds back in 2017, in which she helped members of the public buy their dream home. An ex contestant named Ayden shared a clip of the moment her and her partner Peter discussed their move to a suburban area with Lucy while sat in her car. Within the clip, she could be heard saying she believes the couple were “not quite ready” to move out of the city. Ayden captioned the 15-second clip: “Two years ago today @LucyAlexanderTV helped me and @peteduthie house hunt in Best Of Both Worlds.
“We weren’t quite ready for the suburbs back then, but look at us now!”
Lucy responded to the tweet, commenting: “You were great on that show! Xx.”
Ayden’s partner Pete also shared the video with the comment: “I should probably watch this.”
Pete’s comment prompted Lucy to reply: “I’m offended!!”
Pete responded: “I just know I’d cringe too much watching myself!”
Agreeing she also found the video cringey, Lucy added: “Lol… I know mate. I feel same way #doireallysoundlikethat.”(sic)
Ayden added: “Hahaha Lucy, Pete can be super shy when it comes to all the weird and wonderful situations I put him in… sorry not sorry.”
Lucy began fronting the Channel 4 show just months after leaving her veteran role on Homes Under The Hammer.
The presenter began presenting the BBC property show alongside Martin Roberts in 2003.
She announced she would be stepping down from her role after 13 years in 2016.
Earlier this year, Lucy revealed what she wasn’t so good at during her time on the show.
The mother-of-two said she found it difficult to remember her lines and often made it up on the spot.
She told The Sun: “Usually I make things up as I go, I think a bit of spontaneity on camera is essential.”
The property expert went on to say she misses the show, adding: “I miss presenting Homes Under The Hammer because I got to look around so many different properties.
“Occasionally I catch myself watching a re-run on TV, and I can tell how old the show is by how dated my clothes are.”
Homes Under The Hammer airs weekdays from 10am on BBC One.
