A Northampton B&B owner will be doing her best to impress her fellow Four in a Bed contestants on Channel 4 this evening (Wednesday, October 28).

Amanda Lyon-Brown is among the four hotel owners for this week's round, all vying to earn the most for their stays and be crowned the best value.

Ambles in East Park Parade is today's featured B&B with Amanda and her Norfolk terrier Trudy under the spotlight at 5pm and on All4.

It has been a long time coming for the landlady after filming the series a year ago but it was delayed from going on television by the coronavirus pandemic.

"It's very strange as we have been waiting a year for it as it was delayed because of Covid but it's finally here," she told the Chronicle & Echo.

Amanda, who was born and bred in Northampton, only took over the reins at Ambles in March last year as the former London-based lawyer's PA always wanted to run a B&B.

She applied to go on Four in a Bed not long after and was accepted, with filming spanning two weeks in October 2019 at hotels in Durham, Telford and Chepstow.

Each B&B hosts the other owners for a night and the guests pay whatever they think the stay is worth, with the winner being the place that gets back the most from what they usually charge.

Amanda said: "It was exciting when they came to Ambles as I had met them all beforehand so we all knew each other and hopefully that comes across that we all got on."
