Next Episode of Four in a Bed is
Four in a Bed is a British reality television game show that has been airing on Channel 4 since 22 November 2010. The show involves four B&B owners, who take turns to stay with one another - and pay what they consider fair for their stay. The winner is the establishment named best value for money.
This brand new competition kicks off in Malvern, Worcestershire and Copper Beech House where retired pro-rugby player Steve Lloyd and partner Kathy Leather run their own B&B. John and Della McGinn from Dog in a Doublet, Peterborough are wowed by the décor, but reaction to the bathroom from Phil and Sharon Hobson from Torcroft Boutique B&B is less favourable. During an afternoon rugby training session, it's Mark Price, who along with wife Lowrie, from Rhydspence Inn, Herefordshire who surprise the rest of the B&Bers. Breakfast for Steve is eggs-acting as foodie John puts him to the test, but its Phil's questioning as to the quality of the bangers at feedback that Steve and Kathy find hard to swallow.
The second visit is to the pet friendly Dog in a Doublet - pub and restaurant in Peterborough where Della McGinn's passion for animals comes a close second to husband John's passion for food. Upon arrival, Phil and Sharon from the Torcroft Boutique B&B find something unusual at the bottom of their loo. An afternoon spent helping out at the small holding sees Lowrie from Rhydspence Inn bond with Gordon the pig, while Kathy from Copper Beech House overcomes her fear of horses. Come morning, not all the guests are bright and breezy so at breakfast pro chef John attempts to make amends, but it's Phil and Sharon's feedback that leaves the hosts suspicious of game playing.
For the third visit of the week, the B&Bers head to the Torcroft Boutique B&B in Torquay, south Devon, where Europhiles Phil and Sharon Hobson hope their added extras will win over their rivals. Still smarting from their feedback, John and Della have packed an agenda and are determined to give the Torcroft the same treatment they received as hosts. An afternoon spent sailing blows away the tension but come breakfast the gloves are off and Phil takes a battering. At feedback, with guests questioning the value for money, Phil and Sharon are left bemused and suspect retribution is at hand.
The final visit is to the 600 year old Rhydspence Inn in Herefordshire, which local couple and now owners, Mark and Lowrie Price have known their whole lives. All are charmed by the inn's medieval character, though the everyday practicalities prove painful for some. In the afternoon there's a visit to literary hot spot Hay-on-Wye where the rivals turn their hand to literary prose, but there's still underlying tension between some of the guests. Come breakfast, foodie John turns up the heat for Mark, which leaves him floundering over a kipper order.
It's the final day of the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for the last time to find out what they've been paid and to settle some scores. Copper Beech House are first to host, and Steve and Kathy want Phil to swallow his synthetic sausage comments. John and Della from Dog in a Doublet want to challenge Phil and Sharon's comments but it's the payment that they find hard to digest. Phil and Sharon from Torcroft Boutique B&B are third and are keen to learn why Mark and Lowrie think their boutique B&B isn't unique. Finally, it's Rhydspence Inn and owners Mark and Lowrie want to rewind the clock and get some answers. There are tears, recriminations and accusations as the payments are revealed and the winner is finally announced.

The second visit is to Barnfield B&B in St Osyth, Essex, run by Christine and her toy boy husband Paul Harman. Here, as well as offering rooms, Christine also runs spiritual retreats.

On arrival, Raouf and Chrissie from the New Promenade Hotel in Blackpool find they are actually staying in an outbuilding, whilst Robin and Liza Watson from Tall John's House in the Brecon Beacons love the modern gadgets in their room. During the afternoon, the guests get acquainted with some llamas, ending in a parade competition. Vicky from The Terrace makes an instant animal connection, which leaves quite an impression on her fellow competitors. At dinner, paid parking at the hotel becomes talk of the table, while Raouf lets slip his hotel has more of a fighting spirit. Come breakfast, an additional pound for a fancy coffee causes a gripe with the guests.
The second visit is to budget option New Promenade Hotel in Blackpool, owned by Raouf Elnagaar, who is joined by friend Chrissie Greenwood. On inspection, Vicky finds a teetering toilet seat, Robin and Liza fall out of love with the budget feel, and Clarky and Katie are astonished to find muck on the taps. In the afternoon, the guests ride Blackpool's famous and historic tram, but first they must get it ready for service with a wash and a scrub. Robin reveals his impressive family lineage when he spots the Blackpool Tower. Come dinner, Raouf reveals his sensitive side, but his experience in hospitality fails to show. In the morning, the guests are impressed with Raouf's budget breakfast, with Clarky's sausage a delight and Vicky's egg cooked to perfection.
The third visit is to Oxford, where Vicky Crawford has opened up her small three-bedroom terraced house, aptly named The Terrace. On inspection, two pairs of guests discover an array of filthy finds including thick dust, hairs, and a pre-sucked sweet. In the afternoon the guests head for a spot of punting. Whilst most sit back and enjoy the ride, Raouf's childish mood spoils the group's time on the river. Come dinner, Vicky gets a dusting down when Clarky grills her over the cleanliness of her accommodation. Vicky fights back but doesn't get the royal seal of approval. At breakfast, Vicky's coddled eggs are set to impress, but Raouf isn't thrilled with the appearance of her dog.
The fourth and final visit is to Tall John's House in the Brecon Beacons, where Robin and Liza Watson own a grand Georgian mansion in the middle of the Welsh countryside. On arrival, the guests are wowed by the historic building and rooms. Raouf, Chrissie, Clarky and Katie dig deep to find fault but can only find small problems. In the afternoon, the Welsh weather finds the guests in the billiard room for a quick-fire knockout game around the table. Come dinner the guests gush over their friendship but, when it comes to the question of future meet-ups, Vicky drops a bombshell by revealing she wouldn't like to see anyone again. At breakfast the mood from the night before is clear to the table as Vicky sits in near silence. However, the food goes down a treat with compliments all round and a Caribbean pancake wins brownie points.
It's the final day of the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for the last time to find out what they've been paid and to settle some scores. The White Hart Hotel is up first and management team Clarky and Katie want to park the issue of paying for their car park.

After a lively game of bowls, the B&B'ers head for dinner, where youngsters Sam Wilkins and Henry Russell of The Bear and Swan in Chew Magna, come under scrutiny about their age and experience by their more senior competitors. Elaine faces a tough time in the kitchen, but it's over feedback that the heat is really turned up.
The second visit sees twenty-somethings Sam Wilkins and Henry Russell confident that their five star rooms above a quintessential English country pub, The Bear and Swan, in Chew Magna, Somerset, will have their guests raising their glasses to them at the end of the week. Unfortunately for the boys, Jorge's room leaves him feeling like he's been drinking from a dodgy keg and he isn't impressed by the rubber duck race in the local stream. Tony, however, throws everything he's got at it- literally! Sam and Henry get a grilling over dinner, but the next morning, the guests are hungry for more sleep after a noisy night and when it comes to feedback, the lads are left with a bad taste in their mouths.
The third visit of the week is to the Guesthouse East in Eastbourne, where childhood sweethearts Tony and Lisa Partridge are hoping their guests will fall head over heels for their family friendly B&B.

A kite flying contest that afternoon leaves everyone struggling to rise to the occasion, although one of the guests is rewarded for their perseverance! Over dinner, Martyn doesn't endear himself to Tony and Lisa,and his demands over breakfast lead to Lisa letting slip about her true feelings towards him, which are far from flattering! The resulting feedback has the hosts questioning the lack of love towards them.

It's the final day of the competition and the B&B owners are meeting for the last time to find out what they've been paid and to settle some scores. Unfortunately, Jorge Mesquita of the Shirley B&B has been taken ill, so the remaining B&B'ers are fighting it out for the prized plaque. The Hillcroft kicks things off and hosts Martyn and Elaine want answers from both Tony and Lisa and Sam and Henry but they're only happy with one set of answers. Next, Sam Wilkins and Henry from the Bear and Swan get a wakeup call with the feedback they receive, but nothing like the surprise they get when they find out the amount they've been underpaid by one of their rivals. Finally, it's Tony and Lisa Partridge from the Guesthouse East, who are eager to understand how they upset Martyn and Elaine but it's a reason for an underpayment that sees things get fiery round the table.
