Four in a Bed

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 10.30pm, 7Two Don’t let the sexy ti­tle fool you. What do you think this is, SBS Two? As in its fore­run­ner se­ries, Three in a Bed, Four in a Bed is about sets of Bri­tish bed-and-break­fast own­ers (in­cred­i­bly there are 20 ‘‘ edi­tions’’ of the pro­gram in this de­but se­ries from 2010) who stay in each other’s es­tab­lish­ments and pay the amount they think their stay was worth. This week’s bat­tle of the B&Bs starts in Black­pool, with the lads from De-Lovely. Part­ners in life and hos­pi­tal­ity, Ste­vie and Leigh run De-Lovely, a B&B with a bur­lesque theme. ‘‘ De-Lovely is the ul­ti­mate mar­riage of bur­lesque and ba­con,’’ gushes Ste­vie. ‘‘ Here you’ve got the bur­lesque,’’ he says, wav­ing his arms around at the gar­ish red decor in one of the rooms, ‘‘ and in the morn­ing you’ve got the ba­con.’’ Not with­out laughs, but you’ll never again see B&Bs in quite the same light.
