An Anstruther property adviser, more familiar with looking through the keyhole, found herself staring down the barrel of a foriegn television network’s camera lens recently.

Anna Morton (45), of Pagan Osborne had a cameo in a Canadian programme similar to the UK’s ‘A Place in the Sun: Home or Away’.

HGTV’s ‘Live Here, Buy This’ shows a young couple three properties in three different locations in a bid to find their dream home.

A local expert at each property guides a camera crew around and the couple has to then choose one.

In the edition featuring Anna, St Andrews was up against Provence and Barcelona. Unfortunately Provence won but Anna enjoyed it.

“Somehow I got volunteered!” she said. “I must admit, it was nerve-wracking.

“I used to think I might like being a blonde Kirsty Allsopp, however it was less glamorous than I thought, lots of duplication and hanging around, but the day was fun and the team were great. I really enjoyed showing off some of our stunning Fife properties and scenery and sharing it with the rest of the world.”
