When hit reality TV show The Hotel Inspector returns to Channel 5 with a new series next week, world renowned hotelier Alex Polizzi will be faced with naked bodies all over the shop when she visits the Clover Spa in Birmingham…
Called in to assist the flagging nudist retreat, Alex reportedly had to agree to go eau naturelle herself in order to “fit in” with the butt naked staff and guests.
The Daily Star reports, “As Alex wanders around the hotel to get a taster, she comes face-to-face with the guests walking about starkers. And she kept cracking up during the recording.”
Of the ‘special’ hotel, Alex said, “Obviously somewhere inside this 40-year-old carapace is a 14-year-old girl giggling about seeing a man’s willy…
“I’m struggling seeing all these men with their bits out.”
The paper adds, “However owner Tim, 56, who also walks around naked, gets his own back, by asking her to ‘go native’.”
Alex apparently reluctantly acquiesces but is then “horrified” when, having scrambled double quick time into the hot tub, a naked Tim joins her!
She said, “This is off the scale, unusual and unnerving. I might find it easier to talk to you when I’m fully clothed.
“I have never had someone approach me naked for a business meeting before.”
The new series of The Hotel Inspector debuts on Channel 5 on Thursday, July 5 at 9pm.
Here’s what C5 say of the new series…
Hoteliers of Britain beware – Alex Polizzi is back! The Hotel Inspector will return to Channel 5 this summer.
The ninth series of the show will see Alex back on her quest to transform some of Britain’s most desperate hotels and B&Bs into successful business concerns.
From a naturist hotel in a residential suburb of Birmingham, to a grand hotel in Eastbourne run by a flamboyant real-life Sheikh and a 600 year-old Inn in St Albans supposedly haunted by a Tudor ghost, Alex is faced with some of her biggest challenges yet.
Along the way, The Hotel Inspector encounters eye-popping décor, questionable cleanliness and families fighting amongst themselves. She’s also tasked with turning round the fortunes of a hotel described by one reviewer as “The Fawlty Towers of Essex”.
Alex will also revisit two hotels from previous series – the African Queen, a floating canal boat on the Thames, and the Walpole Bay in Margate, to see whether her words have been turned into profits.
Confirming the news, Alex said: “I am delighted to be returning as the Hotel Inspector for this new series. As ever, I promise to expose the real problems within the hotel industry and possibly a little more besides. Maybe viewers will get the chance to see my cheeky side too.”
We can’t wait!
