A Place In The Sun presenter Laura Hamilton, 38, has spoken out about her “presenting style” on the favourite Channel 4 property TV show and admitted that she won’t be to everyone’s taste. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the star addressed how negative comments hit differently depending on what they’re directed at and explained that she finds comments related to her personal life more difficult to “take”.

I appreciate that not everyone will like my presenting style on TV and that’s fine

Laura addressed her approach when it comes to reading hateful comments on social media following a panic attack which was sparked by trolling last year.

The presenter revealed: “I try not to look at stuff, for one.”

However, the star acknowledged that it’s often easier said than done.

Laura continued: “I try not to look at things online because it’s very easy, isn’t it? To get sucked in.”

“When it comes to my work I sort of don’t [mind] because I appreciate that not everyone will like my presenting style on TV and that’s fine.”

The Channel 4 favourite presenter is known for her upbeat and positive presenting style on the property show.

Last year the property expert took to social media to reveal that she had experienced a panic attack after reading abusive messages about her coffee shop, Lord Roberts On The Green.

Addressing the trolling, Laura explained that the comments got to her more as they were more “personal” compared to those about her TV presenting style.

She said: “You can never expect everyone to like you, but I think with the shop it was different because the shop is in my community.

“It’s a family thing and we were trying to do the best for our community; it wasn’t about my TV career.”

The star went on to clarify that her being on TV does not mean she should be a target for abusive comments.

Laura continued: “I don’t know if people think they can say things and it’s okay because you’re on telly you can take it.

“But actually, no,” she quipped.

Recently the star announced that she is selling her coffee shop Lord Roberts On The Green to make way for new projects.

Addressing the sale, Laura said: “Now it’s [the cafe] is in a great shape it looks beautiful but I know that it has so much potential for the business to grow even further.

“Whether that’s turning it into more of an evening restaurant a couple of days of the week or whatever.”

Laura explained that she doesn’t have the time to grow the business even further.

She continued: “There’s just so much potential that the business has and I dont have the time to do that with it.

“My other passions are telly and I’ve got lots of other things and ideas that I want to do.”

A Place In The Sun is on weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm.
