Jonnie Irwin, host of the popular UK real estate reality TV show called A Place in the Sun, opened up about the time a guest on the show tried to stop himself from laughing during filming by stabbing himself in the hand with a knife.
“I was like ‘What is he doing?’ He comes back two minutes later and we continued so I told him the price. He kept straight-faced, albeit with a slight smile and a wince, and we finished that section of the show,” he continued.
After filming, Jonnie asked the guest why he had run into the kitchen. “He told me ‘When I ran off I ran into the kitchen, found the kitchen drawer, got a knife, put a knife in my pocket, ran back out, and every time I thought I was going to start laughing I stabbed myself in the hand,'” Jonnie said.
The show is currently not able to film new episodes due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
