Jasmine Harman, 45, is currently filming new episodes for A Place In The Sun in Portugal and had a frustrating time yesterday when a number of things went wrong. In one particularly “embarrassing” gaffe, the TV presenter thought there was something wrong with her hire car, only to be informed it was her who had made the error.

I couldn’t get the car started

The A Place In The Sun host spoke to her followers on Instagram, as she lounged beside a swimming pool while wearing a blue floral dress.

Jasmine had explained: “It’s been one of those days today, it started this morning when my phone wasn’t plugged in properly and my battery died in the night. 

“So my alarm didn’t go off this morning, so I didn’t wake up until one of my colleagues came knocking on my door and I had to get ready in a massive rush, so that was a stressful start to the morning, then this afternoon I went to start my hire car and it wouldn’t start. 

“I don’t know what was wrong with it but I couldn’t get the car started.”

Today Jasmine updated her fans on the car situation, as she filmed herself inside the vehicle.

The TV personality then explained how she had made a mistake when starting the manual automobile.

She said: “Good morning, guess what, good news this morning. 

“I have managed to start my car. Jonas my cameraman helped me figure out what’s wrong with it and it turned out it’s just me not putting my foot on the clutch when I was trying to start it.

“How embarrassing, I’ve forgotten how to drive,” she added.

Jasmine had been soaking up the sun on the Algarve coast as she filmed new episodes of A Place In The Sun, despite Portugal being hit by the UK’s latest travel restrictions.

“Portugal may be on the Amber list now,” Jasmine wrote in a recent Instagram post, “but I’m here to tell you, that doesn’t affect the feel-good-factor of being on a beach on the Algarve.

“Staying safe: (including factor 50 after getting caught out last week!) luckily it is easy to stay socially distant when the beaches are quiet and I’m just enjoying the opportunity to be here.”

Confirming she won’t get any special treatment when she lands in the UK, Jasmine revealed: “Yes I will have to quarantine when I return, but I’m grateful and happy to be here and back to work.”

Sporting a summer glow, the 45-year-old wowed in a monochrome leopard print bikini and chic sun hat as she posed for the camera.

“So wish I could be there,” said one jealous fan.

Another typed: “How lovely Jasmine. You all give us hope in getting abroad hopefully sometime soon.”

“Enjoy! It is beyond beautiful to see travel returning…” shared another fan.

While a fourth remarked: “Wow you look amazing!”

Speaking on the pressures of appearing glamorous while on the show, Jasmine previously revealed to Express.co.uk: “I feel like out of all the lovely A Place In The Sun presenters, we have got such a great team, I feel like out of the girls, out of the women… I’m the oldest and the fattest.

“But I’m the most experienced in the show, so it’s got advantages and disadvantages, but in my head, I do sort of compare.

“I look at that lovely dress she’s wearing and then think, ‘I’m too old’.”
