Made in Chelsea star Francis Boulle is used to spending his time travelling the world staying in luxury accommodation. He’s not who you’d usually expect to find in a B&B…so naturally that’s exactly where we challenged him to stay for eviivo’s National B&B Week.

Found in the heart of the Cotswolds, Francis spent a night “roughing it” at Abbots Grange and was more than a little surprised by his experience.

The reality star kicked off his stay with a game of croquet (on his own), before getting angry at the ball boy on the tennis courts, as well as his agent who failed to tell him about the on-site helipad.

By the time he had a soak in the bath – complete with rubber duckies, of course – he was certain there’d been a mix up: “Oh itis a B&B…”

Safe in the knowledge that he wasn’t in the wrong place, Francis got into his four poster and fell asleep at approximately 19.37. He woke the following morning to enjoy a tasty Full English – eggs cooked to precisely  68.5 degrees – before helping himself to the jam jars and mini shampoos before check-out.

Here’s what he got up to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5kk8oSXYgc

Francis is an ambassador for National B&B Week on 18th – 24th March. He is working with eviivo to encourage people to stay in B&B’s throughout the week, where hosts will be offering extra perks such free cream teas and chauffeurs to the local pub! Head to https://bandbweek.com/offers/ to see all the offers and to book a stay.
