Jasmine Harman

 

Television

Jasmine has recently finished filming a follow-up to the very personal BBC1 documentary 'My Hoarder Mum and Me' called 'Britain's Biggest Hoarders'. She helps some of the country's worst hoarders to begin the journey of letting go, and continues with her attempts to overcome her own Mother's compulsive hoarding.

Jasmine has spent a most of the last 8 years abroad, filming Channel 4's award-winning show A Place in the Sun - Home or Away, and has filmed over 200 episodes all over the world. From Bavaria to Barbados, Sydney to Slovenia and Tobago to Tenerife, no stone has been left unturned on her quest to travel the globe and find the best properties for her house-hunters.

Since 2004 when Jasmine was selected from hundreds of applicants to present A Place in the Sun – Home or Away, it has gone from strength to strength. Recently nominated for RTS and Broadcast awards and winner of a prestigious TRIC award, it has proven to be extremely popular in it's prime slot as part of Channel 4's Friday evening line-up, where it has more than doubled previous ratings.

The programme is also broadcast daily on More4, Discovery Real Time and Travel & Living, as well as channels throughout Europe and the rest of the world, some as far-reaching as New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. She is a natural and popular presenter who represents a generation of stylish, 30-something women.

Jasmine has also featured in property, travel and health & fitness programmes for GMTV, This Morning, The Travel Channel and Wedding TV.

Expertise

Jasmine is an in-demand writer and commentator on topics such as overseas property, travel and homes, and has written features for Company, Living Abroad, and My Travel magazines. She is the resident travel columnist at LOOK magazine where you can read her weekly travel tips, and a regular contributor to A Place in the Sun magazine.

Background

Prior to working in television, Jasmine had a successful career in the Health Club industry. She is a qualified fitness instructor and lived in the Algarve for several years, working as Marketing Manager for a luxury health resort. It was here that she began writing professionally and developed her passion for broadcast, hosting her own twice-weekly live magazine show on the Algarve’s most popular radio station - Kiss FM.

Jasmine is passionate about health and well-being. She enjoys boxercise, salsa and Savate as well as pampering herself with beauty treatments and holistic therapies. She has been a vegetarian for almost 30 years and really enjoys experimenting with new recipes and cuisines.

From skiing on the Austrian Alps to discovering perfect pizza in Puglia, Jasmine finds time to sneak away to some of her favourite holiday destinations found whilst travelling the globe with A Place In The Sun. When at home she loves nothing more than spending time with her family. As the eldest of seven children there are plenty of people to catch up with.

She grew up in Hackney, East London but has defected and gone South of the river where she now lives with husband Jon and their dog Shadow!

Jasmine supports a number of Charity projects. Recent events include taking 192 seriously ill children on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando with Dreamflight, trading billions of pounds on the stock market to raise money for Breast Cancer Care, and dog sledding in the Arctic in -31C for the Dogs Trust - not exactly A Place in the Sun!
