Jonnie Irwin

Property and Business expert Jonnie Irwin, now presents BBC1 consumer show ‘Cowboy Trap’ which hit screens in May 2013.

Jonnie continues to present BBC’s ‘Escape to the Country’.

You can catch his other shows ‘A Place in the Sun, Home or Away’, ‘Renovation Game’, and ‘Winter Sun’s’ on Channel 4.

Displaying his infectious enthusiasm and knowledge, former surveyor and business transfer consultant Jonnie first appeared on our screens presenting the hugely successful and award wining ‘A Place in the Sun’ and ‘Home or Away’, which continues to thrive on Channel 4.

Jonnie’s hard work and personable delivery has made him a sought after face now regularly presenting BBC show ‘Escape to the Country’, and previously ‘To Buy or Not To Buy’ and ‘Wreck or Ready’ which was a ratings winner.

During 2012, Jonnie was busy filming two series of ‘Renovation Game’ for Channel 4, another season of ‘Escape to the Country’, ‘A Place in the Sun’, ‘Home or away’, and ‘Winter Sun’s’.

In 2011, Jonnie was the property advisor on the ‘Dispatches Live’ debate asking whether Britain should sell off its assets to cut the national debt. He also shot the series ‘Make My Home Bigger’ for UKTV, which was their highest rated show of 2011.

Jonnie writes a monthly column for ‘A Place in the Sun’ magazine. He also hosts the ‘A Place in the Sun’ live exhibitions around the country and regularly presents seminars and corporate events. However, Jonnie isn’t only enthused by business and property, his passion for sport is second to none being a keen cricketer, snowboarder, mountain biker, and runner.

Before his foray into presenting began, Jonnie worked for business transfer specialists Christie & Co, becoming associate director within three years. He then went on to work for Colliers International.

Over the last 10 years, Jonnie has advised on a huge range of businesses and properties from small high street gift shops to multi-million pound corporate hotel packages. Yet despite his success as a presenter, he hasn’t completely abandoned his previous career and still runs a bespoke property and business consultancy.
