MANAGER Mark Jenkins finally decides to sell The Grosvenor in the latest episode of the Channel 4 hit TV show The Hotel.
The show, based on the Grosvenor Hotel in Torquay, is a rating hit for Channel 4 and has made stars of its main characters.
In Episode Seven Marks debts are now so high that he has no choice but to let the hotel go. He's dreading telling the staff.
The guests, like the staff, are unaware that these are the last days of The Grosvenor in its current guise.
He says he is on the brink of losing everything he has ever worked for. Preparing to break the news to staff, he said: "I'm homeless, penniless and bankrupt, but the staff are fine.
"I have never become attached in the same way to something that has failed so spectacularly."
Radio One DJ Scott Mills Tweeted during the programme: "Getting quite upset watching Channel 4 The Hotel. I had a great birthday weekend there;)"
Meanwhile, front of house, The Grosvenor is as 'fawlty' as ever.
Mark tries to keep a smile on everyone's faces by entering Team Grosvenor in a rowing race.
The Rocky theme rings out through reception as the team gathers...and the race is a thriller!
