Lee is a property developer and has worked all over the world, creating beautiful homes and places for his clients.
He grew up in Windsor and between the age of seven and 10, he spent a few years living in Mauritius where his parents are from.
He has a specific passion for interiors, telling RadioTimes.com ahead of his debut on A Place in the Sun: "I love property, I love interiors and it’s something that I’ve kind of taught myself in the last 10 years. So, being able to help other people on the show is great.”
Although he works in property now, Lee has a background in the music industry, where he started off as runner before working his way up to management.

Throughout his career, he has worked with the likes of Lulu, Billy Ocean and Take That.
Lee also has an interest in fashion and is launching his own brand in the summer.

Lee is looking forward to joining the Channel 4 show and meeting his co-presenters, who he hasn't had a chance to get to know properly due to restrictions caused by the pandemic.

However, they have been in touch via zoom, with Scarlette in particular reaching out to the new host.

"It's been really hard because none of us have met person especially the presenters. When I went away and filmed in November, it was great with the production team. But the other presenters, we only know each other virtually or we've had a couple of zooms. Scarlette is great. She kind of reached out to me when I first got the show and was just very encouraging. They've all been amazing. All the presenters have been very welcoming. So we hope maybe in the summer, we can all meet up at some point."

A Place in the Sun returns on Monday, 26th April at 3pm on Channel 4. To find out what else is on TV, check out our TV Guide or visit our hub for more Entertainment news.
