“We’ve never done this before but felt strongly enough to contact you,” they opened.

“Me and my husband have been watching Four in a Bed and would like to say that you’re a pair of fantastic sports and all round good people.”

“Both of you coped really well with the tension between two of the couples. You kept it real and were true to your beliefs,” they said.

The mail continued: “Unfortunately, you were surrounded by game players (apart from Mehfil Hotel owners).

“We wish you all good luck in the future and are pretty sure that you will continue to be happy and successful in your pub!”

This isn’t the only time John has been complimented for his appearance on the show.

“I’ve been phoned up from people around the world about Four In A Bed and people telling me how good that me and my sister came across,” he explained.

But when he explained why they finally relented to his terms.

“I said, ‘Well, on a Thursday night, it’s our bike night,’” John continued.

“’Our car park is full of motorbikes, and this is what we’re about.’”

He also offered to create an atmosphere for the show by arranging live music on the night. – ChatGPT autoblogging and content curation plugin for WordPress
