The winner is the best establishment named best value for money.

The couple received 97 per cent of their staying costs, the highest on the series.

Each couple answers a review on the establishments hygiene, food quality, whether they had a good night's sleep and whether they would stay again.

The couple's family and friends gathered at the Crooked Billet pub in the village to watch tonight's show.

Mr Rogers said: "It was absolutely brilliant to be on the show and we had a fantastic time.

"Pretty much the whole village and all my friends in Burnley have been supporting me and it was great to see the show on the night.

"It was hard to not tell anyone the result, I couldn't tell anyone including close friends.

"We put a lot of hard work into the business and I was very pleased with how it went."

Mr Rogers, who has owned the Church Square business for around two-and-a-half years, used to work in the wholesale florist industry for 25 years.

The pair received full marks from one couple with the lowest being an eight out of 10 for both cleanliness and facilities after the guests meticulously searched the rooms.

Mr Rogers said: "It was extremely strange, you don't realise how much goes into filming each episode.

"You're up at 7am to get a microphone attached to your car, sometimes you have to film bits again and do multiple takes and it carries on until midnight, it's very intense.

""I decided to set up the guest house in Worsthorne as the village needed one.

"We get lots of guests who have come to visit family and friends in the village and have had no where else to stay.

"It was a great opportunity to go on as it is a great bit of advertising.

"People from all round the UK will see it."
