IF you fancy escaping to the country then look no further than Whitby.
Well, that’s what one couple did who were being filmed for the BBC2 series ‘Escape to the Country’ this week.
Cross Butts provided a base for the tv presenter Nicki Chapman, the film crew and the couple who were looking for a plush new pad in the local area - although it isn’t known which properties they were viewing.
Nicki Chapman, also from Pop Idol has been seen in and around town and also used the new facilities at Whitby Leisure Centre’s gym and said they were better than the gym she uses in London.
Cheryl Morley from Cross Butts told the Gazette: “They contacted us a couple of weeks ago when they decided where they were filming.
“We were like a base and they would go off, see homes and at the end she asked did you like this and that.
“That is what they were filming yesterday morning.”
