Hoteliers of Britain beware - Alex Polizzi is back! The Hotel Inspector will return to Channel 5 this summer.

The ninth series of the show will see Alex back on her quest to transform some of Britain’s most desperate hotels and B&Bs into successful business concerns.

From a naturist hotel in a residential suburb of Birmingham, to a grand hotel in Eastbourne run by a flamboyant real-life Sheikh and a 600 year-old Inn in St Albans supposedly haunted by a Tudor ghost, Alex is faced with some of her biggest challenges yet.

Along the way, The Hotel Inspector encounters eye-popping décor, questionable cleanliness and families fighting amongst themselves. She’s also tasked with turning round the fortunes of a hotel described by one reviewer as "The Fawlty Towers of Essex".

Alex will also revisit two hotels from previous series - the African Queen, a floating canal boat on the Thames, and the Walpole Bay in Margate, to see whether her words have been turned into profits.

Confirming the news, Alex said: "I am delighted to be returning as the Hotel Inspector for this new series. As ever, I promise to expose the real problems within the hotel industry and possibly a little more besides. Maybe viewers will get the chance to see my cheeky side too." We can't wait!
