Gogglebox stars Dom and Steph Parker have been forced to slash their asking price of £5million from their mega mansion.
The couple – who shot to fame on the popular Channel 4 show back in 2013 – put their pad on the market earlier this year after it went belly-up as a hotel.
The posh hotel crashed with debts of almost £2million with 33 workers sent home unemployed.
There have been no takers willing to part with the £5million asking price so they’ve had to knocked off £250,000 – the equivalent price of a decent family home.
The couple, who have been married for over two decades and share two kids together, bought the stunning Grade I listed building in Sandwich, Kent, 17 years ago for £2.6million.

And accountants have revealed they have been able to raise just £26,405 from the hotel business to help pay creditors.
The couple's hotel, The Salvation , shut its doors in January last year with dozens of workers sent home after it crashed with debts of £1.8million.

A report by a firm of liquidators recently sent to Companies House revealed the hotel’s catering equipment, furniture company vehicles and stock has all been sold.
The document said £600 was raised from the sale of pot plants and £12,961 from the sale of furniture.
But much of the £26,405 raised will be swallowed up by accountant fees.

The place was later leased to John and Dorothy Fothergill by the Parkers but they couldn’t make it pay as a hotel.
Dom, 57, said of the closure last year: "We are sorry to confirm that The Salutation Hotel Ltd, which has been managing The Salutation, has indeed become insolvent.
"We are in discussions with other interested parties and we aim to have the hotel back up and running very soon, under new management.''

But the couple later decided to put the property up for sale.
Its famous restaurant was run by Michelin-starred chef Shane Hughes while the gardening team won gold at the 2016 Chelsea Flower Show.
Many guests booked in just so they could be close to booze-loving Dom and Steph – and the couple often stayed up all night drinking with customers when they were at the helm.
