Monday morning is Majorca morning on BBC1 with two hours of daytime television being dedicated to the island. Majorca will be sharing the billing with two other programmes filmed on the mainland but the big attraction of Majorca morning will be the sunshine launch of the new House and Gardens Invaders. To launch the new series, the two teams of House and Garden Invaders travelled to Majorca for a special one-hour fun in the sun first episode. The hugely popular series will be later followed by a special sunshine ending to Perfect Partner. Perfect Partner in Majorca, presented by Nadia Sawalha, sees her take off for the island for the final love match of the series. Sawalha helped ex-pat Nicole search for her ideal man among the holiday-makers - but her uncle reveals his plan to find her a serious boyfriend. Majorca morning closes with the start of the third series of Passport to the Sun, also presented by Nadia Sawalha. The highlight of the morning will be watching how the House and Garden Invaders managed to pull off their remarkable feats. Bulletin readers will have seen the before and after results and the happy British families, but on Monday, viewers will see how former pop-star Kim Wilde and her team managed to transform Carol and George Miller's concrete garden in to a Mediterranean jungle at their Arenal home. The House Invaders, led by interior designer Linda Barker and her team, were given the task of transforming three rooms at the home of Julie and Steve Morton in Costa de la Calma and all will be revealed in the programme. House and Garden Invaders pulls in record viewing figures for daytime television programmes and the first series of Passport to the Sun, averaged two million viewers per programme. They may not be blockbuster movies, promoting Majorca across the globe to millions of people, but, considering the local government gave none of the programmes any help, the fact that several million people in Britain will be tuned in to Majorca and its people for two hours on Monday is priceless promotion. The Passport to the Sun series will be running every morning for the next two months and Monday's episode feature Nadia Sawalha heading out to sea as she learns how to sail. As the series develops, local residents, holidaymakers and the odd member of the rich and famous and European royalty will be featured as the programme continues with its insight in to expatriate life in sunny Majorca.
