A Place In The Sun presenter Jasmine Harman has previously spoken openly about her mum Vasoulla Harman’s “chronic hoarding” problems. The Channel 4 presenter bravely detailed the experience in a candid BBC One documentary titled My Hoarder Mum and Me, which aired over a decade ago.

The 45-year-old has since taken the opportunity to update viewers on her mother’s progress as the property expert confessed it still is a “massive struggle”.

It comes after Jasmine, who is also the founder of Help4Hoarders, launched a new website to assist people and their families who struggle with the condition.

The small-screen star has taken to Instagram and shared a touching tribute to her loved one via her stories.

In view of her 74,900 followers, Jasmine shared a photo of the duo with the caption: “Love you mum”.

The Channel 4 presenter also shared an update on her mum’s condition and admitted she is “proud” of how far Vasoulla has come on her journey.

Jasmine wrote: “Mum is doing well. It is still a massive struggle to overcome the hoarding, but she is working on it and has so much more insight. I’m so proud of her.”

The Help4Hoarders Instagram account also penned a thoughtful message as they thanked people for their messages of support the presenter has received.

They penned: “This time last week, we launched our new website and founder, Jasmine Harman, shared the story behind how Help for Hoarders began following the @bbc documentary My Hoarder Mum and Me, which first aired over a decade ago.

“The response received was overwhelming and Jasmine wanted to thank everybody for their kind messages.”

Jasmine has previously admitted she was “ashamed” of how her family lived, feelings that were triggered by her mum’s “hoarding issues”.

The TV star revealed that she could no longer consider her home a “sanctuary” and would often make excuses so friends or boyfriends would never come round, keeping her home life a secret.

“Throughout my teens however, it was no longer that sanctuary that your home should be because the house becomes very full with ‘stuff’ due to mum’s hoarding issues,” Jasmine confessed.

She continued to tell Wigwam Magazine: “In my early twenties I was still living at home, but I began to feel ashamed of where and how we lived.

“I kept it a secret by never letting friends come round, never letting a boyfriend visit, and I noticed that everybody I knew lived differently to us.”

Jasmine’s own experience has led to her investigating how it can affect people’s lives and relationships with family and friends, presenting an episode of Biggest Hoarders in 2018, where she met like-minded people to that of her mum.

Back in 2011, the property expert fronted the documentary My Hoarder Mum and Me where she went on an emotional journey as she attempted to help her mother who was an extreme hoarder, declutter more than 30 years of her life.

Elsewhere, Jasmine recently reunited with her A Place In The Sun colleague and friend Laura Hamilton as lockdown restrictions begin to ease across England.

Taking to the picture-sharing site, Laura shared a snap of the duo in the park, albeit social-distancing.

She captioned the post: “When you bump into this lovely lady @jasmineharman.”

A Place In The Sun airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3pm.
