A gay couple in the UK has been banned from buying their £650,000 dream house by Christian sellers. Luke Whitehouse and his partner, Lachlan Mantell, who works as an ITV producer, received messages referencing Bible passages from the vendors and were told that the house would not be sold to “two men in partnership” after revealing that they were romantically involved.The couple originally spotted the three-bed, semi-detached cottage in Surrey as they looked to get on the property ladder having spent eight years in a relationship.

They attempted to organise a viewing through internet estate agents, Purplebricks, and were put into contact with the owners – builder Luke Main and Cambridge University medical physicist Dr Joanna Brunker.

Before agreeing to the house viewing, the devout Christian sellers asked Luke and Lachlan about their situation, and it was then revealed that they were a gay couple.
