Channel 4's Changing Rooms reboot has shared its first look at hosts Anna Richardson and original fan-favourite alumni Laurence Lleweyln-Bowen.

The new series - which is an updated version of the iconic '90s and '00s home-DIY show - also has a release date, returning to our small screens on Wednesday, 18 August at 8PM on Channel 4.

Naked Attraction presenter Anna takes over from Davina McCall, who had to step down due to schedule conflicts.

Interior designer Laurence will be joined by Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead of 2LG Studio. Completing the team is carpenter and joiner Tibby Singh.

The show will follow the original format by featuring two sets of homeowners from the same neighbourhood work against the clock to renovate a room in each other's houses.

Changing Rooms will be also be packed full of design and DIY hints and tips, teaching viewers how to be crafty on a budget by upscaling and adding sparkle to unloved or outdated corners of our homes.

Laurence said in a statement: "There's no room for beige in our homes and, just as it was in the 90s, Changing Rooms is once more the homestyle antidote to Britain’s blues (and greys and taupes, and even Magnolia).

"It's taken quite a lot of coaxing to get me under the Changing Rooms banner once more, but nothing like as much coaxing as it’s going to take for me to squeeze those leather trousers back on."

Jonny Rothery, commissioning editor for Channel 4, added: "With us all spending so long staring at our own four walls, there’s never been a better time to see the return of the nation's favourite interiors show. Let the house swapping begin!"

We can't wait!
