DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles is fronting a new series on Channel 5 tackling clutter in the nation's homes. Nick Knowles' Big House Clearout will see families ditch half their belongings in return for a radical home makeover.
Premiering on Thursday 19th August, the series will see Nick rescue six families who are crushed by their clutter. While these homes look normal on the outside, they are swamped with clutter and paraphernalia inside – making these abodes unloved and undervalued.
Nick will offer each family he meets an incredible deal – ditch half their clutter in return for a life-changing home makeover.
Nick will help the families ditch a lifetime of junk, repurpose old items, and make some cash from unloved possessions.
Meanwhile, family homes will be stripped bare and reconstructed room by room by a team of experts, which includes designer Gordon Whistance, to reveal stunning family spaces, beautiful bedrooms and ingenious storage solutions.
In episode one, Nick visits a family of four in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, whose house is bursting at the seams with mountains of clutter. After 18 years of family life their once spacious home is now drowning, from craft supplies overtaking the living room to covered windowsills and hidden kitchen worktops.
Mum Vicky's love of crafting, which she adopted on recovering from life-changing surgery, has expanded to fill the entire family home, and it's got to the point that teenagers James and Jess are mortified to bring friends round. The family have fallen out of love with their home but it's Nick's job to help.
The family have to let go of over half their clutter and in return win an extraordinary makeover that will make for a happier home.
Nick Knowles' Big House Clearout airs at 8pm on Channel 5.
