George Clarke is back with a brand new TV series, George Clarke's Remarkable Renovations, which follows brave homeowners as they reinvent buildings as unique and extraordinary homes.

'It's taken nearly 4 years to make so I hope everyone enjoys it!,' said architect, designer and TV presenter George, as he shared the announcement about his new series on social media.

What is George Clarke’s Remarkable Renovations about?

Across Britain, over 600,000 buildings lie unused and unloved, and nearly a third of them are commercial. With the high street changing, shops, post offices, pubs and banks are closing down daily, and an alternative way to breathe life back into these local landmarks is to make them homes for the future, reducing the risk of them being demolished or snapped up by big developers.

Recent relaxations in planning laws have made it easier to repurpose commercial and agricultural buildings for domestic use, and transform them into family homes which celebrate their past.

George will meet the brave homeowners taking on these ambitious projects, as they aim to preserve the country's architecture by breathing new life into it.

What happens in episode one?

George meets Cornwall couple Richard and Sarah, who used their local high street bank, Lloyds Bank, for 20 years before it shut. The Victorian Grade II listed building was boarded up and put in for auction. But, seeing the potential to turn it into a unique family home, the couple offered a sealed bid of £50,000 – and they were gobsmacked when they won it. But after paying such a small sum, how much will the conversion total up to?

George Clarke's Remarkable Renovations airs on Wednesday 21st July at 9pm on Channel 4
