Next Episode of DIY SOS is
Nick Knowles and the team issue a call to arms and recruit friends, family and local trades to help transform the homes of families across Britain.
Nick Knowles, Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen and hundreds of volunteer builders help a 17-year-old girl whose Ehlers-Danlos syndrome has left her trapped in hospital.
When 36-year-old Terry Guest, father of two daughters, had a catastrophic brain injury, he was left with severe disabilities. As his house was unsuitable for him, the only care available was an old-people's dementia care home, where he remained for several years. In need of more day-to-day care and a place of his own, his sister Tracey stepped in to offer help, but her house was also unsuitable. Now DIY SOS and their team of generous South Yorkshire volunteers and suppliers are stepping in to adapt Tracey's home and also, in a DIY SOS first, build Terry his very own separate pad at the end of the garden. Battling adverse Yorkshire weather, the team's electrician Billy's tricks with the electrics and a massive misjudgement in ordering materials, this unique build definitely tests the team's resolve.
Nick Knowles, Laurence Llewelyn Bowen and hundreds of Warwickshire volunteer builders help Chloe, whose cramped family living room has been her prison for the last two years. When Chloe was 18 years old, doctors diagnosed her with mastocytosis, a rare genetic disorder. As a result, Chloe now requires constant access to oxygen, must be fed through a tube in her chest and is prone to seizures that cause her joints to dislocate and stop her breathing. Chloe currently lives with her mum Susie, stepdad Phil and stepbrother Josh, but the current design of this tired house means her future in the family home is not guaranteed. So to improve Chloe's life and future-proof her care and accommodation, the DIY SOS team redesign the entire house to provide Chloe with independence, thanks to her own self-contained apartment, complete with bedroom, wet room and sitting room. As ever, it's a challenging but fun build, with mismeasurements aplenty and a barrister volunteering as a barista.
Nick Knowles and the team help to transform a family's home. In Monmouthshire, Nick and the team help Charlotte, who's fighting to recover from a stroke she had giving birth to her twin boys Teddy and Fox. Charlotte's stroke left her with brain damage, speech loss and partial paralysis but finally after months of intensive rehab, she is back home with husband Rob and the boys. Physically, she is slowly teaching herself to walk and battling hard to regain her speech. Her other battle is with the design of the house, as the cramped, cluttered rooms are unsafe for Charlotte to move around and there's nowhere for her to do her physio, hampering her recovery. That's where DIY SOS step in. Building a home will bring this fractured family together and help Charlotte get better, but it's going to take an army of volunteers and as ever they've got just nine highly-stressed days.
