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 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.
On the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, Garry and Kyle first fostered then adopted four vulnerable children because they wanted to give them the best life possible. Unfortunately their tired, crammed three-bed bungalow now threatens their family's future. Nick Knowles and the team take on a DIY SOS first - and one of their most ambitious home builds ever. The team are going to demolish the bungalow and in just nine days build an entirely new bespoke five-bedroom home for this inspiring family.
Kidney failure has meant that midwife Sascha has to endure intensive dialysis at hospital just to stay alive. This intense dialysis for hours on end, five days a week, places her body under immense stress with the constant threat of life-risking blood clots. If this continues, Sascha, a mother to four children, has a life expectancy of just a few years. However, Sascha could do self-dialysis daily from her home, and the increase in frequency and the decrease in intensity would mean her life expectancy and lifestyle would improve dramatically. So that is where DIY SOS and the generous volunteers and trades of Billy's home turf, Welwyn Garden City, step up to help one of their own. In an emotionally charged episode, Sascha's family home is completely renovated and extended to include a dedicated home-dialysis room for Sascha, which offers her a lifeline and extra years with her loving family.
In Shropshire, three amazing school children and an energetic head teacher inspire the DIY SOS team and hundreds of volunteers to help 12-year-old Matthew return home from hospital for the first time in three years, after suffering cancer and a stroke. Matthew has yearned to return home, but as his house is completely unsuitable for his complex medical needs and equipment, he is stuck in hospital. His schoolmates fundraised wherever they could and campaigned to get Matthew home. Now the DIY SOS team join their crusade. With a Doctor Who-inspired interior design, enormous community spirit and the power of friendship, this is a DIY SOS Big Build to inspire.
