Season 4 / Episode 3 and airs on 29 October 2020 20:00
George Clarke presents a series which proves that even the ugliest houses can with help from some of the country's leading architects be transformed with next to no budget.
In Saffron Walden, among the handsome period properties, one place sticks out like a sore thumb. Lucas and Hayley's 1970s four-bedroom home is bland, boxy, and dominated by a dysfunctional double garage on the outside. On the inside, the home is stuck in a time warp, and some truly bonkers 80s additions have added insult to injury. To tackle this litany of problems and transform their place into a modern family home, George Clarke enlists the help of multi award-winning architect Chris Dyson. Will Hayley and Lucas be brave enough to step outside their comfort zone and take Chris's radical plans on board?
George revisits Nottingham's Park Estate to find out if midwife Mandy has managed to complete the transformation of her upside-down house. Previously, architects Howard and Pru reworked the ugly 1980s exterior, and the first floor living area became a stylish, contemporary family space. But has Mandy managed to make the ground floor as spectacular?
George meets Matt and Kevin, whose 1930s home stands out for all the wrong reasons. Sitting alongside the elegant Victorian and Edwardian properties in south-west London, this three-up, three-down is ugly from the outside and even worse on the inside, with dark, dated and badly designed spaces. Architects Katerina Dionysopoulou and Billy Mavropoulos are brought in to make most radical transformation on the programme to date - but will their wildly ambitious poured-concrete extension prove too innovative for the owners?
Greg and Helen Watson have bought a home in one of the most expensive areas of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, but it's too cramped for their needs and needs renovating. What's more, their third child is due in 18 weeks and they are desperate to move in before then. Architects Howard Evans and Prue Chiles are given the job, but with the Covid-19 lockdown, the wettest month on record and some major design differences, the build is in danger of collapsing before their £120,000 budget runs out.
