Terrible programme. What was he doing? Secret agent bit just jumping out at people. Weird.

I watched it.

These couple splitting up; the house was a mess because he was behind the stupid decisions like a patio door for the front door, the excessive wardrobes in the bedroom etc. He seemed very intractable, I felt sorry for his wife. The sitting room was revolting, the shiny blue green wallpaper, the glass bricks, horrible sofas! The rest wasn't much better, the horrible fireplace and endless nasty, tacky ornaments.

The younger couple confused me slightly. I get that they didn't have money to replace the horrific carpets but their choice of paint colours was baffling; red satin sheen in the hall and dark purple in the bathroom!

I enjoyed it.

Scarletforya do you have a Dublin connection? Is that a Dublin saying?
I agree with your comments.
All those home make over shows on tv must never have been watched by those house sellers.
Sarah Beeney has been wasting her time smile

I love this programme. Good to see it back smile have seen all repeats so wanted new houses to watch

Tho never understand anyone who says who doesn't want to make changes to their home - coz they aren't going to live there anymore so why do they get upset repaintimg /de cluttering etc

They can move their crap to new home and paint walls hideous colours again etc

What amazes me is that surely everyone knows to sell a house you need it clean and tidy and not full of crap and hideous carpets and bright walls so why are they so amazed they need to do it

Saying all that I think phil is lovely so will watch anything he is in smile

I love this programme but it does annoy me. House selling programmes have been around for decades. Anyone remember House Doctor. Why do these people think that clutter and horrible patterned carpets sell houses?

Phil Spector? Is there two of them? I can only think of the 60s music mogul now jailed for murder.

I hate the "surprise" jumping out from behind a car. Do they not notice the camera crew filming them from 3 feet away? hmm

Apart from that i like the show. I live all those house decor shows. Except kirsty. Could see her far enough.
