Episode 1

In this new Channel 4 series, George Clarke shows that even the ugliest house can be transformed into a home to be proud of.  He has teamed up the owners of some of Britain’s most unloved houses with some of the UK’s leading architects. From a tired 1950s bungalow to a family house butchered by an 80s extension, each architect will use cutting edge design to breathe fresh life into some our ugliest ducklings and, with tight budgets, prove that great design doesn’t have to cost the earth.

Episode 2

Rachel and James bought their home nine years ago for £220,000 – but with two young sons, they’re fast out-growing the property and can’t afford to move.  What’s more, the classic 60s kitchen diner layout doesn’t work for family living and there’s no direct access from the hallway to the kitchen, meaning the living room has become a corridor.  The couple tried to rectify the situation by extending to the side of the house but this addition failed to alleviate any of their problems.

3) HERTFORDSHIRE

Sue and Simon believe that their home is the ugliest on their street. The couple bought the four-bedroom property in 2014 for £440,000 and, with Sue’s kids living with them, they thought it was the answer to all their problems.  But having been butchered in the 1980s by a bizarre faux Victorian extension tacked on the front, the property’s bad layout has proved a nightmare.
