George Clarke helps people make their period homes fit for modern life.
This brand-new series kicks off with Pip, in West Yorkshire, who is moving back into the home that she grew up in, which was last decorated by her parents in the 1960s. Doing the house justice and creating something that both her parents would have been proud of is making it nigh on impossible to make any decisions. Pip must paint over her childhood wallpaper, rip up the swirly carpets and replace the kitchen that her father hand built.
Can George provide emotional support and steer her in the right direction? Also, there’s a mystery in a west London three-bed Victorian terrace. What lies hidden behind a wall of awful 80s cork tiles? George tools up to uncover a piece of home history.
George Clarke’s Old House, New Home – Wednesday at 8.00pm on Channel 4.
