Davina McCall has reportedly been forced to step away from Changing Rooms due to other schedule commitments.
Changing Rooms sees two sets of homeowners from the same neighbourhood work against the clock to renovate a room in each other’s houses. They might not share the same tastes, but they are completely in charge of creating a new look for the chosen room – and anything goes.
An insider told The Sun: "Davina was so excited to be part of the reboot but with the changing production schedule, it has become a nightmare. Filming was supposed to take place at the end of last year but it got moved until earlier this year. And now it’s been pushed back again...
"The lockdown and pandemic have played havoc with the schedule and sadly Davina has said she won’t be able to commit. It’s the last thing anyone wanted but she is so busy with other filming commitments. Everyone on Changing Rooms is gutted as getting Davina on board was a huge coup for the reboot."
Speaking last year about her new gig, Davina said: “I’m so excited to be presenting Changing Rooms. It’s a classic! It’s the perfect time to bring it back, everyone is going DIY and decor mad! I can’t wait to see all the amazing transformations - I might even get stuck in myself if I’m allowed to be let loose with a paint brush!”
