Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer are back with a brand-new series, featuring all-new house-hunters pitted against an ever-changing market.
There may be real concerns over the cost of living, but that hasn't diminished people's desire for a place to call their own. In this episode, Kirstie and Phil are on the Kent coast - Phil's home turf. Phil's with Ellen, who is moving out from her mum and dad's in Hertfordshire and wants to live amid Margate's vibrant LGBTQ+ community.
Twenty-something Ellen tells Phil that she 'grew up' with the show, so she thinks she can count on him to sort out her search. The pressure is on for Phil, particularly when Ellen tells him her mum will hate him after he finds her a fabulous one-bed flat without the spare bedroom for her parents to visit!
In the hope of family harmony, Phil finds Ellen two and even three-bedroom homes, each of which has its charms. But no matter how good the homes, when it comes to making an offer, it becomes clear that nothing is going to be straightforward.
Meanwhile, Kirstie's with Sophie, Matt and baby Tate, who need to get out of Sophie's mum's and find their own family home in Broadstairs. The couple have viewed over 100 houses and have seen Broadstairs' prices soar in the time they've been searching.
Finding them the perfect property at a comfortable price proves problematic, even for Kirstie. As she says, prices could fall in the future, and that's a concern clearly playing on her couple's minds as they contemplate the biggest purchase of their lives.
In the end, Kirstie is able to show them the right house, but it all comes down to whether Sophie and Matt think the price is right too.
