Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer return to help more people make the decision to spruce up or sell.
Our homes are the most important investment we'll ever make but no one can predict what the future holds. As priorities change and our wallets show the strain, more of us are thinking differently about how and where we live, but that doesn't always mean we feel the same as our partners.
So, for those at stalemate over whether the right home for them is the one they're in, or just a move away, it's time for Kirstie and Phil to step in. In this episode, Kirstie and Phil help pest control experts Amy and Brian solve their predicament over their five-bed chalet bungalow in Newtownards, Northern Ireland.
After meeting on a cruise ship 10 years ago, Amy moved in with Brian and fell in love with their home, neighbours, location and garden. However, having now lived in the same house for 50 years, Brian's had enough. He's fed up with the lack of storage for all his hobbies, the compact kitchen and small garden.
Brian wants a change and yearns for a more spacious house in the countryside. Kirstie comes up with a plan to make their home feel like new for Brian, without spending more than they'll get back if they sell.
Whilst Phil heads out to find a future-proof home with accessible ground floor accommodation to suit Brian's health needs, that's also rural enough for Brian's dream but close to work and amenities for Amy. It's a tall order but both Kirstie and Phil give it their best shot, so who will be buying the winner's drinks this time?
The next episode will be available as a first look box set on All 4 for free, following the transmission of this episode on Wednesday 4th January.
