PREVIEW: This Is MY House, BBC One
Stacey Dooley hosts this brand new, prime-time series in which four people all claim to own the same house and be the same person. The catch: only one of them is telling the truth - the other three are actors.
The celebrity panel - Bill Bailey, Emily Atack, Judi Love, Jamali Maddix and guest panelist Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen - must correctly pick the true homeowner. If they get it right the homeowner wins a cash prize, get it wrong and the homeowner wins nothing.
In this episode we meet four 'Fern Maxted’s' including an LA society girl who bought her Ashford home on the internet and is disappointed the area is less chocolate box more “glorified car park”; mum-of-three Fern, who has a moral meltdown when someone pulls out a saucy bottle opener from her draws; a former PR man who claims Fern is short for Fernando and Fern’s partner Mark is actually his guy; finally a Fern who is so adamant that she is the real homeowner that she is prepared to lick the furniture to prove it.
It’s down the celebrity panel to work out which of these claims rings alarm bells, and which has the ring of truth.
