The show sees four people all claim to be the same person and all own the same house. The catch - three of them are actors. At stake is a cash prize, and all the real homeowner has to do to win is tell the truth.
This is MY House starts on Wednesday 24 March at 9pm on BBC One and will also be available on BBC iPlayer.

Tell us about your role on the show.
I am part of the team that tries to figure out the true owner of the house.
What made you want to be a part of the show?
I liked the idea, I think it’s a very entertaining premise. Particularly over lockdown, when the many video calls have shown us all how curious we are about the lives of others , and how the backgrounds of video calls have generated as much interest as the calls themselves. This show is quite fascinating as it’s not just about people’s houses, but it also gives us a glimpse into other people’s lives.
Who had the best eye for honesty on the panel?
I think everyone displayed good intuition, especially Jamali who seemed to have a good instinct for investigating.
What were you looking for when trying to identify the real homeowner?
I think it’s the little details which give them away.
Were there any surprises or shocking moments during filming?
Quite a few. It’s a lot harder than you think to identify the real owners and we were caught out a few times.
What have you learnt about your fellow panellists?
I think it was surprising how much of all of our own life experiences were brought to bear for this show.
Was there any competition between the panel?
We’re all quite competitive and as you’ll see, the show is quite intriguing and you quickly find yourself drawn into it.
