BBC Studios, the makers of BBC’s ‘The One Show, ‘DIY SOS’ and ‘The Antiques Roadshow’, are currently producing a brand-new show and are looking for people who are keen to make their home more user-friendly so that it works better for them.

It comes after many people had to spend much more time in their homes, due to the coronavirus pandemic, as people were asked to work from home and homeschool their children.

This led to many realising their home no longer functioned in a way they needed it too.

The producers said: "Is your living space in need of a radical revamp?

"Perhaps you’re a couple who are in need of a practical work from home solution or a family desperate to create an entertaining playroom for the kids?

"If you’re stuck in a home which fails to function well for the whole family, our team can help.

"We’re looking for households across the UK who are keen to learn how to get the best out of their homes, so that it functions well for them."
