A Channel Four television show has delivered a secret makeover in a community champion’s home in the north west of England.

‘You Deserve This House’, fronted by Amanda Lamb, persuaded Janet Colley to leave her house by sending her on a spa day; when she came back, the 55-year-old found her property had been transformed.

Ms Colley, who was given the treat due to her efforts in her local community, said she did not suspect a thing. As well as new furniture and a revamped lounge, the conservatory was given a makeover, making it a “chill-out” room rather than a toy room. She could add conservatory blinds in future if she decides to carry out further work.

She remarked: “It is much more chilled now. I am nervous about it being on TV as I was really shocked and had absolutely no idea what had been going on, plus seeing the house as it was will probably be a shock but it will be good to see how it all happened.”

In an interview with thesun.co.uk, presenter Lamb described how it has been a “humbling experience” working on the television series and she has been moved to tears at times. ‘You Deserve This House’ is in its second series and sees community members – along with professional designers – given 48 hours to transform deserving people’s properties.
