Money for Nothing is back for a new series this year, bringing us more interesting renovation projects across the UK.
On the BBC series, presenter Sarah Moore rescues old items and furniture. Using the help of antique designers, Sarah recovers the items to sell them and give the profit to those who threw them in the first place.
One of the restorators featured in this year’s series is Peter Fournel.
So, here’s everything you need to know about Peter, including his business and social media accounts!
