Can you sign up for Ugly House to Lovely House on Channel 4?

No. Channel 4 is not currently casting for Ugly House to Lovely House.

However, the channel is asking people to take part in two other renovation shows, including George Clarke’s Project Home and George Clarke’s Old House, New Home.

For Project Home, they are looking for ‘Change of Use’ projects as they plan to turn old commercial and industrial buildings – that were not previously intended to be lived in – into extraordinary homes.

If you own, or have a client who owns a Change of Use project, then you can visit Amazing Productions to fill out the form provided. Then send it to [email protected] or call 0207 819 0500.

For Old House, New Home, Channel 4 is looking for period properties – such as Victorian terraces to medieval farmhouses – that people are planning to renovate in 2020.

What to expect on the Channel 4 renovation show

In the first episode, we were greeted by property owners Fiona and Hugh, who hated absolutely everything about their home in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire, except for the garden.

They were won over by architect Greg Blee’s modernist designs, but local planners weren’t.

In episode 2, Matt and Kevin’s dark and dated, 1930s three-up-three-down home in Streatham, London, is showcased on the show.

The home, which is not hard to miss, is completely turned around by the architects.
