Jon Knight is fronting Farmhouse Fixer, which sees him transform the spaces into dream places. So, who is he? Where else have we seen him?
For its first ever episode, Jon will show us how he preserves the history of a 280-year-old farmhouse, to modernise the space for current living.
The new HGTV series sees farmhouses go from unliveable to almost unrecognisable, as a result of expert renovations.
With the help of Kristina Crestin, Jon is seen getting down to business on the new renovation series. So, let’s get to know the Farmhouse Fixer host.
Who is Jon Knight?
