LeAnn turned to the Property Brothers for help in surprising her friend Roger, who has been there for her through low times.

Wanting to show her “dear friend and lifesaver” how much he is loved, she got stuck into the work by physically helping with the reno work herself.

Longtime friend Roger was in shock when LeAnn showed him the big reveal, having demolished a freestanding wall in the process.

LeAnn, who refers to Roger as her “second dad”, said:

Roger is the one who saw right through what was going on in my life. He knew I was just kind of ready to seek help.

She added that starting her music career at a young age led to “so much anxiety and depression”. Continuing, LeAnn revealed:

I wanted to do something special for you because you’ve helped me so much in my life. Eight years ago, when I was probably at the lowest point of my life, you basically saved my life. I love you so much.
