Entered into: Best Host of a Television Format 2022

Produced by: Optomen

This new series will see Stacey Solomon and her team - organizer Dilly, carpenter Rob and cleaner Iwan - challenge six families to sort their lives out in 7 days, by letting go of half their possessions. The team will then reorganise each home with a budget friendly makeover and upcycling what they already have.
With Stacey’s help, every single item is stripped from each family home, revealing how much space there is under all their things, allowing us to get to know the personalities behind the clutter: single parent Steph and her three daughters; craft loving Sue whose 30 year hobby has taken over the house, and Mum Kirsty, whose mobility issues mean the clutter has become dangerous.
Filmed across the UK, each episode is the story of one unique family. Once each home is packed up, the family’s possessions are laid out in a warehouse like an art installation of their entire lives. With everything displayed in front of them the family discover how much they really own.
All the items are laid out in defined categories to help them to see how many repeat items they have, so they can quickly decide what to keep and what to put into piles to donate, recycle or sell.
There are emotional moments as the family go through their most treasured items and make difficult decisions about what to let go of from their past and present.
Meanwhile Stacey’s team are hard at work back in the family’s home. Carpenter Rob breathes new life into tired rooms with clever storage solutions including hidden bathroom cupboards, under stairs drawers and foldaway furniture. Cleaner Iwan gives each house a spring clean, with lots of useful eco-friendly tips, and organizer Dilly sorts out kitchen cupboards and wardrobes with space-saving hacks designed for the particular needs of the family.
When each family is left with only the must-keep items, key sentimental pieces are upcycled before the home is stylishly re-decorated and re-purposed by Stacey and her team, ready for the reveals.
