    Get Your House In Order

    I normally love this kind of thing but I'm having trouble warming to this one. It doesn't seem to have made up its mind what it wants to be and it's ended up like the love-child of How Clean Is Your House, Cash In The Attic and Changing Rooms.

    It also raises so many questions:

    Why only three rooms?

    Is the rest of the house floor to ceiling crap as well and why oh why don't we get to gawp at it if so?

    Why is it three grand to slap a couple of coats of Dead Elephant grey onto a wall and couldn't they find a designer without a whiny voice?

    Where does the unsold tut end up?

    Anyone else watching and wondering?!

    I've been watching, something doesn't quite ring true to me. This week they showed only rooms full of junk but her garden looked immaculate??? She had a 4/5? bed house, the three rooms downstairs were supposed to be permanently floor to ceiling with stuff but no mention of the rest of the house? She didn't seem too distressed about getting rid of all the stuff. It seemed a bit like they planted the few more valuable items to sell as well.

    Yeah - I agree. It all started off so well but I'm already irrritated a bit.

    The 'shouty emphasise every word' antiques dealer that always finds valuable gems amongst piles of carboard boxes/mountains of primark clothes.

    The designer is a bit of a one trick pony too; paint walls red/grey/bold colour, add a selection of quirky junk shop finds, an owl/butterfly and a union jack/funky cushion. Job done.

    I'd be gutted if I'd sold everything in my home for 2K and ended up with that

    That said, I still find myself watching it.

    C4 on Thursdays!

    I'm nodding along with the comment about people not being particularly distressed at getting rid of the gear. Case of hoarders lite after the very watchable hardcore crew who can't even part with bottles of pee.

    Also agreeing with what they're getting (or not!) for the dosh.

    Shocking rip-off

    I agree. And I hate Cash in the Attic (perhaps that's because all I have in my attic are the Christmas decorations and suitcases!).

    It's a very odd programme - I'd rather watch the US show Hoarders online, although I am still watching and recording GYHIO

    I think that's a new daytime show.

    This one's narrated by Jane Horrocks which is totally surreal if you're an Ab Fab aficionado.

    It really is a most outlandish hybrid
