Jordan and Russell are known for founding interior design company, 2LG, while Tibby won BBC's Carpenter of the Year in 2012.

Channel 4's synopsis for the reboot reads: "Changing Rooms with Dulux is a six-part series which sees two sets of homeowners from the same neighbourhood work against the clock to renovate a room in each other's houses.

"They'll work with Laurence or Jordan and Russell to bring the new looks to life in the chosen rooms, with the designers' bold and opposing styles ensuring each transformation will be spectacular, innovative and unexpected." The new episodes also promise some "shocked and emotional reactions to the big reveals."

Are you excited for the reboot?

The original show featured Carol Smiley and Laurence fronting the show. Last year, it was announced that Laurence and Davina McCall were going to host the programme's comeback after 16 years, however, Davina had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.

She told The Sun: "Changing Rooms changed times when they were filming, sadly, because of Covid as they were going into people's houses. They had to change it three times. And I could do the first two times that they changed it, but I had stuff on this third time so that was really depressing."

Changing Rooms starts Wednesday 18 August at 8pm on Channel 4.
