What to expect of the show

The official BBC synopsis reads: "Together they’ll makeover Britain’s cluttered homes by first stripping them bare, then laying all their possessions out in a giant warehouse resembling an art installation of their entire lives, before asking the families to let go of thousands of their possessions. Emotions will run high as the families must decide what to keep and what to let go of. The items that the families’ part with will be recycled, donated or sold."

Stacey and her team will declutter the homes of six families

"Once sorted, Stacey and her team will beautifully reorganise their home by cleaning, upcycling and putting systems in place for the possessions they decide to keep. Each of the team has their own unique cleaning quirks and tidying tips that viewers will be able to take away and implement in their own homes."

Talking about the show, Stacey said: "There’s always that one room or cupboard I can’t face sorting out at home, but once I’ve done it there’s nothing more satisfying. One cupboard at a time, we’ll be helping families declutter their homes and get organised in a way that works for them."

Who are the experts in Stacey's team?

Stacey is joined by organiser extraordinaire Dilly Carter, carpenter and upcycler Robert Bent, and cleaning fanatic Iwan Carrington. Read on to find out a little bit more about the experts.
