Brad Pitt has signed up for a new home improvement series where he will gift a house renovation to someone who has had a major impact on his life. The Oscar-winning actor is confirmed to star on Celebrity IOU, a new TV series hosted by Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star is one of a number of famous faces set to take part in the show; Michael Buble, Rebel Wilson, Viola Davis and Melissa McCarthy have also signed up with the promise of sharing a very special thank you gift with their mentors, friends and family members.

The show will air on HGTV in May, and we can't wait to see what Brad has designed. Like his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, the 56-year-old has a passion for home renovation, and the pair previously transformed their Beverly Hills home by installing a home cinema and pub, with the property currently on the market for a jaw-dropping £34million.
