TEN has confirmed renovation show Changing Rooms for 2019.
The UK format, which ran for 17 seasons, ran in Australia for 8 seasons for Nine, hosted by Suzie Wilks.
As indicated by a previous casting announcement, the format sees Sydney-based couples swap houses with their family, friends or neighbours. Each pair decorate several key rooms in each other’s homes, guided by designers before a final reveal.
“Our new show will capture the essence and appeal of the original format and re-energise it, with strong storylines and more kitchen and bathroom reveals, which are proven favourites with Australian viewers” Network TEN Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey said.
“Created by the people behind such proven hits as MasterChef Australia and Australian Survivor, the new Changing Rooms will be fun, bright, energetic and great family viewing.
“Changing Rooms proved that renovation could be more than informative: it could also be full of fun, big characters and tension. We cannot wait to bring our exciting new version to viewers.”
Endemol Shine Australia CEO, Mark Fennessy said: “It’s the series that changed the nation’s living rooms and brought in a new era of DIY. Changing Rooms – it’s great to have you back!”
Filming will take place in Sydney from late October to mid December.
A host will be announced soon.
