Channel 4 has commissioned a new property programme to air in new daytime schedule.

Amanda Lamb will front You Deserve This House which will feature a deserving person or couple who will be whisked away for the weekend, while a makeover team – including people the homeowner has helped over the years – will have just 48 hours to transform their house.

The new programme will begin airing in March weekdays at 11am on Channel 4 and will then be screened on digital channel Home later in the year. This follows a deal agreed between UKTV which owns the Home channel and 4Rights.

Channel 4 commissioned Crackit Productions, the company behind Fat Fighters, to produce an initial 40 episodes. Creative Director at Crackit, Elaine Hackett said: ¬†“It’s a humbling experience to see people turn out in all conditions, to work on homes in the pouring rain and bitter cold, to help surprise someone who has selflessly made a huge difference to their life. Those we’re surprising do so much for others. They don’t expect thanks or payment. They really are Britain’s silent heroes.”
