Channel 4 is to screen a four part series of Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners featuring stately properties.
Following its usual format, the factual series will see individuals who cannot refrain from cleaning paired up with someone whose living space could markedly benefit from a good spring clean.
“All of our Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners are amazing and have already overcome huge fears that they never thought they would. To see them take on these even bigger cleans and challenges in this new series, shows what heroes they really are.” – Commissioning Editor, Channel 4 Features, Kate Teckman.
Often, a vast ancestral hoard of clutter going back several generations and prone to gathering dust features prominently in these stately country properties. Whole areas are uninhabitable and the owners find it impossible to get rid of treasured possessions. Over the course of one week the obsessive workers will work with the homeowners in restoring their home to its former glory. The series explores how the cleaners adapt to being in a neglected environment as their own homes are so spotless.
“The dream of living in a grand country house appeals to millions of people but the reality of maintaining these homes can be a huge burden for those who actually live in them. In this new series a group of obsessive cleaners try to bring order to the chaos and transform tired stately homes back to their former glory.” – Executive Producer, Eve Kay
Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners: Country House Specials (provisional title) will be produced by betty.
