The house will then be made over, giving the families more space for features such as home offices or cinema rooms.

Knowles said C5 has been “making such good shows currently” that it is “a no brainer to join in” .

A spokesman said: “We are looking for families who need a declutter, maybe someone who has a lifetime of possessions and doesn’t know where to start. We will send Nick and a wonderful team who will transform two rooms, redecorate, declutter and hopefully help the family fall back in love with their home. We’ll find lovely possessions they’ve forgotten they owned and bring them back to life.

“We are very keen to hear from people in the area.”
