Host Andy said: “Brits are taking on more adventurous projects right now.

"With many people home working, we’ll even be taking on a container conversion into a garden hideaway, coming soon to the channel.”

He added: “The trend for home renovations shows no sign of stopping, with research showing how over half of Brits (51 per cent) find DIY therapeutic during difficult times.

"Our camper van renovation has been viewed hundreds of times already, as so many viewers dream of the freedom of owning their own right now.

“Our homes are doubling up as our office and safe haven, as well as a place for creative projects.

"Lockdowns inspired us again to DIY, with many of us finally getting around to fixing ‘those jobs' that have needed doing for years.

“The UK DIY market is worth billions and it’s growing as we’re all at home more now.

"We wanted to create a channel with easy how to’s as well as more challenging projects using recycled materials you might have at home.”

Renovate Innovate will publish regular news and how to videos on the latest tools and products, as well as expert guidance.
