Our new online TV show for home improvers is set to go live next month.
The Real Homes Show’s first season will broadcast fortnightly from April 4 in partnership with Checkatrade, the leading tradesperson-finding service.
It will be presented by homes expert and former Real Homes magazine editor, Laura Crombie. Regular features will include advice on extending and renovating, decorating with colour and finding tradespeople, plus tours of the homes of leading Instagram influencers and money-saving tips.
Guest presenters will include homebuilding and renovating specialist Jason Orme, design and build expert Sian Astley from the BBC’s Getting the Builders In, and Style Editor Anna Morley. Instagram stars Lisa Dawson and Amy Wilson are among the influencers appearing in season one.
Brand director Paul Newman said: 'Real Homes is the most exciting media brand in the homes sector today. Pairing a new video-based product with the UK’s fastest-growing homes website gives us new ways to engage with our audience.'
Linda Hardy, Chief Operating Officer at Checkatrade, added: 'We're delighted to be sponsoring the Real Homes Show because it’s the right fit for our customers. The Show offers great, impartial, practical advice to people looking to transform their homes, and we have over 34,000 checked, vetted and recommended members ready to support these projects.'
The announcement comes shortly after Real Homes magazine celebrated a circulation increase, and Realhomes.com became one of the UK's fastest-growing websites.
