Davina McCall is set to host Channel 4's upcoming Changing Rooms reboot.
The former Big Brother presenter will be seen making over peoples' homes alongside interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen when the popular show – which originally aired on the BBC between 1996 and 2004 – returns.
"I'm so excited to be presenting Changing Rooms. It's the perfect time to bring it back. Everyone is going DIY and decor mad," McCall said in a statement, referencing the many people up and down the UK who have been busying themselves during the pandemic by doing renovations on their own places.
"I can't wait to see all the amazing transformations. I might even get stuck in myself if I'm allowed to be let loose with a paint brush." The programme sees two groups of people swap houses and attempt to update a room based on a professional's vision. It was originally hosted by Carol Smillie and Linda Barker.
Confirmation of McCall's involvement comes after Smillie shared publicly that she would love to come back for all-new episodes. As for Llewelyn-Bowen, it appears he needed a little more convincing...
"It's taken quite a lot of coaxing to get me under the Changing Rooms banner once more, but nothing like as much coaxing as it's going to take to squeeze those leather trousers back on," he joked.
