Trusted tradesmen to be featured on 'DIY SOS'

By Deborah Bates, on 10 February 2011

Trusted tradesmen from local communities across the nation are to be featured on BBC 1's television show, 'DIY SOS', according to a press release on

The show - hosted by TV personality, Nick Knowles - helps the British public by transforming homes that are in dire straits and in need of some serious TLC.

Supported by a range of local tradesmen, DIY specialists, and the homeowners' friends and family, Knowles gives properties a new lease of life.

In order to undertake the renovations, the BBC have to approach producers of general household fittings, such as those made for kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms. One company enlisted for the new series, Better Bathrooms, said it was "delighted" to be involved.

"We are always looking for opportunities to help out those in need and when we heard about the project, we wanted to be involved immediately," a representative for the company claimed.

"We are now looking forward to seeing the reaction of the recipient when their new designer bathroom suites are unveiled."

Cited as the UK's "most successful factual series on TV" on, the programme will give the local tradesmen a chance to show off their skills; perhaps prompting others who were not so lucky as to be featured on the programme to give the tradesmen a call and undertake their own renovation.
