Producers of a new Channel 4 show featuring top property presenters Phil Spencer and Kirstie Allsopp are seeking Northamptonshire homeowners to appear on the programme.

Love It or List It is a 60-minute show hosted by the stars of Location, Location Location, which is currently in production.

The programme will feature families who are struggling to decide whether to renovate their house or buy a new one and it will see Kirstie try to convince the family they can make their current home work by transforming it.

Phil, on the other hand, will try to convince the household to sell up.

A spokesman for Raise the Roof Productions said it had already secured a family from Braunston, in Northamptonshire, to appear in the show and it is now looking for others in the county to take part.

“We currently are seeking homeowners who are considering moving house because their current property is not fulfilling their needs as a family any more,” the spokesman said.

“What we can offer our home owners through our series is expert advice and assistance in both property sales and renovation through our presenters, television’s top property couple, Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer.”

Participating families will be shown three or four homes that match their criteria by Phil, as he tries to convince them to ‘list it’, the production company said.

At the end of the programme, when they have seen all the houses with Phil and their own home transformation is complete, the family will then be asked whether to keep it or sell it.

Phil said: “It’s a dilemma that most families face at some point in their lives, so it will be great to help them navigate what will be the biggest decision they may ever make.”
