Changing Rooms reboot confirmed with Davina McCall and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen

Changing Rooms is making a comeback with Davina McCall replacing Carol Smillie as the reboot host. 

Davina will join iconic designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen for the series, which will air on Channel 4. 

Changing Rooms was a 90s favourite as two competing teams would renovate a room in each other’s houses – with some mixed and unique results. 

‘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!,’ Davina confirmed in The Sun. 

‘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!’ 

‘It’s taken quite a lot of coaxing to get me under the Changing Rooms banner once more,’ Laurence admitted. ‘But nothing like as much coaxing as it’s going to take to squeeze those leather trousers back on.’ 

The potential of a series return was teased back in August, but original host Carol Smillie said at the time she hadn’t been given the call. 

‘It was definitely the favourite show of my career, without a doubt. It would be the only show I’d come back to telly for,’ she told The Sun at the time.

Carol led the ship of the much-loved makeover show, from 1996-2003, with Laurence – who had been on the show as a designer – taking over for the final year.

Running for an impressive 10 seasons, the show has become known for its makeover disasters as much as its makeover winners.

Who can forget the moment Laurence’s bright red makeover left one woman in tears? And when another woman was horrified as a hanging shelving unit collapsed, taking her beloved tea pot collection with her?!

It’s still not been confirmed if other regular faces, including DIY expert Handy Andy Kane, Anna Ryder Richardson and Linda Barker, will make the return too. 

Changing Rooms is returning at an unconfirmed date on Channel 4.
