A WOMAN whose neighbour appeared on 60 Minute Makeover has revealed a major twist to the 'surprise' reveal – with her even redecorating the house.
The ITV renovation programme saw lucky participants have rooms in their homes completely transformed in just one hour.
Each homeowner was nominated by a friend or neighbour and kept in the dark about the renovations until they returned home to see the end result.
However, former builder on the show Craig Phillips recently revealed how the programme is completely staged.
Now, one woman has told how her neighbour was instructed to 'act surprised' by producers when she saw her house transformation.
The homeowner, who posted on Reddit, said TV crews were outside her neighbour's house for weeks.

She revealed: "They must've been there for about 3 1/2 weeks. Our street is kinda small too, so their huge food tent would get in the way constantly (nice food though).
"The woman who's home was being redecorated, ended up finding out about the 'surprise', and I can remember one of the producers telling her to 'act surprised' when she walked in."
Despite the tiresome work of the 60 Minute Makeover crew, the woman ended up redecorating the house just weeks later.
"She had her son re-paint the whole place, because she hated the colours they chose," her neighbour added.
