DIY SOS: The Big Build

Weeknights from Mon 21st Jan, 9pm

No challenge is big enough, no cause is too worthy. Nick Knowles and his DIY SOS team are back with channel premiere episodes that reward deserving members of a community with makeovers that will make their lives easier. And, as ever, they rope in friends, family and anyone else who can help to get the job done.

Series 23 starts in dramatic fashion. Derbyshire is the destination for Nick and the team as they travel to Chesterfield to help Lisa and Richard Watson and their young family. Their daughter Madison was born with a heart defect and a rare eating disorder that requires 24-hour care from Lisa. Richard is a builder who began an extension to their home to accommodate his expanding family, but even though he's been working up to 18 hours a day, he's been unable to get any further than the shell of the new rooms. The situation is putting an immense strain on the family.

The support Nick Knowles and the team receive from the building trade and local community is as strong as ever, but it is a big build to fit into ten days.
