Good news for those obsessed with decluttering and storage (like myself). A second series of the storage and organisational show “Gutted” is coming to UKTV’s Home Channel in mid January.
In their own words Gutted, “sets out to prove less is more and gives one unsuspecting hoarder the fright of their lives. Nominated by their family (and with their help) the junk lover returns home, puts their key in the door and walks in to discover that everything they own has been removed. All that remains are the bare walls of their house and presenter Mark Durden-Smith, who gives each hoarder 48 hours to get their possessions back.”
Actually there’s a bit more to Gutted than that as the show seeks to show hoarders the less-is-more light and provides some handy storage and organisational tips alone the way.
UKTV is a joint venture between Flextech ( a division of Telewest Cable company) and the BBC and I think the BBC’s involvement in this storage show is reflected in the quality of the programming. My hunch is that by 2011 we’ll see Gutted on weeknights on BBC2 or similar and decluttering will go mainstream.
Tune in to Gutted on Virgin 265 and Sky channel 246. For more details on Gutted and for some handy storage and decluttering tips logon to www.Lovehome.co.uk and you could also win £500 worth of Habitat vouchers.
