BBC One has ordered a second run of entertainment format This is My House for an extended run of ten episodes in an evolved 30-minute format.

The guessing game format created by Richard Bacon and Nick Weidenfeld, and produced by Expectation, will once again see four people all claim to be the same person and that “This Is MY House”. A panel of celebrities will be tasked with sussing out which “homeowner” is telling the truth and which are the actors.

The BBC said the first series averaged 2.8 million and proved popular among younger audiences too, who took to social media playing along in their own homes, debating the truth behind who was spinning the most convincing lies. The BBC’s own social media coverage of This is My House generated over 7 million video views across Facebook and Instagram, the majority of which came from Under 35s.

Richard Bacon, Creator and Executive Producer says: “I loved seeing the way the audience responded to the show. Especially on social media as it was happening. It’s given me the confidence to lean right into the absurd humour this time. Also, I’m proud of the fact it did so well with young audiences.”

The second series of This Is MY House is set to be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in 2022.

This Is MY House ( 10 x 30’ ) is an Expectation production for BBC One and has been commissioned by Kate Phillips, Director of Entertainment Commissioning.

The format was created by Richard Bacon and US-based TV producer Nick Weidenfeld. The Executive Producers for Expectation are Tom Whitrow and Richard Bacon. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Pinki Chambers.

Format rights to the show are licensed internationally by BBC Studios.
