Optomen is to make a six-part series of Sort Your Life Out, presented by Stacey Solomon, after piloting the show last year.
Solomon is known on her social media channels for offering decluttering tips and upcycling hacks.
“Stacey will be joined by a crack team of expert friends – organiser extraordinaire Dilly Carter, carpenter and upcycler Robert Bent, and cleaning fanatic Iwan Carrington – who love nothing more than a supersize sort out. Together they’ll makeover Britain’s cluttered homes by first stripping them bare, then laying all their possessions out in a giant warehouse resembling an art installation of their entire lives, before asking the families to let go of thousands of their possessions. Emotions will run high as the families must decide what to keep and what to let go of. The items that the families’ part with will be recycled, donated or sold.”
Once sorted, Stacey and her team will reorganise their home by cleaning, upcycling and putting systems in place for the possessions they decide to keep. Each of the team has their own unique cleaning quirks and tidying tips that viewers will be able to take away and implement in their own homes.
Presenter, Stacey Solomon, said: “There’s always that one room or cupboard I can’t face sorting out at home, but once I’ve done it there’s nothing more satisfying. One cupboard at a time, we’ll be helping families declutter their homes and get organised in a way that works for them. I’ll be sharing my ultimate tidying and upcycling tips, from Lazy Susans to tension rods, there’ll be lots of great ideas to give viewers the confidence to finally tackle that cupboard!”
Emily Smith, Commissioning Editor, says: “After filming a successful pilot last year, we’re so excited for this series with Stacey and her team. It’s amazing what they can do to turn homes around without having to spend loads. As well as all the useful and inspiring ideas, it’s ultimately a series about families and modern life which we can all relate to.”
Tina Flintoff and Nick Hornby, CEOs Optomen Television, says: “We’re delighted to be making such a timely show with such great talent.”
