Barker to front new makeover show

Linda Barker is to front a new home makeover show for Channel 5.

The former Changing Rooms presenter will host Brand New Home For £5k, which will see her work with a team of experts to revamp people's homes on a budget.

Linda will take the keys to dilapidated and dated homes, empty the contents and repair and redecorate the interior for £5,000.

Commissioning editor Emma Westcott said: "Linda's background and love of design makes her the perfect presenter for Brand New Home For £5k. As the housing market is closing in, we think viewers will be fascinated by what can be achieved with a £5k budget."

Interior designer Linda rose to fame on BBC home makeover Changing Rooms which launched in 1996. In 2002 she came third in reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Channel 5 has commissioned three 60 minute episodes of the new show from GroupM Entertainment and Zodiak Media's Red House, which produces Channel 4's Help! My House is Falling Down.
