The show followed 4 couples renovating four identical apartments in Brighton, with each couple given a budget of £25,000 to do so. They had to live in the apartments while continuing their daily lives.
Each week the couples are required to complete renovating a room in their apartment. At the end of each week's episode the room was judged by property expert Nicholas Cowell (brother of Simon Cowell) and the best couple won a prize (either furniture or building materials).
The show, which had been so popular in Australia where it originated, was not successful in the UK and after it premiered in a prime-time ITV slot, was moved to the "graveyard slot" of after 11pm. A second series was not commissioned.
