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.

Brand new house for 5k is a farce, they started a house in Chingford in March and it is still not finished. The programme will go to air and they have left a home in a state. Shame on Linda!!
