Interior and property experts Justin Ryan and Colin McAllister are here to seek out the country's most needy houses and drag them kicking and screaming into stylish and practical shape.

Each week they take on a design disaster zone and meet the perpetrators of the style crimes. To atone for their sins, Colin and Justin help them turn their homes into the most des of reses.

Colin and Justin's backgrounds lie in print journalism and they have recently published Britain's 100 Most Beautiful Homes for IPC as Contributing Home Editors. They still write design features for a wide range of publications, including BBC Good Homes, Home magazine and Living etc.

Colin and Justin also presented Trading Up in the Sun, an overseas spin-off that helps people buy homes in France, Spain and Cyprus. Justin and Colin were also veterans of the series Housecall on BBC1, where they designed one-hour makeover interiors live on the show and answered viewers' questions.

They have been event managers for the Scottish Ideal Home Show for the last five years and have designed the Special Feature at the Earls Court Ideal Home Show for the last four.
