Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen of Changing Rooms and Diarmuid Gavin of Home Front in the Garden join forces to give a five-part insight into the relationship between designers and their clients. This week, they employ a raised floor covered in black leather, veneer storage sections, and a circular wooden children's area to transform the home of single mother-of-three Meriene, involving her at every stage of creating the minimalist look she desires.

Yet another permutation of the makeover show, this time featuring Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and garden designer Diarmuid Gavin. The former redesigns one room in a private house, while Gavin creates a beautiful garden to go with it. It is meant to give viewers a flavour of the relationship between designer and client, but it is the bickering, almost laddish relationship between Gavin and Llewelyn-Bowen that dominates, something you'll either love or hate. "Every other show I've done has been restricted by its format," says Llewelyn-Bowen. "This is design with the gloves off." (JR)
