Following a hugely successful first series, which earned Welsh indie, Chwarel, a BAFTA Award in the Daytime category, The Great House Giveaway is back and welcomes a new presenter, Tayo Oguntonade, it was announced today (TUES).
As a result of Channel 4's Black to Front project, property expert Tayo permanently joins the hosting team alongside returning presenter Simon O'Brien (Find It, Fix It, Flog It; Lost and Found), and S4C's presenter Carys Davies (S4C's Ar Werth/For Sale).
In this game-changing property format, which partners with finance experts Together, The Great House Giveaway sees two people, who have never met and have never owned a home, given a lump sum to buy a property at auction. The pair then have six months to revive the property into a habitable and desirable home with the aim to split any profits. If they don't sell – the house goes back to auction.
Five episodes are set to air in September as part of the project, where we'll see experienced Mortgage Broker, Property Expert, and Investor, Tayo, on hand to offer advice and handy tips to our DIY hopefuls.
Tayo Oguntonade said: "helping to get people on the property ladder has been a passion of mine for a long time, one of which I've been doing throughout my career. I am so excited to be joining The Great House Giveaway team and getting to share my advice with not only the renovation new-comers on the show but also the viewers at home!"
