EXTRAORDINARY EXTENSIONS

Tinie Tempah presents this epic new series that follows homeowners across the UK as they unleash their inner architect.

With a keen interest in property and design, having built an extensive property portfolio and renovated his own London pad, Tinie follows homeowners as they build beautiful, often radical and ‘out there’ home extensions.

In this first episode, Tinie follows the progress of two life-transforming builds. It’s often assumed that planners want designs that are sympathetic to existing buildings, but both of these extensions illustrate planners going for structures markedly different to the homes they’re attached to. The first extension, costing in excess of £1 million, is by the sea in Hampshire. Owned by primary school teacher Amy and her professional gambler husband Simon, they set out to breathe new life into three derelict buildings with one, uncompromising giant glass structure.

The second extension is in Herefordshire, designed to bring multigenerational living under a bold, angular ski slope roof for retired couple Alan and Lynda, and Alan’s elderly father. Both builds push architectural boundaries and illustrate the lengths homeowners will go to, to create the space they need in their much-loved homes.

BEV and JORD

Beverley Callard and Jordan North reunite after their successful I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! stint last year and they have a mission… Beverley is renewing her wedding vows with her husband Jon in Spain and has enlisted Jordan to help her plan and organise the special day.

Jordan will join Beverley travelling overland throughout Spain together, immersing themselves in local culture, enjoying everything from flamenco dancing to mud bathing and grape crushing to paella making! They’ll also be picking up all the wedding essentials they need along the way including cake, wines and the all-important dress! Beverley will also be encouraging Jordan to face his long list of fears by taking on some thrill-seeking activities like flyboarding, ziplining and even paragliding. Can he overcome his nerves and build on the confidence he developed in the castle?

The pair will travel through Northern Spain, Madrid, Toledo, Valencia and Benidorm before arriving in Mojacar, Almeria, where Beverley has a home and which, by coincidence, is just minutes from where Jordan’s parents now live. It’s here where the trip will culminate in an emotional renewal ceremony in the Spanish sunshine.

In tonights opening episode the pair head straight to the wine region of La Rioja to find the perfect wine for the wedding renewal.

BRASSIC

Ashley’s cousin Doolan has been kidnapped and his uncle Francis calls on Vinnie to be the bag drop man in his ransom.

Reluctantly agreeing to do the job, things go wildly awry when the boys are intercepted on route to the drop off and lose the money. With time ticking away, the lads hastily decide to fake the ransom and follow the pickup guy to wherever Doolan is being held.

Chaos ensues and after an unexpected encounter with a giant snake and nifty human-size squirrel on a moped, they get a surprise when they discover the true identity of the kidnapper…

JB Gill meets two farmers who are fighting back against rural crime, while Helen and Jules are joined by members of the Lancashire Police Rural Crime Team to find out about the new technology being used in the countryside to catch offenders.

And farming brothers Rob and Dave Nicholson travel to Jersey to meet a group of friends who have set up a tea plantation.
