The Hoarder Next Door, 8pm, Channel 4
Ever seen this show? It is brilliant, clever, disturbing and completely addictive. Each week psychotherapist Stelios Kiosses meets with a patient, who has developed an extreme hoarding problem, to the extent that they can barely live, sleep or eat in their own home. This week he meets with 66-year-old Alex whose 30-year ‘collection’ is one of the most extreme that he has ever seen. The more stuff he packs into his house, the more his loved ones are moving out and away. Plus another patient, Lawrence has developed such an addiction to bird figurines that he has nowhere left to, well, do anything.
