Desperate Houses Revisited RTÉ One, Thursday 7.00pm

Programme 1

The Desperate Houses team are back and this time they're revisiting the homes they helped to declutter, revamp and redecorate in previous series.

The first three programmes are presented by Clodagh Conroy, follow Clodagh as she heads back to visit "desperate houses" in Laytown, Ballymun and Milltown. Avril Murphy Allen presents the next three programmes revisiting Galway, Finglas and Carlow.

Will Clodagh and Avril find that the people they helped have changed their old ways and made good on their promises to maintain their newly decluttered rooms or have they fallen back into old bad habits?

In this the first revisited programme, Clodagh revisits Andrew and Denise Farrell and their two daughters Mia and Holly in Laytown, Co. Meath.

A self confessed compulsive buyer and hoarder, the last time Denise was on the show she admitted she couldn't walk into a shop without buying something! Back then the entire house was cluttered with clothes upstairs and down and the girls hardly ever wore the same outfit twice!

A year on from the decluttering process, Clodagh pays a surprise visit to Denise and Andrew's home to see if they have kept the house spick and span and to see if the shopping sprees have stopped!
