Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare

8:00pm Saturday, November 19 on TV One

English property guru and TV presenter Sarah Beeny is famous for putting amateur property developers in their place. So what happens when she attempts to put her money where her mouth is? Sarah has just six months to transform Rise Hall, her crumbling country house near Hull, into a picture perfect wedding venue.

Get ready to see Sarah Beeny as she’s never been seen before. Together with her husband Graham Swift, this unflappable, seemingly omniscient property developer is about to take on the fight of her life – against dry rot, collapsing floors, leaking roofs, rotten sash windows and a host of other structural problems.

Facing delay after delay, the snowiest winter in years, and mounting bills, she’s asked what advice she would have given anyone else. “Don’t do it!” she says with a smile. So is this Beeny’s folly? Has she finally bitten off more than she can chew?
