Britain’s Biggest Hoarders

LIVING CHANNEL – Thursday 15 November, 9.30pm

Alan lives in a property so heavily hoarded that his wife, Marion, has nowhere to sit or wash. The council have given him just two weeks to clean up his garden; if he fails, the couple face prosecution. The stairs are so thick with rubbish and rotting food that even moving around is dangerous. Vasoulla, presenter Jasmine Harman’s mum, can only fully access one of her five bedrooms. Torn between wanting a better life for her and her son, and a deep emotional attachment to her belongings, she has nonetheless agreed to a total house clearance. Each hoarder presents a unique challenge, but together they help Jasmine understand this complex and debilitating psychological disorder.
