ITV daytime show Peter Andre’s 60 Minute Makeover returns for its tenth outing with a new name and host. Reality TV star and singer Peter Andre plus a team of helpers and designers carry out surprise makeovers of deserving home-owners around the country.

The interior designers on hand to help include Linda Barker, Julia Kendell, Leah Hughes and Ben Hillman who are experts in home renovation, recycling old furniture, and knowing how to add a personal touch to a home without the price tag.

In May 2013, the 60 Minute Makeover team visited Faversham where they transformed a house as well as Herne Bay where the team tries to transform a bedroom and office in just one hour.

In June 2013, the 60 Minute Makeover team also visited widower Steven Arnold and his daughter Charlotte in Rochester where they transformed a dining room and bedroom.
