Today the Cowboy Builders Team is in Portsmouth coming to the aid of first time buyers Will and Jo.

Watch 11:45 Monday 11 May 2015 on Channel 5

Their dreams have been shattered as their build has gone wrong, the house is uninhabitable and now they’re thousands of pounds out of pocket. Can Dan, Laura and Edward put this build back on track and help Jo and Will fall back in love with their property or is it too late?

Laura finds out how deep the emotional impact of this build has been upon the young couple, who’ve had to move back into their parents’ houses whilst forking out money on a mortgage not to mention the monthly instalments for keeping their belongings in storage.

Dan meanwhile investigates the   importance of getting builds right from the outset and Gareth gives him a lesson in dealing with soilage issues and unsightly soil pipes! Can Jo and Will get over this hurdle and move back in to their home? Will Edward be able to address their concerns and can Gareth fix their problems and salvage their dreams of their first home?
