Meanwhile, designer Edward gives the room a facelift hopefully erasing the bad memories Gill’s horrible handiwork left behind. There’s a DIY masterclass on how to remove tiles safely and John and Edward rope in the family’s teenage sons to make a kitchen clock but things don’t go according to plan…
