Episode 45 - Bromley

Today Melinda Messenger and Dan Lobb are in Bromley with Jo Guest, whose bathroom bodging has meant that her partner Dave hasn’t been able to shower in her house since he moved in six months ago.

Watch 11:10 Thursday 1st Oct 2015 on Channel 5

Jo and bodybuilder Dave had bonded five years before over a mutual love of soul music. As their relationship blossomed, Dave moved into Jo’s house with her and her 19 year old son Nathan.  But there were a few flies in the romance ointment caused by Jo’s dodgy DIY skills. A leak in the bathroom had led to Jo taking the whole shower apart – but without knowing how to put it back together. Which meant Dave, who was too big to fit in the bath, was forced to shower at the gym.  And there was a problem in the bedroom….too much clutter and Jo’s dilapidated wardrobe, which was a health and safety nightmare!  

 Luckily the Cowboys Team are here to get this love nest back in tune. Dan and builder Martin Gonzalez need to get to grips with that leaky shower for Dave’s sake, which could mean ripping it all out and starting from scratch. Meanwhile 6’ 4” Dan has a personal interest in finding out about shower options for the bigger bloke. Melinda and designer Edward Robinson are determined to create sweet harmony for the couple with a bit of decluttering and a fabulous bedroom makeover. But a wallpaper disaster means Melinda has to make an executive decision in Ed’s absence will he go into designer meltdown?
