Episode 7 - Oldham

Charity worker Maggie Hurley in Oldham is in deep trouble.... and has an even deeper secret!

Watch 11:45 Tuesday 5 May 2015 on Channel 5

Her 50th birthday party is looming but her house is a disaster zone; her bathroom is a no go area and having sometimes successfully avoided people seeing her very badly bodged handiwork, her secret is now coming out. 

Maggie is considering drastic measures such as hiring a portaloo to stop people using her toilet!  Poor Maggie has turned her hand to tiling  but the tiles keep falling off, has given grouting a go but it’s gone wrong and the sealing of her bathroom has not been successful! What she’s ended up with is a mouldy bathroom.

Luckily for Maggie help is at hand and Melinda, Dan and Edward get to grips with this infamous bathroom, enlisting Maggie’s son and some of her best friends in the process to help with the DIY transformation. But will the bathroom be finished in time? What will Maggie think about Edward’s design plan? Will she approve of his bold colour schemes and can Maggie the Disaster DIY-er be taught the tricks of the trade?! More importantly will her party go ahead?
