At the end of each challenge, the weakest designer sat on the couch to face the judges, and at least one was eliminated.
So, here’s everything you need to know as the third season of The Interior Design Masters returns in its new home on BBC One.
When does the Master of Interior Design start?
Season three starts on BBC One on Wednesday 9 March at 9pm.
The launch will feature 10 aspiring designers and the first challenge, in short, to transform five high-end rental apartments in Manchester.
Who is hosting Master Interior Design?
Alan Carr will return to host the third season after replacing Fearne Cotton in the second season.
Speaking of this year’s series, Allen said: “It’s bigger, bolder, more dynamic, and I think with the transition from BBC 2 to BBC 1, it has gained extra confidence.
“The challenges of this series were tough from the start, so the designers had to really stand up and think, even from the first episode. There’s nothing ridiculous, the masters of interior design for this series mean business.”
Who is judging interior design masters?
Returning chief judge, interior design guru and former editor of Elle Decoration Michelle Ogundehin, along with some of the biggest names in the industry, will examine design skills.
This year’s guest judges include Matthew Williamson, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Mary Portas, Guy Oliver, Sophie Robinson, Ross Bailey, Abigail Ahern and Sarah Willingham.
Michelle said, “I love how engaged the audience is when they follow our 10 trainee designers. I really care about them, and the audience starts to care about them. I think it’s a story that people play out on their design journey.
“You can’t help but get addicted. It can get emotional! But it’s also super fun and, dare I say it, educational for the audience?”
