TV presenter Fearne Cotton is fronting Project Interiors (working title), a new interior design competition TV series coming soon to BBC Two and Netflix. Fearne’s new eight-part TV series will see ten fledgling designers tackle interior design challenges and compete to win a life-changing design contract with a prestigious commercial client.
Fearne recently left Celebrity Juice, the wacky ITV gameshow co-starring Keith Lemon and This Morning’s Holly Willoughby, after 10 years on the show.
Project Interiors will be judged by Michelle Ogundehin (pictured left next to Fearne Cotton in the above photo), the former Editor-in-Chief of ELLE Decoration magazine, who will enlist the help of design gurus Mary Portas, Jade Jagger and Matthew Williamson as specialist guest judges.
The teams of blossoming designers on Project Interiors will be confronted with a new space to transform each week as they attempt to impress the judges, from redesigning hair salons to holiday chalets to family homes.
Working to tight deadlines, the teams are put to the test throughout the competition as they are judged on their creative skill as designers, as well as their ability to manage a project from the initial planning to execution.
The designers will also need to work together each week, to enable them to remain in the competition and have a chance of scooping the grand prize.
“I’m thrilled to be part of this new show,” says Fearne Cotton. “With such a love of interiors, art and design this show couldn’t be any more up my street. The designers on the show are so talented, so it’s going to be really creatively inspiring with loads of wow moments.”
“It’s so exciting to be part of a show that truly celebrates the art and craft of what it really takes to be a great interior designer,” adds series judge Michelle Ogundehin. “Plus there’s jeopardy, intrigue and even some tears too!”
The show’s production company, Darlow Smithson Productions, part of Endemol Shine Group UK, has previously produced television programmes like Ancient Megastructures, Made In Great Britain and Roman Villa.
Project Interiors will be shown first on BBC Two, followed by Netflix at a later date. BBC Two is, of course, the original home of popular TV makeover shows such as Changing Rooms and Ground Force.
