A Walthamstow family is wanted by a TV production company to feature in a brand new property makeover show.

Producers are targeting Walthamstow because of its booming property market, as well as what they describe as the area’s interesting mix of characters.

The show, working title Linda Barker’s Makeover, will feature a design and build team led by the interior decorator and TV presenter.

“Good design needn’t cost the earth,” she said.

“A compromising budget shouldn’t ever hinder stylish design, this programme is for those people who aim to have the very best, despite tight purse strings.”

The show will demonstrate the work that can be done on a limited budget using techniques including upcycling, reclamation, salvage and looking beyond the high street.

Those interested are urged to apply by emailing
