Stacey will give you a tour – but who lives in a house like this?

If you can’t walk by someone’s front window without having a good look in, this property show is right up your street. Stacey Dooley begins in Kent, having a look around a converted barn owned by Fern, who lives there with her husband Mark and dog Digger. But can celebrity judges – Bill Bailey, Emily Atack, Jamali Maddix, Judi Love and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen – figure out who the owner is from the four Ferns who all claim to live there? Forget the property ladder, this fun new show is all about the property blather!
