Learn DIY as celeb builder Craig Phillips launches new TV show

Celebrity builder and ex-Big Brother winner Craig Phillips is fronting a new DIY show, where clueless DIY’ers compete to see who can improve their DIY skills.

Craig, 39, is hosting If It’s Broke Fix It, a 10-part series on the Home channel, which will see two teams of novice DIY’ers compete to see who can complete the jobs they have avoided for years in just 48 hours.

Craig will teach the two teams basic DIY skills at his workshop in Shropshire and they will then go off and complete a series of DIY tasks.

Craig is most famous for winning the first series of Big Brother, has spent over a decade working in TV as a DIY expert on programs like Housecall and 60 Minute Makeover. Craig told the Liverpool Echo:

“The show is unique because there’s a competitive element to it too. I judge who’s done the best job so it’s like a game show. The winner gets a golden hammer and £500 of DIY vouchers.”
