Alan Carr will replace Fearne Cotton as host when Interior Designer Masters returns to BBC Two for a second series.

The comedian will join Michelle Ogundehin, former editor in chief of Elle Decoration UK, who will return to her role as head judge and will enlist the help of design gurus and industry experts as specialist guest judges each week.

The eight-part series will see 10 up and coming designers tackle a range of design challenges and compete to win a design contract with a commercial client.

Alan Carr said: “I just can’t wait to get started on this.

“I’m such a huge fan of interior design and I’m chomping at the bit to see what these wonderfully creative people have in store for us.”

Michelle Ogundehin added: “I’m thrilled to be back for a second series to discover even more untapped design talent for Interior Design Masters.

“We had so many brilliant and exciting designs and designers on series one that I can’t wait to get going and see what the next cohort has to offer!”

The teams of budding designers will be confronted with a new commercial space to transform each week, ranging from shops to offices, show homes and restaurants.

Working to tight deadlines, they’ll be put to the test throughout the competition as they’re judged on their creative skills as designers, as well as their ability to manage a project from the initial planning to execution.

The designers will need to work together to enable them to remain in the competition and have a chance of scooping the prize.

Donna Clark, managing director of production company DSP said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be welcoming the wonderful Alan Carr to the Interior Design Masters fold.

“His wit and enthusiasm will definitely bring a dose of sparkle to the series and we can’t wait to see him take the helm.”

The first series aired on BBC Two last August in 2019.
