Series overview
 
Interior design expert Linda Barker presents the new ITV daytime series that sees home owners compete to make the most profit from a major property renovation.  
 
The Home Game turns the makeover format on its head by fast forwarding to the exciting bit – the transformation and the price.
 
The ten part series will feature four stories per episode, with makeovers ranging from high end kitchen extensions to restorations, garden overhauls and garage conversions.
 
At the beginning of each episode viewers will see how much each house is worth and what their budget is. Plus, they’re reveal the reasons they’re overhauling their houses - whether it’s for empty nesters or making space for an ever expanding family.
 
And, in a unique twist, footage will jump straight from the before shots to the glamorous reveals. But will their design choices be expected, or will they throw the rule book out of the window?
 
At the end of each programme,  Linda will reveal how much they’ve spent and exactly how much their house is worth now.
 
The one that’s made the most profit will be crowned the winner.
