We're probably all guilty of holding on to useless things in the hope we may need them one day but at what point does holding on become hoarding? When does cluttered become chaotic? When does disorderly become dysfunctional?
A new series meets people with various obsessions and compulsions. In the first episode we meet the people whose living rooms look more like landfill sites as their inability to throw anything away endangers their lives and tears their families apart. We're joined by Brian Ward whose 19-year hoarding habit resulted in a crisis clear-out that pushed his relationship with his daughter Heather to breaking point.
