Pimp my Shed: Dad of four girls Simon gets his shed pimped, Mini-style!
It's finally the BIG day, when the nation finds out which lucky father got to have his shed pimped!
We asked you - you soppy lot - to send in videos telling us why your dad is the best in the world. We were inundated, and we laughed (and cried loads) while watching them; but unfortunately on this occasion we could only chose one.
We chose Simon who was nominated by his lovely daughters Caroline, Lauren, Rachel and Ellie (with a little help from mum Karen and Poppy the dog). Simon is a member of that much overlooked institution, the Great British Dad; a dad who uses his car like an unofficial taxi; a dad who dances badly and embarrasses his children in public; a dad who loves and is loved by his family alike.
So to treat this very special dad, celebrity gardener David Domoney had some very special 'pimping' up his sleeve. We discovered that Simon is a huge fan of classic Mini Coopers, and had several until daughters came along and larger family vehicles were required. So how could we do better than to turn his shed into that most iconic of cars! Oh, we should also mention that Simon occasionally like a pint, so they asked if it could be a Mini-themed bar!
So the theme was Mini, but David's ideas for the project were EPIC.
With a little help from mum and family we sent Simon away for a romantic weekend, completely unaware that our team of ten pimpers was going to descend on his garden and transform his rather sad looking shed into something special.
