A Lancashire celebrity is presenting a three-part ITV series which explores the nation’s obessession with property and home renovations.

Preston-born Ranvir Singh is the presenter of ITV’s Save Money: My Beautiful Green Home and she, along with expert and designer Kunle Barker, will be showing us how we can all achieve the green dream without breaking the bank.

Following three families as they renovate and retrofit their traditional homes with the latest green technology, they will showcase how creative thinking can transform anyone’s home into a truly beautiful and sustainable environment, not only helping to save the planet, but saving lots of money too.

In addition, Ranvir and Kunle will be blown away when they meet the owners and architects of some of the nation’s most trailblazing eco-builds.

Ranvir said: “We are looking at how you can be environmentally friendly in the decisions you make when you are renovating your home, or re-doing a room, or building from scratch.

“And what this programme does – and it’s really enlightened me – is [show] that there’s so much interesting new technology that’s being used in the way the paints are made, the way you plaster your bathroom, in the kind of tiling you might use, and in the recycled luxury kitchens you can get now.”

Posting to her Instagram page, Ravir said the new show was “eye-opening” and recommends it to anyone who enjoys “property porn”.

She said: “What a lovely, happy, eye-opening and, at times, jaw-dropping series!

“Every Monday night at 8pm on @itv for the next three weeks! Love property shows in general so to do this one myself and hear the expert opinion of @kunlebarker was exciting.

“Hope you find it fun and informative and a bit like #pinterest #propertyporn #rightmove on the TV and with me along for the ride!

“Also to be honest it’s really made me rethink how to improve energy saving in my own house, be greener, and actually think about reducing my own gas bills - considering the squeeze going on at the moment.. hope you enjoy it!”

She also posted a picture of herself posing in a hot tub which she said will feature in one of the episodes.

Ranvir explained in an ITV interview: “The hot tub was interesting – there was quite a lot of persuading done by the producer to get me to do this!

“This was one of our ‘postcards’ the pinnacle of what – if you have the expertise, the land, what could you possibly do.

“They just chop the wood from the top of the field and bring it down. It was beautiful and I didn’t want to get out. That was a bit of a perk of the job! Really good fun.”

What happened in the first episode and when is the show on again?

The first episode aired last night (18 October) and took viewers to Manchester to meet Sian and Glenn Absalom, who want to redo their kitchen on a shoestring budget.

By installing an off the shelf kitchen made from recycled plastic and using a lino floor made from flaxseed, they keep their carbon foot print low but with stunning results; with new double glazing and energy efficient appliances they hope to slash their bills.

Sian and Glenn’s new eco-friendly kitchen came in at just over £5,000 and Ranvir described it as a “green triumph”

With all the new appliances, Sian's family will save thousands on utility bills.

 For a bit of eco-inspiration, Ranvir also heads to visit a flat pack Huf Haus which runs using no fossil fuels.

The remaining episodes will air on ITV on Mondays at 8pm. You can catch up with previous episodes on ITV player.
