George’s production company, Amazing Productions, are casting for his new show, which has a working title of Project Home.

In the show George, who rose to prominence on TV shows such as Restoration Man and Amazing Spaces, will help buyers turn buildings not previously intended for domestic use into extraordinary homes.

George, who makes regular trips back to his home region where he is a trustee of the Foundation of Light charity, said: ”From pubs to police stations, banks to bakeries, factories to workshops; we have some incredible buildings that are an important link to our past. They all tell a story, and by making them personal projects we have a unique opportunity to write new chapters in the biography of a building’s life.”

A spokeswoman from the production company said: “Hidden in plain sight, or squirrelled away down side streets, extraordinary new opportunities are arising in our cities and suburbs. Because of the way we now work and shop, many commercial and industrial buildings have shut down and are all too often left empty or abandoned. To breathe life back into them, we need to convert them into homes for the future, and thanks to more relaxed planning regulations, it’s becoming easier.”
