Changing Rooms stars Jordan Cluroe and Russel Whitehead hint at serious clash
The Changing Rooms reboot could see tensions rise as Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen returns to the iconic 1990s show joined by new design experts Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead.
The hit Channel 4 interior design show will return to our screens on Wednesday evening with a whole new cast as Anna Richardson presents the nostalgic makeover show and it’s fair to say fans can’t wait to see what they’ve got planned for 2021.
The interior design duo are used to working closely together asco-founders of their design company 2LG Studio and a happily married couple, but the pair have hinted that the two will lock horns thoroughout the series.
As the pair attempt to mix business with pleasure, they sat down with Christine Lampard on ITV’s Lorraine to spill the beans on the upcoming show.
Reflecting on the reboot, Jordan explained: "We often say to our real clients in real life, we’ll have the arguments for you and I think if we’re not bickering or pushing ourselves, then we’re not getting the best results so often that the way to get there."
His loving husband Russell agreed: "He’s uber confident and completely instinctual whereas I need details and storyboarding, so we have a very different approach which sometimes creates a massive clash."
As he watched his detail orientated husband share his side of the story, he joked: "I’m like, ‘it’s pink, it’s just pink’, and he’s like ‘But why is it pink? Let's interrogate the pink’."
The TV stars admitted that they were huge fans of the design show when it first aired in the 90s and found that the entire cast and crew got on like a house on fire when they joined the team.
But as the “biggest fans of the show the first time round” the pair were the most excited to work alongside TV legend Laurence who is the only cast member who has joined the group from the original show.
As the pair beamed from ear to ear, they admitted: “There was a lot of love in the room.”
Russell then declared: “Laurence is back from the grave, he’s a force of nature you can’t keep a good man down.
“He was great, it’s so funny we grew up watching the show so meeting him was lovely. It was such a mix of emotions but the overarching feeling was joy.”
Changing Rooms starts on Wednesday 18, August at 8pm on Channel 4
