Phil Spencer Down Under

About the Show

About the Show

Phil is in magnificent Melbourne waiting to surprise a couple of Brits fresh off the plane and find them their dream home down under.

Charles and Michelle Knight are after a family home with room for Michelle's dog grooming business, but finding a house with enough space for her to open her pooch parlour is a tall order. Luckily, unbeknown to Charles and Michelle, Phil is crouched, ready to surprise them and take on the role of their secret agent down under. He's got four potential properties lines up for them to see, but will they be enough to tempt the Knights to buy? Along the way Phil will have more surprises to spring. He'll be unleashing his own brutal version of agent property particulars on an Aussie local who's struggling to sell their house.

He'll tell the seller just where they're going wrong and how to put it right. Once the work's been carried out he'll bring in the Knights to see if the changes are enough to make them want to buy. In another twist he'll also give Michelle and Charles's search a new focus by playing them a surprise message from their nearest and dearest back in Blighty, with friends and family saying just what they think would make the our Brits happy in a property. He'll then use what he's heard to send them on a secret mission of their own. With all the houses viewed, will the Knights like any of Phil's selection enough to put in an offer and lay down permanent roots in Oz?

G,day Phil, love the show, though miss dear Kirstie!
my only concern is the show needs to balance the experience of Brits coming to Australia. We came as a family around 8 years ago from Norfolk .We have found our time here expensive, isolating, and our pay doesn,t go as far as in the UK. even though David and I are working at the same job ( for less money). We cant afford to live near the sea, and find Melbourne over crowded, full of traffic and dirty. Utilities are double and food is ***r compared to Europe. We emigrated on the 45 year old boundary and would love to see you advise people of our generation on how to do it better than we could. Take care.
