About the Show

Ty Pennington (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) is one of the USA's most popular makeover show hosts. Now he's crossed the pond and has vowed to clean up Britain, one run-down public space at a time. Using his unique motivational skills, design know-how and 'can-do' attitude, he helps transform towns and villages. But this is no ordinary makeover show; Ty has no money, no construction team, and no contacts. In fact the only thing he has is his personality and his reputation. Befriending and motivating the local community, he must work out a way that he can get them to agree on a plan to beautify their local community spaces. But that's not all - Ty has to convince local businesses to donate their services, find a workforce to work for free, and all in a very limited time frame. In this series, Ty is in Portreath – a small town whose survival depends on tourism. The competition is tough and storms devastated the town and damaged the one area, The Park, which the entire village could use. But Portreath has an indomitable community spirit. Local young mums have led the campaign to restore this vital village area – somewhere for both the young and old to congregate. Ty will need to rally all the community representatives and come up with a design that enables the entire village to benefit from The Park. It needs a playground, a new football pitch, seating area for the mums, a store full of the latest sports equipment, and a stunning walk. It must all be fully funded and completed in an aesthetic, environmentally friendly way – all within one week! With the clock ticking, will Ty complete his mission of mercy? It's a tall order, but if anyone can do it, Ty can.
