GEORGE Clarke has taken a swipe at Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer’s property shows – and why he’ll never watch them.
Ahead of the second series of Remarkable Renovations, the Channel 4 presenter opened up about his own home habits away from the TV.
“No disrespect to Kevin McCloud, Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer, but that’s the last thing I want to watch when I get home,” he told Radio Times.
“I won’t even watch my own shows – I know what I’ve filmed and I see snippets when recording voiceovers.

“But I do find myself checking out the Georgian architecture in Bridgerton or the swish New York apartments in Billions.
He revealed that his go-to shows were usually binge-watched, adding: “I don’t watch any TV all week because I’m working.
“So at weekends, I’m always playing catch-up on box-set dramas, usually several at once. I’m about to watch the final series of Peaky Blinders, too.”
Despite his good tips and the reasons to love renovating, Flipping Fast – George’s recent series – has left some viewers with big issues.
The programme follows six teams of would-be property developers as they compete to see who can make the biggest profit in a year.
Viewers soon discussed their thoughts on the show and expressed the time frame “just wasn’t long enough” to see a big enough difference.
Taking to Twitter, one person penned: “Something hasn’t quite clicked with Flipping Fast. They’ve only done up a couple of houses.

“It needs to be filmed over a longer period of time, so there’s more jeopardy – and interest for the audience.”
Echoing their comments, someone else said: “What’s the point of these so-called property experts when all they do is state the bleeding obvious?”
While a third remarked: “The filming of Flipping Fast makes no sense whatsoever to me. Unimaginative. Unrealistic. Unwatchable.”
