A date has been set for the airing of DIY SOS: The Big Build in Hopesay, south Shropshire.

Nick Knowles and his BBC crew came to the village near Craven Arms in February, where they were joined by more than 100 helpers, from local tradesmen to neighbours and general well-wishers from across the region. The results will now be shown on BBC One, on June 9 at 8pm. 

The team and volunteers spent a week working on the house and garden of ex-fireman Joe and his seven year-old daughter, Lucy who had been living in a caravan on site after a string of tragedies and misfortunes, including the death of Jess, Joe’s wife and Lucy’s mother, in 2014.
