The show sees the presenter, best known for the BBC's DIY SOS, travel across Britain to offer six families a chance to ditch at least half of the clutter in return for a reconstruction of their entire house and deliver an incredible makeover.

He said about the Everitt family: "As the teenage son says at one point, 'Mum has a memory attached to every single thing, so every time she throws something away, she feels like she's throwing away a memory' which is a tough thing, obviously.

"Especially when your teenage kids are heading off into the world, you want to hang on to all those memories, because they're really important.

"But you have to create an environment in which the teenagers want to spend time in the living areas."

Four years ago, Nick Knowles moved from London to a tiny cottage in the countryside - and got rid of around 85% of his possessions.

The TV personality and former journalist, 58, wanted to make space for more important things, "like planting a vegetable garden that my little six-year-old boy and I can grow sweetcorn and peas in".

He continued: "While it feels uncomfortable to start with, once you get on a roll with it, weirdly it becomes strangely empowering.

"When I did it, I got a bit carried away with it. I handed furniture to friends who have similar houses to the house I was living in London, gave various pieces to charity shops and then literally had two skips full of stuff that I was like, 'Well, I'm never going to use that, and I don't think that's going to be any use for anybody else'. "

"My lifestyle has improved dramatically because I haven't got a load of clutter."

Nick Knowles' Big House Clearout starts on Channel 5 on Thursday, August 19.
