The successful hit documentary series The Hoarder Next Door, returns to Channel 4 with a Christmas Special.

 

57 year old Pauline is a huge fan of Christmas and boasts a vast collection of inaccessible Christmas decorations, 100s of tins and freezers packed with out of date food and even seven  Christmas trees buried somewhere among her clutter . But this year, she is determined to celebrate Christmas in her house with her grandchildren for the very first time. 

 

Helping Pauline with her dream is Psychotherapist Stelios Kiosses, who has 16 years of experience working with hoarders.   Stelios Kiosses offers a groundbreaking approach in tackling compulsive hoarding with a 6 week intensive therapy course.  Together with straight talking Declutter Divas, Zoe Steel and Allyson Pritchard, Stelios helps Pauline tackle her hoards and reclaim her home. 

 

The Christmas Special will also feature antiques dealer Greg whose growing collection of ‘repair’ projects has taken over girlfriend Judith’s house.  Judith has given Greg an ultimatum – him or the hoard – will he be able to make the change with help from Stelios and the de-clutterers? 

 

The Series Producer is Ben Steele.  Executive Producer for Twenty Twenty is Alannah Richardson. Channel 4 commissioner is Nick Hornby.
