The Next Big Thing

Judge alongside Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen on ITV’s flagship daytime show, This Morning, as they launched a search for ‘The Next Big Thing’ in interior design

Viewers were invited to submit a video showcasing their style and interior design of an area recently worked on in their own home.

Laurence said, “We all know that in Britain our homes are our castles. I’m looking for homes that really do look like castles on the inside. This Morning’s Next Big Thing is on a quest to find the next me – a viewer who’s sense of flair and style in design is very much all their own.”

Karl Newton, Executive Producer of This Morning said: “This a very exciting chance for one of our talented viewers to showcase their natural design talent and creative flair to millions. Our esteemed panel of judges led by Laurence couldn’t be better placed to select the winner as they’re all at the top of their game. The Next Big Thing is a very ambitious project, which could potentially change the life of a This Morning viewer.”

The final winner was Ben Hillman who went on to become a successful interior designer and TV presenter for Channel 4’s A Place in the Sun.
