We can't see the nation's love for Room to Improve waning anytime soon, but fans of the show will be delighted to hear they are planning on mixing things up a bit in the next season with a celebrity couple, no less.
Who could Ireland possibly love more than good old Dermo? Why Daniel and Majella of course.
Yep, Daniel and Majella O'Donnell have offered up their Donegal home to Room to Improve. According to The Sunday World, Majella approached Bannon at a design show earlier in the year. Daniel said, "We were talking about doing some renovations to make it work a bit better for us. Majella was at a homes exhibition and Dermot was there so she approached him for some advice.
"She asked him if he'd come to Donegal to see the house, and Dermot then asked if we'd do the show. We weren't thinking about doing that show, but now we're doing it it's a much bigger job than we could have done ourselves. It's exciting because the house is going to be changed."
Dermot said, "Daniel and Majella live on the wild rugged Atlantic coastline within a breathtaking landscape of lush green carpet broken by a dramatic rockscape.
"The house is a typical generic house type that you'll find all over Ireland and that can look alien in their setting and although the house is big, there was always something missing - a soul.
"The aim of the project is to reach out and become embedded in the landscape, but more importantly, finally create a home, a refuge that shrinks and wraps around them like a blanket from their hectic lives outside of its walls.
"This project shows that having all the space you need sometimes is just not enough."
It will be next year however before we get to see this extra special episode of Room to Improve, with the renovation project yet to begin: "They are hoping to start the work next month and they say it'll be finished by Christmas but I think they'll need to go to Lourdes because that'll take a miracle," said Daniel.
"We gave Dermot a budget and they are only getting the quotes in now. He came back with the budget spent to the last penny, so no doubt when we have our next meeting there will be drama. There has already been a wee bit of drama which you will eventually see on the show," he said.
Dermot v Daniel is a go!
