Kirstie attempts to help Louise from Essex, whose first-time flat purchase has cost her so much that she's moved back in with her parents whilst renting out the flat's only habitable bedroom to cover her mortgage. She also attempts to help Ferne and Peter who have just moved out of their parents' homes into their own place.
Kirstie attempts to transform Emma and Darren's home in Worcester into a colourful family home. She also attempts to help Tynemouth social worker Angela Stephenson who has devoted everything to her children and left herself with a bedroom that's falling apart.
