Help! My House is Falling Down is a Channel 4 show hosted by Sarah Beeny. She and her team of experts travel around Britain looking for homes that need urgent repair. The show dispenses advice on what constitutes a minor or major repair, and follows the work done. The show first aired on 10 August 2010, and saw Sarah Beeny visit six residences around Britain. In episode one, a couple were desperate to save their 250 year old cottage in Northampton from woodworm, erosion, flooding and brick-eating bees. The second episode involved Sarah rescuing an Essex home from sludge, sewage, rats and black mould. Sarah headed to Hull for the third episode in which troublesome tree roots caused massive cracking to internal walls of a beautiful Victorian property. In episode four, a young couple from Brighton battled with disintegrating walls and chronic damp. Fareham played host to episode five, and Sarah attempted to rescue a house that was sinking into the ground. Add to that a failing roof, shifting floors and sewage problems, and this 16 room Georgian house proves to be a very large challenge. In the final episode of the season, Sarah helps a couple in Staines who returned from their honeymoon to find burst pipes and extreme flooding.
