Alan Carr is to be the new presenter on BBC Two contest show Interior Design Masters.

The first series, which was hosted by Fearne Cotton, aired in August 2019. The format sees teams of budding designers confronted with a commercial space to transform each week as they attempt to impress the judges ranging from shops to offices, show homes and restaurants.

The BBC confirms: "The second series of the hit show will be hosted by TV presenter and comedian Alan Carr, who will be joined by former Editor-in-Chief of ELLE Decoration magazine, Michelle Ogundehin. Michelle reprises her role as head judge and will enlist the help of design gurus and industry experts as specialist guest judges each week.

"The eight-part series will see ten talented, up and coming designers tackle a range of design challenges and compete to win a life-changing design contract with a prestigious commercial client."

Alan Carr says: "I just can't wait to get started on this. I'm such a huge fan of interior design and I'm chomping at the bit to see what these wonderfully creative people have in store for us."

Michelle Ogundehin comments: "I'm thrilled to be back for a second series to discover even more untapped design talent for Interior Design Masters. We had so many brilliant and exciting designs and designers on Series 1 that I can't wait to get going and see what the next cohort has to offer!"

Donna Clark from producers DSP says: "We're absolutely thrilled to be welcoming the wonderful Alan Carr to the Interior Design Masters fold. His wit and enthusiasm will definitely bring a dose of sparkle to the series and we can't wait to see him take the helm."

Clare Mottershead from the BBC adds: "Interior Design Masters proved a real treat for our audiences last year and we're delighted to be embarking on Series 2 with another real treat, Alan Carr, on the team. We're looking forward to plenty of inspirational and ambitious interiors."
