A House Rules Judge Has Been Axed For A Controversial Star

Remember renovation TV before the days of The Block?

When renovating didn’t involve an entire series and the quirkier and crazier the design, the better?

Specifically, remember that English show - Changing Rooms?


Yes, this really was one of the rooms!

If the over-the-top interiors, themed decor and even crazier designers are coming back to you, then you may remember this guy...

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.


Aka, he of the crazy suit...

Well prepare to see more of him, with news the theatrical designer is returning to our screens this year for House Rules.

Replacing axed judge Joe Snell, Llewelyn-Bowen says he expects his appearance on the show will divide viewers.

“If the new Renaissance is going to start anywhere, I’m beginning to think it should be Australia,” he told the Herald Sun.


Same suit?!

“My passion is to really be an aesthetic midwife now for the Australian domestic interior and say, ‘Come on guys, let’s really let rip. Let’s go further than you’ve ever gone before … turn your interiors into a background for sex, for rock ’n’ roll, for chocolate, for all of the things that really rock your world’.”

Comparing himself to the likes of Simon Cowell and Gordon Ramsay he admits he tells people off in a “rather worrying way”.

How Australia will take that is yet to be seen!
