Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One and Mark Linsey, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning, have commissioned two brand new formats from the newly invigorated BBC In-house Entertainment’s development department, headed up by Clare Pizey and overseen by Katie Taylor, Controller of Entertainment and Events.

Let’s Get Ready To Tumble (w/t) is a live, Saturday night competition featuring some of the nation’s best-loved celebrities vaulting, tumbling and flipping head-over-heels to try and win the public’s votes. The complete amateurs will be given a crash course in the basics of gymnastics before teaming up with the highest-flying, gravity-defying gymnasts from across the globe to tackle never-before-seen, new-to-TV disciplines.

With the full backing of British Gymnastics, the trainers who helped take Louis Smith and Beth Tweddle to Olympic glory are ready to turn the nation’s pop stars, actors, newsreaders and chefs into heroes of the high bars and titans of the tumble track.

Katie Taylor, Controller of Entertainment and Events, says: “One thing’s for certain, you can expect the celebs to be pushed out of their comfort zone in what is probably the most physically demanding show of its kind anywhere in the world.”

Let’s Get Ready To Tumble (w/t) was developed by Leon Wilde and BBC In-house Entertainment’s Format Development Team. BBC commissioner is Mirella Breda.

Your Home In Their Hands is a new prime-time transformational makeover series for BBC One, where home owners hand over their front door keys for the ultimate makeover – the only catch being the people doing the makeover are not professionals; the only homes they’ve decorated before are their own.

In each programme, four passionate home decorators think they’ve got what it takes. But when it comes to decorating someone else’s home, the rules are very different and the stakes and emotions run high.

Judging the process is self-made multi-millionaire interior designer and businesswoman Celia Sawyer. She says: “Anyone who comes on the show and thinks interior design is a walk in the park is going to have a real shock. Interior design isn't just about painting a wall pretty colours, it’s about listening to your brief and working hard to fulfil it. That's what I will be looking for.”

The series was developed in-house by Rachel Arnold and Richard Hastings. The BBC commissioner is Mirella Breda.

Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One says: “These two new entertainment series reflect the range and creative ambition of In-house. Your Home in Their Hands will see BBC One indulge viewers’ passion for home decoration, something we’ve not explored on the channel in recent years. And Let’s Get Ready To Tumble will see brave celebrity contestants sign up to the toughest live Saturday night TV challenge yet!”

BBC Worldwide has invested in both series. Joerg Bachmaier EVP, International Production at BBC Worldwide adds: “We are thrilled to invest in both Your Home In Their Hands and Let’s Get Ready To Tumble, two brand-new entertainment formats that we know will appeal to international audiences around the world."
