Self-confessed collector and miniatures enthusiast Sandi Toksvig (QI, The Great British Bake Off) hosts this amateur crafters competition where 10 contestants from across Britain are challenged with renovating an entire derelict mansion into a fantasy home. The catch – it’s all miniature. Over eight episodes, the crafters work in teams to tackle the house room by room, with each room having to be fully furnished in a different and stunning interior design theme. Whether it be tiny tables, toilets, curtains or food, all of the contents made for the house must be shrunk down to a twelfth of their usual size.
