Laurence has designs on you; PICK OF THE BOX.
Home Front (BBC 2, 8.00pm)
A WELCOME return to Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and his flouncy costumes - I mean clothes. Changing Rooms hasn't been the same without his grand designs.
Tonight in this Gardeners' World meets Changing Room series Laurence and Diarmuid Gavin come to the rescue of a couple from South London who want their bedroom spiced up and their garden revamped.
Laurence goes to work and puts French windows in the bedroom, opening inwards against an iron balustrade for a better view over the garden.
He gets a specially-commissioned silk curtain trimmed with crystal, as well as painting a work of art himself.
In the garden, Diarmuid does his usual and plumps for a minimalist white garden with decking and giant white rocks held in steel gabbions.
He also converts an old air-raid shelter into an outdoor chill-room with a glass ceiling. Perfect for two designers with their heads way up in the clouds.
The Sins (BBC 1, 9.10pm)
PETE POSTLETHWAITE, alias old lag Len Green, the best getaway driver in the business, starts his first day as an undertaker.
After last week's pride, this week the sin he has to fight is covetousness. In his bid to go straight, he sets eyes on the gorgeous hearse owned by a rival funeral firm.
He becomes completely obsessed with obtaining the car, almost to the point where he forgets his family at home, in particular his daughter Hope who is pregnant and desperate to hear her boyfriend tell her he loves her. This series is not to be missed.
