With plenty of verve and a brand of magic all their own, Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan are transforming the world — one interior at a time. The celebrated home-makeover
duo first made waves when they starred in BBC2's hugely successful series, Million Pound Property Experiment
. In it, they bought, renovated and re-sold seven properties across Britain with price tags ranging from £100,000 to £1.25 million.
Proving that tasteful design isn’t just for the well heeled, Colin and Justin also hosted The Estate
(Channel 5) — a four-part documentary in which they worked with residents of a housing co-op in Glasgow. Working with only a shoestring budget
, Colin and Justin successfully transformed austere interiors into beautiful spaces. And helped boost community and confidence among residents, too.
Colin and Justin also hosted the primetime series Wedding Belles
(Channel 5) in which they became wedding
planners for three ‘lucky’ couples with three very different budgets.
In Colin & Justin’s Home Show
(UKTVStyle), the fearless and flashy duo create the sets for their TV
show — from scratch and on the spot — using furnishings and accessories from nearby stores — right in the middle of Britain’s busiest shopping
They are currently living in Toronto filming the second season of the HGTV hit Colin & Justin’s Home Heist
The twosome’s other TV
credits include How Not to Decorate; 20 Quickest Ways to Make Money, 20 Quickest Ways to Lose Money; Don't Drop the Baby and Ultimate Celebrity Fashion Frock Ups. They hosted BBC1's popular design series, Trading Up, and its overseas spin-off, Trading Up In The Sun, and Housecall
, the BBC1 series where they answered viewer questions and performed interior makeovers in just one hour.
