'How Clean Is Your House?' to return for coronavirus special

'How Clean Is Your House?' to return for coronavirus special
Channel 4 announces the one-off return of How Clean Is Your House? due to the outbreak of the coronavirus disease.

Channel 4 has confirmed that How Clean Is Your House? will be making a one-off return after 11 years due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The series, which aired from 2003 to 2009, saw Kim Woodburn and Aggie MacKenzie visit untidy homes and give them an in-depth spring clean while scolding the owners.

As the deadly COVID-19 disease spreads across the globe, an increasing proportion of the population have been forced to stay at home - providing a perfect opportunity for cleaning.

Channel 4 have accordingly ordered a new episode of How Clean Is Your House? to explain how a disease like coronavirus could spread around a typical home and advise on cleaning measures that can help keep households safe.

Announcing the programme, the broadcaster said: "Two  families will have their houses forensically swept for fingerprints to find evidence of what they may be unwittingly spreading around their homes.

"We show how the virus works, how it uses our behaviour to get from outdoors to indoors and – out of all the products we use to clean our homes - which ones could stop it in its tracks, and which ones we shouldn't bother with."

The new programme will be hosted by Dr Javid Abdelmoneim and Dr Lisa Cross rather than original hosts Kim and Aggie, who have reportedly not spoken since a bust-up while performing in a Brighton panto in 2007.
