Now, beloved singer-turned-actress, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, is returning to our screens as the host of the revamped renovation show Changing Rooms.
“When Network Ten called to ask if I would be interested in hosting a show called ‘Changing Rooms’. I said ‘You had me at Changing Rooms,’" Bassingthwaighte says. “I absolutely love everything to do with design and I am forever quite literally changing every room in my house! It’s the perfect fit and I am incredibly excited.”
Changing Rooms will follow creative Australian couples who swap houses with their family, friends, and neighbours. Guided by experienced designers, each couple will decorate the most used rooms in each other's homes before debuting their alterations in the final reveal at the end of the season.
The series is based on the Nine Network's original version which ran for eight seasons from 1998 to 2005.
"Natalie is the perfect choice to host Changing Rooms. She is fun, authentic, and engaging, and that is what has made her so popular with Australian television audiences for many years," executive producer for Changing Rooms, Sarah Thornton says. "We are thrilled to see her bring a contemporary twist to the original and best home renovation show."
Changing Rooms will premiere in 2019 on TEN and WIN Network.
