  • After the success of the one-off special in April, Stacey Solomon’s Sort Your Life Out is back. With a full series for fans to get stuck into.

    It’s safe to say it’s been a busy few months for Essex lass Stacey Solomon. The singer and television star launched a Primark kids collection in September, before welcoming a baby girl with Joe Swash in October 2021. And November shows no signs of the mum-of-four slowing down either, with her new cleaning show on our screens.

    The programme pairs Stacey and a team of cleaning experts with a family home desperately in need of de-cluttering. And the good news is there’s plenty of easy cleaning hacks that viewers can pick up on whilst watching along at home.

    When is Sort Your Life Out on TV?

    Stacey Solomon’s TV show Sort Your Life Out airs on Thursdays at 8pm on BBC One.

    The series runs throughout November and episodes will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer too.

    Stacey Solomon’s TV show sees the 32-year-old and her cleaning gurus declutter a different family’s house each week. By moving the contents of their house into a warehouse and working together to get rid of unnecessary items. The family’s remaining belongings are then returned to their original home and organised into a tidy and clutter-free state.

    Teasing her new series, Stacey Solomon said: “There’s always that one room or cupboard I can’t face sorting out at home, but once I’ve done it there’s nothing more satisfying. One cupboard at a time, we’ll be helping families declutter their homes and get organised in a way that works for them.

    “I’ll be sharing my ultimate tidying and upcycling tips, from Lazy Susans to tension rods, there’ll be lots of great ideas to give viewers the confidence to finally tackle that cupboard!”

    Her show follows on from the success of Stacey’s debut book – Tap to Tidy: Organising, Crafting & Creating Happiness in a Messy World. It details her Instagram cleaning hacks that are similarly popularised by influencer and Stacey’s friend Mrs Hinch.

    How many episodes of Stacey Solomon’s Sort Your Life Out?

    There are 6 episodes of Sort Your Life Out to tune into this November.

    Stacey’s show first aired as a one-off special on Easter Monday this year. But following its success, a new series was commissioned for Autumn 2021.

    BBC Commissioning Editor Emily Smith confirmed its return in July:

    “After filming a successful pilot last year, we’re so excited for this series with Stacey and her team,” she said. “It’s amazing what they can do to turn homes around without having to spend loads.”

    The former Loose Women star teased what viewers can expect from the upcoming episodes:

    “People are holding on to things for so many reasons that actually parallel different moments in your own life that you can relate to,” Stacey adds. “We did a show with a single mum who split up with her husband. Looks after her daughters. And there was so much she was holding on to. Just because she preferred who she was when she was in a relationship.”

    Who are the Sort Your Life Out experts?

    Those who watched the show back in April will be pleased to see the return of the same home improvement experts:

    • Robert Bent: Carpenter and upcycler Robert is on hand to upholster and breath new life into old furniture and sentimental items on the show. He runs his own company REBB Carpentry and is based in South-East England.
    • Iwan Carrington: Iwan is no stranger to screens – with viewers of Channel 4’s Steph’s Packed Lunch no doubt recognising him as the show’s bargain hunter and presenter. He’s also a cleaning mastermind who shares weekly cleaning video tips with his 69,000 subscribers on his Youtube channel Mr Carrington.
    • Dilly Carter: She’s the professional organiser who persuades contestants to ditch the clutter for a tidier mind and life. Outside of the show Dilly runs her own home styling service Declutter Dollies tackling clients’ homes. She’s also the author of Create Space – a guide to organising your home that also delves into the link between mental wellbeing and decluttering.

    It seems Stacey is certainly pleased to have them on board to help:

    “I’m not qualified. I can give a really good cuddle. But outside of that there does need to be professionals that step in and say ‘Hi, we think you need a bit more back-up than that’. And that is what they do,” she told the Glasgow Times.
