Now she’s using her talents to help those in need of fresh start in a new six-part home improvement series, Sort Your Life Out, airing on BBC One at 8pm on Thursday, which sees ordinary families declutter their lives.  

Home organiser Dilly Carter, carpenter and up-cycler Robert Bent and cleaning expert Iwan Carrington also feature on the show to help families stripping their homes bare and putting everything they own in a giant warehouse.

They were then tasked with sorting through it all, encouraged to dispose of most of the possessions, leading to tension, emotion and tears.   

However for some families, tensions arise over sentimental items including 1,000 toys, while others face a difficult process throwing out over nearly 400 pieces of tupperware.

Alongside organiser Dilly, carpenter Rob and cleaner Iwan, Stacey challenged the Patel family, from London, to embark on a mammoth declutter and sort their life out in just seven days. 

After asking the family to let go of half their possessions, mother Bijal alongside her husband Darshan and their two children stripped every single item they owned into boxes. 

The family’s possessions included 387 bits of tupperware, 1,011 bangles and over 2,000 toys – with the family shocked all their things were ever able to fit into their home in the first place. 

Both Bijal and Darshan struggled to let go of some of their treasured items, but eventually managed to divided their possessions into piles to recycle, donate or sell.

Meanwhile full-time mother Cherelle and her husband Tony were spending all their time tidying up their four young children’s toys (Pictured before: one of the children’s bedrooms cluttered with hoards of toys and clothes)

At the house, carpenter Rob gave the house a new lease of life with some ingenious under stairs storage and hidden kitchen drawers while Iwan gave the home a supersize spring clean. 

Meanwhile the Dowling family, from Manchester, also appeared on the show as they desperately tried to tidy up after their children. 

Full time mother Cherelle and courier Tony said they felt they were spending all their time cleaning up their four young children’s toys.

Meanwhile they confessed they were also desperately searching for a lost engagement ring somewhere in the house. 

The family’s possessions were laid out in a giant warehouse including 34 odd kids’ shoes, 50 new born baby hats and over 1,000 toys (Pictured before: their living room brimming with children’s toys before the makeover)

With the house all packed up, the family’s possessions were laid out in a giant warehouse including 34 odd kids’ shoes, 50 new born baby hats and over 1,000 toys. 

Tensions rose over the quality of children’s toys the couple had, and the pair had to learn to work together to sort through their items and decide what would be thrown away.

Meanwhile at their home, Rob breathed new life into the space by radically reconfiguring the bedrooms to create maximum space for all four children.

Meanwhile he also showed viewers how an old wardrobe can be repurposed three different ways.
