English presenter Sarah Beeny is well-known for her appearances in property shows such as Property Ladder, Streets Ahead and Britain’s Best Homes. In New Life in the Country, the broadcaster and her husband Graham Swift took on a run-down former dairy farm in Somerset, surrounded by 220 acres of land. The pair aimed to build the modern stately home of their dreams. The show’s second series, which premiered on Channel 4, caused an uproar on social media after the star was criticised by her ‘tasteless’ decision to showcase the renovation of her £500,000 home in the midst of a global pandemic.
During each episode, the property guru and her family had to tackle a new building issue.
The couple’s original plans were set to cost £2million due to the luxurious design they had in mind.
After carefully reconsidering the structure of their model home, the new budget came to £500,000.
Their luxury dream home of five bedrooms and five bathrooms in the Somerset countryside is also set to feature mock busts of their heads.
Discussing their 3-D bust-making afterwards, Graham was heard saying: “Hopefully we’re still going to look posh enough!”
But not everyone was impressed after some flocked to Twitter to have their say after they branded the programme as ill-timed.
@LeightonStoane tweeted: “I have absolutely no bloody interest in Sarah sodding Beeny doing up a mansion house with her family.
“She of course should be allowed to start a new life in the country if she so wishes but I don’t want to hear about it,
“Especially during a pandemic.”
While @oflynnsocial wrote: “A lot of Channel 4 home shows are basically an invitation to cheer very rich people getting luxurious abodes.”
They continued: “Grand Designs, this new Sarah Beeny thing, even some of Kirsty and Phil.
“It’s asking a lot of the audience, esp those struggling even to afford overcrowded accommodation.”
Other viewers had a different opinion of the Channel 4 show and claimed it was “wonderful” to watch.
@JonathanHorswel said: @Don’t you find their artistic design and love of building interesting?”
He continued: “That and the wonderful family life they have with four extremely polite children is just wonderful to watch… in my opinion.”
@SPascoalLima said: “@sarahbeeny really enjoying your #newlifeinthecountry.”
“Your boys and Petal’s babas are truly adorable,” they added.
The Renovate Don’t Relocate star has four sons, Charlie, Rafferty, Billy and Laurie, and their cockapoo Maple.
The first series had several controversies, such as Sarah keeping a wild rabbit that their cat had caught, as a pet.
After her career began back in 2001, it has been estimated Sarah has helped over 2,000 people with property-related issues
Sarah Beeny’s New Life in the Country is on Tuesday nights on Channel 4.
