George Clarke obviously knew what he wanted to do from a very young age – and has proved it with a super-cute throwback childhood picture.
The presenter and architect, who's currently fronting George Clarke’s National Trust Unlocked, posted a picture to his Instagram page showing him sitting in his grandparents' garden while drawing their house.
He wrote: "Me sketching my Nanna + Grandpa’s house in Sunderland (as well as many other things and bit of Crayola colouring in!) when I was around 7 years old. I was obsessed with drawing and buildings from such a young age. For me architecture isn’t a job...it’s a way of life and I love it. #architecture #drawing #beauty."
His fans loved the picture and shared their enthusiasm on his feed, with one writing: "That’s so lovely, it was clearly your destiny and what an incredible job you do!
One said: "It's a wonderful gift to earn your living doing something you love", and another wrote: "Living the dream. An inspiration. ⭐️"
George shot to fame on hit programmes like The Restoration Man and George Clarke's Amazing Spaces.
His new National Trust programme is another delight; the six-part series, which began on Sunday 23rd August (9pm, Channel 4), sees George discover some of the UK’s most impressive historic and extraordinary homes.
He looks at the fascinating architecture, design and stories behind each magnificent estate, whilst taking walks around the gardens and countryside, soaking up the surrounding scenery with his four-legged friend, Loki the Siberian husky. We love it already.
