Stacey Dooley’s new TV show This Is My House has been a big hit with viewers - and just the kind of thing we need to keep us amused on the 387439th day of lockdown.

In the Through The Keyhole-type show, which aired on BBC One on Wednesday (24 March), we the audience and a bunch of celebrities are shown a house and its four possible owners.

Four people say they own the house. Three are lying, with only one person actually telling the truth as the official owner. Stacey challenges the celebs to work out who the real owner actually is after a nosy around the property.

And it was a hit, with reactions like: "Watched #thisismyhouse with my Mum last night and we could not stop laughing. The most bonkers show I've watched definitley in a while

"We thought we'd give it a go and ended up enjoying it - lighthearted escapism and #staceydooley was perfect host."

"This is my House on BBC 1 was actually amazing. Loved it. Twists and turns!"

The celebrity panel of Bill Bailey, Judi Love, Emily Atack and Jamali Maddox have to try and match the home to the owner correctly, and for the series opening episode, the truth sleuth crew were joined by guest guesser Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

If the celebs guess the true homeowner correctly, the owner gets a cash prize. If they get it wrong, the homeowner goes home empty handed.

In the first episode four people pretended to be ‘Fern Maxted’. An LA society ‘Fern’, mum of three ‘Fern’, a former PR who says ‘Fern’ is short for Fernando, and a woman who licks a yoghurt stain off the sofa to prove she’s the right owner. Which is really not the direction we saw 2021 going in, truth be told.

This Is My House continues on Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One
