The Big Interiors Battle TV show axed from Channel 4

TV show The Big Interiors Battle has been axed from Channel 4.


Hosted by AJ Odudu, The new interior design competition debuted earlier this year, awarding one of the biggest prizes on television.

Based in social impact developer Capital&Centric’s high-end Eyewitness Works development in the heart of Sheffield, the show saw eight talented interior designers receive the keys to an apartment where they were challenged to transform a different room each week.

Following its first series, Channel 4 said the show will not be renewed.

“Every year, Channel 4, like all broadcasters, makes decisions about which shows to rest, return or conclude to ensure we always innovate and offer viewers the best range of programming,” a spokesperson told The Sun.

“Regretfully, The Big Interiors Battle did not resonate with viewers as we would have liked, and there are no current plans for further series.”

A teaser shares: “The contestants’ work will then be judged by Dara Huang, an architect and entrepreneur with clients across the globe ranging from billionaires to the world’s most famous brands. After judging, hopefuls will return to their apartments and use an electronic key-card to learn their fate.

“If the light on their door goes green, they will remain in the running for another week. However, each week one contestant’s door will turn red, indicating they have been locked out of the competition for good.

“At a time when home ownership has never felt more out of reach, The Big Interiors Battle boasts one of the most coveted prizes on television as the winner of the competition will then become the owner of their very own two-bedroom apartment within this historic development in South Yorkshire.”

The Big Interiors Battle will start on Channel 4 on Friday, 21 April at 8PM.


Host AJ Odudu said: “I’m so excited to be involved in a series that has the potential to genuinely change the winner’s life. I’m also looking forward to seeing everyone’s different styles – as a major interiors obsessive myself, I’ll definitely be on the look out to hopefully pick up some nifty DIY tricks from this cast of pros.”

Judge Dara Huang added: “I’m really looking forward to seeing what this cast of competitors bring to the table in the hopes of winning this life-changing prize. I’ll be holding contestants to an extremely high standard as there’s a lot at stake here – they’ll need to employ genuinely innovative design hacks to create something original and impressive!”
