A brand new property competition series hosted by George Clarke is coming to Channel 4.
Titled George Clarke’s Flipping Fast, the new format will follow six people from across the UK who think they have what it takes to make the big time as property entrepreneurs, offering them a truly life changing chance to start their own property business.
The show will be hosted by George Clarke (Amazing Spaces, Remarkable Renovations) alongside expert property developers, siblings Scarlette and Stuart Douglas.
Channel 4 explain: “Flipping Fast will follow six teams from across the UK who think they have what it takes to make the big time as property entrepreneurs, offering them a truly life changing chance to start their own property business.
“The budding developers will each be given a whopping £100,000 investment to kickstart their business, competing against each other to see who can make the most profit from property in just 12 months.
“The competitors will receive support and advice from George, Scarlette and Stuart, but they will only get the chance to find out how their competitors are doing when each property listing goes live. At the end of the process, the most successful property flipper will be revealed.
“In addition to keeping their profits, the winner gets a cash prize of the full £100,000 investment given to them at the beginning of the process.”
George Clarke’s Flipping Fast will start on Channel 4 on Wednesday, 25 May at 9PM.
George Clarke said: “I’m really excited to be working with Scarlette and Stuart on Flipping Fast to help guide our competitors through the emotional rollercoaster of property developing. This will be a high stakes contest like no other with a life changing prize for the most successful developers.”
Scarlette Douglas added: “Stuart and I have been really looking forward to this series where we’ll get to offer straight talking advice to budding property entrepreneurs. We don’t always agree on the methods, but when it comes to achieving the best results, we’re on the same page.”
Stuart Douglas added: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with George to front this new prime time property contest. It promises to have plenty of tips and insights for viewers at home thinking of getting into the property game.”
