"The figure of €350,000 was a little bit of a sales pitch to my wife"

Dermot Bannon returned to our screens on Sunday night with the first episode of his highly anticipated two-part show Room to Improve: Dermot's Home - and it did not disappoint!

For a man who is usually so "on it", the window-loving designer shocked viewers with his indecisiveness and  miscalculation of the budget by half:

Speaking on Today FM's Dermot and Dave, Bannon reveals his budget to be a bit of a white lie; "the figure of €350,000 was a little bit of a sales pitch to my wife".

But he does admit that his uncertainties were very real, saying; "I had to find out what I liked and I did that in the middle of the programme":

"The privacy is unbelievable" he added, which he says "was on of the reasons we bought it because you're in the city centre and you cannot see another window and nobody can see you when you're in the back garden"

When asked why he didn't add the "couple dynamic" by featuring his wife Louise, Dermot says: "Louise and the kids have always been incredibly private...and that's what's kind of kept us kinda sane. Coz at home, we're just a regular family".

We reckon ratings for part 2 of the project will be through the roof. He's such a tease:
