Proving that his flamboyant tastes have been there from the start, the former Changing Rooms star recalls the quirky first home he bought in south London.

Even a first home has to have some novel features... if you’re Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

The TV star had this to say to Zoopla about starting life on the property ladder with wife, Jackie.

“We bought a very elegant little mansion flat in Streatham,” he says. “It had a view of the next door Constitutional Club Bowling Green which meant that after very boozy lunches we could sit at the window as if we were in a grandstand and treat lawn bowling as if it was an Olympic sport.

“But we loved it. It had an entirely panelled-oak lift as if some kind of strange Agatha Christie murder experience was about to take place.”
