Charlie Luxton’s mission to find the world’s “most bonkers” homes begins in New York , where he meets an artist living in a converted wheelie bin to avoid the city’s extortionate rent.

Even nuttier is the giant toilet-shaped abode in South Korea, the nuclear missile base turned family home in Kansas and the Australian “merry-go-round” house that rotates on its axis every half hour.

If you’re looking for home decor inspiration, this probably isn’t the programme for you. It is, however, a fascinating – if not slightly baffling – peep through some very peculiar keyholes with the structural quirks of the homes more than matched by the eccentricities of their owners.

Summary

What's the most fascinating and unique home in the world? Is it Mr Toilet's toilet house? A cargo ship that's been cut in half and put on a cliff? Or one of the 18 other contenders in this programme?
