Episode 1: East Midlands

Summary

Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer are house-hunting in the East Midlands with two couples at different stages in life. Lloyd and Karina are buying their first home together. They prefer the rural feel of the villages around Northampton but want to be close to Lloyd's parents - while also being near transport links for London. Helen and Richard fell in love late in life. They are desperate to get out of rented accommodation - but as Kirstie soon realises, it's all about the kitchen for former chef Richard

Review

Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer return, socially distanced, for the 35th series of their property-hunting show. Though the couple are a respectful two metres apart throughout, it’s no barrier to the mutual joshing and mickey-taking that’s become so much a part of their partnership.

In many ways it hardly matters who the hopefuls are – in this case two nice couples, Karina and Lloyd, who met eight years ago at university and who have saved a healthy deposit after living with their parents, and care-home managers Helen and Richard, who want a “forever home”.

That’s because Location runs on well-oiled wheels. Kirstie and Phil show them properties, in this case in the East Midlands, and the couples either coo or they don’t.

Helen and Richard want a big kitchen, while Karina and Lloyd are looking for a village life.
