I couldn’t believe it when I had an email from Andrew Jackson at Raise The Roof Productions saying Kirstie’s Fill Your House for Free had been nominated for a BAFTA under the category ‘Features & Factual Entertainment’! It doesn’t get much better than that!
I was invited to join the rest of the gang & go to the awards ceremony, I obviously jumped at the chance to throw on my glad rags & have a fun filled evening with the rich & famous!
I was whisked up to Glasgow with my fellow Fill Your House for Free experts; Max McMurdo & Lee Baker. The celebrations started on the plane up there, with a glass of wine & a toast at about 11am! Too early?!
We stayed in the same hotel that held the BAFTA’s so we were only a lift ride away, although we had to go outside to walk back in on the red carpet. I did my thang posing for the camera’s & thoroughly enjoyed making a meal out of it while the boys waited for me & held my shawl!
The evening was a great success, we met so many talented people & danced the night away, and although we didn’t win this time I think I can speak for all of us when I say we felt honoured to be nominated for such a prestigious award.
We have also just had the fantastic news that Fill Your House for Free has been recommissioned by Channel 4 for a second series so you haven’t seen the last of us yet! There are way more reusing, salvaging & up-cycling shenanigans to come!
If you would like to take part in the next series get in touch with Raise The Roof Productions with this email address;

I’ve got a good feeling that next year may well be our BAFTA win 😉
