Summary *Coarse Language*Jackie Llewelyn-Bowen has moved Laurence, 11-year-old Cecile and eight-year-old Hermione to a 400-year-old-manor house in Gloucestershire, to escape the rat race and live the rural dream. It's Laurence's job to turn the 20 tatty rooms he now owns into a 21st century designer residence. Laurence wants to make it the ultimate expression of Llewelyn-Bowen design, but first he has to get round the local planning department.His 17th century home is Grade 11 listed, so celebrity designer or not, Laurence's scheme needs the thumbs up before he can start work. Not only does the scheme prove tricky with the authorities it also gives Jackie's budget a bit of a bashing when the estimate comes back with a whopping $80,275 AUD (#50,000) over what she has in the bank. But Jackie has her own financial weak spot, the garden, and while Laurence's interiors are stalled, she gets on with hiring some muscled men to do her bidding in the flowerbeds.Laurence has already had to pay to move his design team, Jackie's office, Jackie's PA and family out to Gloucestershire and is feeling the pressure. Faced with spiralling costs, he starts dreaming up other moneymaking schemes to get him out of their financial hole. What about a haunted tour to visit the resident ghost? All he has to do is find one, and he calls in Johnny Depp's psychic to do just that!PRODUCTION DETAILS:Executive Producer: Ann Booth-Clibborn; Producer/Director Lucy Parkes; Series Producer: Livia Russell(50 mins)
