Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen’s Changing Rooms vs Kevin McCloud’s Grand Designs. Which is better?

Both programmes have their strengths. Some closer analysis is needed to determine a winner

Changing Rooms is back on air tonight after 17 years. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and Anna Ryder Richardson have survived from the original line-up, but otherwise it’s had its own makeover. Anna Richardson, who also hosts Naked Attraction, is the new Carol Smillie, Tibby Singh is the new Handy Andy, and Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead are the new design talent.

The programme has also moved from the BBC to Channel 4, home of Kevin “I was sceptical” McCloud. So, naturally, I’m wondering which programme would win in a fight, Changing Rooms or McCloud’s Grand Designs.
