DIY SOS is a programme where a team of builders and a designer would go to a well deserved household where they would renovate a room (and in later series often a whole house). The team would visit those who had a serious issue with their house, either due to DIY going wrong, previous shoddy builders or more often than not due to an illness preventing them for undertaking the work themselves.

The show was originally presented by Lowri Turner and Nick Knowles, Nick would be based at the big main project while Lowri would be at a smaller one, often this was chosen by viewers the previous week.The show made stars of the builders, in particular the electrician Billy who became know for not always getting it right and blowing a circuit or similar.
