Radio Times review of Location Location Location says the show has past it’s best article here
It’s always been a shocking program to watch if you have a realistic budget of 3X minimum wage. (I’ll let you do the maths on that but you are starting to find houses almost at this level if you don’t mind a small terrace in parts of Manchester.)
For people in the real world not on glamourous wages it’s really always been property porn.
Not as bad as the programs like Grand Designs (although having architectural merit and the most interesting people sometimes helps make that show amazing) or Escape to the country which often has exotic budgets.
I love big houses, if I could make a career out of going and viewing them I would. Hmm maybe I should work on that idea a bit!
