Amanda Worne, her husband Vic and their four children saw their new house for the first time yesterday (Thursday, May 18).

On a heart-warming and highly emotional day, the BBC cameras captured disabled Amanda fighting back tears to thank the 250 plus tradespeople and suppliers who have given up their time to take part in the big build.

Presenter Nick Knowles and the DIY SOS team, who have been down in Yapton filming since last week, praised all the plumbers, electricians, builders, gardeners, cleaners, decorators and volunteers who he said have enabled Amanda to ‘become a mum again’.

Many of them haven’t seen the finished home and will have to wait until the show is aired on the BBC, likely to be next year.
