Stacey Solomon, the renowned tidying expert extraordinaire, returns with a brand new episode of “Sort Your Life Out” on BBC One. In the Series 4 four premiere, Stacey has assembled a skilled team of organising experts including Dilly Carter, Rob Bent, and Iwan Carrington. Together, they aim to help one family each week declutter their home and achieve a life-changing transformation through budget-friendly makeovers and extensive spring cleaning.

In Episode 1, the Bufton Family from Redhill, Surrey takes centre stage. The show examines the issue faced by many families – living amidst an overwhelming amount of possessions that cause stress and clutter. Stacey challenges the Bufton Family to sort their life out in just seven days, kickstarting the process with an ambitious decluttering exercise.

The family is encouraged to let go of half their possessions in order to create space for a beautifully reorganised home. Under Stacey’s guidance, every single item is carefully packed away into boxes, revealing just how much unused space lies beneath all their belongings.

The narrative shifts focus to explore the story behind the cluttered home. Single father Craig has been raising his two young daughters Merywen (6) and Wren (4) since his wife Lois tragically passed away from cancer four years ago. Now supported by Lois’ close family members, Craig feels it is finally time to tackle the clutter head-on and make positive changes for his daughters’ sake.

Packing up their house becomes an emotional process as memories resurface with each treasured possession encountered. Craig receives support from his mother-in-law Soo and sister-in-law Cass as they navigate through decisions together. Amidst sorting through items during this poignant journey, it is revealed that Lois had written a beautiful children’s book for her beloved daughters before she passed away. Additionally, Craig confesses that he had been seeking solace in hobbies and impulse purchases to fill the void left by his wife’s absence.

Meanwhile, carpenter Rob brings new life to the house with his ingenious carpentry skills, creating a home office for Craig and even crafting a secret door leading to a magical reading room inspired by Lois’ love of books. Iwan takes charge of giving the house a thorough spring clean, offering useful tips along the way. Dilly reorganises all the storage spaces, optimising functionality in the newly decluttered environment.

All remaining possessions are packed away as only the most essential and cherished items are kept. Stacey and her team then stylishly unpack everything back into their places, ready for the long-awaited reveal to the Bufton Family.

Viewers can expect an emotional journey as this episode tackles not just physical clutter but also explores grief, memories, and personal growth. Through decluttering, organising, and upcycling efforts alone, “Sort Your Life Out” aims to transform this family’s home into a rejuvenating space.
