A Norfolk B&B and former convent was transformed on a hit BBC show.

Contestants on the first episode of the new series of Interior Design Masters with Alan Carr saw former Sisters of All Hallows Convent in Ditchingham transformed.

The task involved renovating former nuns bedrooms while characterising their "signature style" making the B&B into "a real destination stay".

Closed in 2018 after 150 years, the site was taken over by Norfolk-based homeless charity, Emmaus, with funds going towards helping homeless people in the area.

Francesca Kletz, a former University of East Anglia student who is competing on the show, said: “I did my MA in Norfolk and love the countryside in that part of the country so was so excited to spend a very sunny week in Norfolk at the convent doing crafts and DIY."

The contestants pulled on inspiration from the sounds of music to an enchanted forest to complete their design.

One contestant even pulled together a selection of vintage Norfolk tea towels to help inspire her design.

The show was screened on Tuesday evening and will be available to watch again on the BBC iPlayer.
