CHANGING ROOMS fans have branded the new series as “bland” and complaints are pouring in about the shows new format.
Changing Rooms originally ran from 1996-2004 on Channel 4 and went off air for 17 years before being rebooted with the same format in 2021.
The show’s return was a success and Chaning Rooms is back for another season but this time – without co-host Anna Richardson.
TV host, Anna Richardson previously presented the show back in 2021.
But since the programme has made a return this year, there’s no sign of Anna or any other host in the new series.
Anna now presents the raunchy reality TV dating gameshow, Naked Attraction, and according to reports, her schedule was too demanding to return to Changing Rooms.
