We’ve probably all lived in some dodgy rented places in our lives. So there’ll be an added frisson when watching this new life-swap format, which asks landlords to live in their tenants’ places, and on their budgets to boot.

Who would set themselves up for such a pasting, you might wonder. Essex-based Marc, 36, and Peter, 66, step into the world of their tenant Linda, also 66, and working three jobs to pay the rent. Meanwhile, in Milton Keynes, property mogul Paul tries a house share.

With 11 million people renting in this country, most of them from private landlords, the audience for this series seems built in.
