George Clarke's Flipping Fast viewers left wincing over couple's VERY risky kitchen makeover | The Sun
GEORGE Clarke's Flipping Fast fans were left wincing over a couple's VERY risky kitchen makeover during last night's show.
The brand new Channel 4 show hit our screens last month.
The programme – presented by property experts George and Scarlette and Stuart Douglas – sees six teams of wanna-be entrepreneurs battle it out to make the most profit.
They are given a whopping £100,000 and have a year to sell as many properties as possible – and the winning team gets to keep the money.
One couple taking part is Gordon and Pamela from Norfolk.
During last night's episode they got to work with their huge renovation project, in which they spent a quarter of their £8,000 budget on the cooking space.

As Pamela tried to count up all the boxes in the front room, she confessed: "I actually purchased this kitchen way before we purchased the house.
"Probably not a good move…
"Looking at the boxes, there looks rather a lot here. I just hope it all fits!"
Viewers were left baffled by her choice.
One said on Twitter: "Why would you buy a kitchen without measuring it? #flippingfast."

A second tweeted: "Wow, buying a kitchen hoping it will fit into a space? I recently bought an integrated appliance and even that gave me the sweats. I measured everything meticulously because you can go wrong very easily #flippingfast."
A third chimed in: "Just ordering my kitchen online. I don’t actually own a house yet, but apparently that’s the way round you do it these days? #flippingfast."
A fourth questioned: "Why wouldn't you just repaint that kitchen, Pamela? #FlippingFast."
It comes after George was left shocked when a contestant brroke down in tears last week.
Mum-of-three Zoe, from Crawley, West Sussex, bought a two-bedroom house in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
She managed to get £6,000 knocked off the asking price and secured it for £74,000.
After driving up to the property, she found water everywhere because a pipe had leaked.
Fighting back the tears, Zoe said: "I’m not close enough for things like this to go wrong, especially a week before the house is meant to go on the market.
“Ultimately, it’s just too far from home.
"It takes me half the day to get up here and it’s exhausting.”
Despite the bad luck, the budding entrepreneur was left convinced that it'll be able to sell quickly.
