In Somerset, Helen and her 18-year-old son, college student Jack, are living in eight years worth of hoarded clutter, making it impossible to even use the kitchen. In Blackburn, mum Yvonne is hoarding all the toys, videos and clothes from her children's childhood, making it impossible for her youngest daughter to play. Psychotherapist Stelios Kiosses is convinced that you can't just empty a hoarder's home without dealing with the psychological reasons, so he puts Helen, Jack and Yvonne on his six-week treatment plan before sending in a team of professional de-clutterers.
