It's been a long time since we've had a new series of 'Room to Improve' so to keep the masses at bay, RTÉ aired 'Celebrity Home of the Year' last night for our judging pleasure.

The annual one-hour special saw 'Home of the Year' judging panel architect Hugh Wallace and award-winning interior designer Deirdre Whelan returning and introduced award-winning architect Peter Crowley.

They took a snoop around the homes of five well-known Irish faces last night: artist Robert Ballagh, broadcaster and entrepreneur Ramona Nicholas, writer John Boyne, meteorologist Jean Byrne and singer-songwriter, Eleanor McEvoy.

Needless to say, opinions were divided between the panel, particularly between Hugh and Peter, and of course those watching at home also had plenty to say.


Ultimately, it was John Boyne's home that reigned supreme.
