The nation's favourite architect will be back on our screens sooner than we had hoped with a brand new TV show called Dermot Bannon’s Superhomes.

The news was announced at RTE's autumn season launch today. It will see Dermot head stateside for a two-part series to check out some of America's superhomes. We're imagining an Irish version of Cribs, essentially.

No doubt he will bring back plenty of ideas for the next season of Room to Improve, which had its most successful season yet earlier this year, and will also have new celebrity clients in the upcoming season as Daniel and Majella O’Donnell hand their house over to Dermot.

No word yet on the air date for either but we will keep you posted.
