Don’t Move, Improve was a British daytime television series on ITV, which was about helping homeowners realise their dream property might be nearer than they think … they might actually be living in it. It ran for two series from 2005 to 2008.

The series was about showing people how to identify the potential of their home and, with expert help, made them realise they can get what they want by staying put.

Alison Cork and Michael Holmes assessed the homeowners’ present property and suggested two options of how they could renovate their house to meet their family’s needs.

The show then followed the highs and lows of the renovation process. Then, Alison and Michael return to see if the homeowners have followed their advice and discovered the true potential of their home.

In 2006, ITV sold the rights to Discovery Real Time and the channel then showed an entire re-run of the show. In 2008, the show was re-designed and a second series was commissioned and aired. The third series was in talks, but the channel have cancelled it due to funding problems.
