Big Brother star Craig Phillips has landed a new celebrity DIY series on Home.

The reality TV star will tackle DIY dilemmas in the homes of famous faces including Linda Robson, Frankie Dettori, Christine Hamilton and Nancy Sorrell.

Phillips will provide insights into the homes of the celebrities and also offer viewers handy tips for looking after your homes.

Speaking to DS earlier this year, Phillips claimed that the programme was "a cross between Cribs and Through The Keyhole".

UKTV's Jane Rogerson said: "Celebrity DIY With Craig Phillips is a great way to get a sneaky peak of how the famous live, as well as an informative and entertaining way of learning how to tackle those household repairs."

Head of Home Clare Laycock commented: "Craig's the perfect presenter for this series; he's a master builder, a great teacher and has the patience of a saint. He's got a very eclectic mix of celebrity mates from Linda Robson and Christine Hamilton to Frankie Dettori and Nancy Sorrell - all severe DIY dodgers."

Phillips added: "I’m delighted so many of my friends have agreed to take part and allow us exclusive access to their homes across the country. It’s surprising just how many of them are DIY dodgers so it’s great to teach them some DIY. I am sure this will make for excellent viewing for audiences and provide a good mix of practical useful do-it-yourself tips and entertain at the same time. I am pleased to be part of Home’s plans for 2011."

Celebrity DIY With Craig Phillips will air in spring 2011 on Home.
