"We witnessed the very beginnings of the Graven Hill site in the first series of The Street and it was an honour to spend time alongside our 10 plucky guinea pigs," said Kevin.

"Now we're back to follow more projects as Britain's largest self-build community really gets going."

He continued: "I'm also excited to be able to look at other pilot projects such as Glasgow in this series.

"Self-build and custom-build are here to stay and at this rate they're going to make a big contribution to Britain’s housing supply."

Kevin began hosting the popular Channel 4 building project series, Grand Designs in 1999.
