Phil Spencer: Secret Agent

8:00pm Friday, July 20 on C4

Phil Spencer returns, continuing his efforts to give Britain’s troublesome property market a shake up. This time he goes undercover in Scotland, trying to get offers on two houses not far from Glasgow’s busy city centre. But one house is a 50s throwback, the other an 80s revival, and neither is what the buyers of Glasgow’s swanky suburbs want in a family home. Phil and the owners feel the pressure with just one week to sell these pricey properties at an open day.

Can he clean up his act to get his house sold? And further out in the former mill town of Yeadon, Caroline’s struggling to sell a bungalow that’s stuck in the past.
