Horncastle family feature on BBC One’s Sort Your Life Out with Stacey Solomon





A Horncastle mum and her daughters have been helped by Stacey Solomon to sort their life out.

Single mum Rachel Yates and her daughters Amelia, 15, and Madeline, 11, were featured on the BBC One show Stacey Solomon’s Sort Your Life Out last night (Tuesday, March 20).

In the programme, Stacey and her gang, organiser Dilly, carpenter Rob and cleaner Iwan, challenged the family to sort their life out in seven days with a mammoth declutter.

Rachel works full time while also making and designing intricate dance costumes in her very limited free evenings, and both girls dance competitively - it’s a busy household. The trio wanted to revitalise their home, which is full of clutter, including some of their dad Darren’s old stuff, which hasn’t been shifted since he and Rachel divorced six years ago.

The programme saw Rachel become overwhelmed when she saw how much they had laid out in a giant aircraft hangar, which featured 103 old planks of wood, 277 medals from dancing competitions and 829 pieces of fabric from Rachel’s side job making and repairing dresses.

Ex-husband Darren was even invited to the aircraft hanger to help sort through the items he left in the family home.

At the house, carpenter Rob breathed new life into the home, with some ingenious carpentry creating an amazing dance studio for the girls, Iwan gave the home a supersize spring clean, with lots of useful tips along the way; and Dilly reorganised the bedrooms and the spare room to give Rachel a sewing room of dreams.

The programme can still be viewed on BBC iPlayer.
