Britain’s Weirdest Council Houses review: are these homes hellish nightmares or artistic masterpieces?

11 February 2016 11:20 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From football-themed, Renaissance-inspired artwork to a flat made to look a transatlantic liner, it’s incredible what lies behind closed doors

Robert lives on a drab estate in Brighton in a drab council house. On the outside. Nothing drab about the interior, it’s one of Britain’s Weirdest Council Houses (Channel 4). A Renaissance palace, with great Italian artworks wherever you look. Michelangelo, Leonardo, Botticelli – all painted in the 21st century, by Robert, who has never been to Italy in his life. He is a painter, but of the decorator variety, and only tried his hand at great art after picking up a book on the Renaissance at a car boot sale in Lewes.

The bathroom – would that be the cistern chapel, Robert? – has a water theme. The spare room has a twist, a 21st-century one; so Leonardo’s Salvator Mundi is José Mourinho and Wayne Rooney becomes Francisco »
