A shake up of sorts on Seven’s successful Better Home and Gardens with Rob Palmer exiting and these two additions (while I know a press release like this is supposed to be all positive given Rob was with the network for 13 years I would have thought he deserved more than one line). Adam will be a great permanent addition, having been tested on Seven’s House Rules and popping up a few times this year on the show for various projects. A twist to draw in younger audiences? Probably. “After the tennis” the most annoying phrase on TV? Definitely. From the press release:

Demi Harman and Adam Dovile nail new roles on Seven’s Better Homes and Gardens.

Channel Seven today announced Demi Harman and Adam Dovile will join the network’s top rating lifestyle program, Better Homes and Gardens in 2015.

Demi Harman, the effortlessly stylish former Home and Away actress with a penchant for old school glamour, will take on a brand new chapter in her television career as a designer for the lifestyle juggernaut.

Keen to build upon her already extensive experience as a designer for label, DemRock, Demi will share her style secrets with audiences and produce an array of DIY projects ranging from home decorating to designing arts and craft wares.

“I grew up watching Better Homes and Gardens and I was so excited to have Joh film a segment at my home a few years ago. To now say I’m a presenter on the show is beyond joy!” says Demi.

Adam captured the heart of the nation with his affable can-do attitude and big booming laugh whilst competing on Seven’s reality TV hit, House Rules in 2014. His practical and professional trade skills as a qualified carpenter helped him take out the life changing competition with his partner Lisa.

He takes up the reins as the new resident builder, providing a wealth of building expertise he has garnered from operating his own successful construction company for the past seven years.

“This is truly a dream come true. I can’t wait to work with Joh again and the rest of the team. The show has such a loyal following and I’m very proud to be a part of it,” says Adam.

Tara Dennis will continue to focus on room makeovers utilising her interior design skills.

After 13 successful years with Channel Seven, Rob Palmer departs the show.

Hosted by Johanna Griggs, Better Homes and Gardens is Australia’s number one lifestyle program offering Australians inspirational ideas for the home, garden and kitchen. The show accepted its 12th Logie award for Most Popular Lifestyle Program in 2014.

Better Homes and Gardens returns after the tennis, 7pm Fridays on Seven.
