Twofour has sold two documentaries, My Hoarder Mum & Me and Table Dancing Diaries, to UKTV lifestyle channel Really.

My Hoarder Mum & Me, a one-hour special for BBC1, sees TV presenter Jasmine Harman attempting to help her mother, Vasoulla, overcome her hoarding. The original viewing aired to more than 3.4 million viewers on BBC1 and led to the commission of an hour-long special, Britain’s Biggest Hoarders, and an upcoming three-part series.

Table Dancing Diaries is also a one-hour special for BBC3, and the film follows young females working at Secrets, a London chain of pole dancing clubs. The doc steps away from the lights and the make-up and shows the lives of the girls and the “girls that run the girls.”

The deals were brokered by Twofour senior sales executive Holly Hodges and UKTV’s acquisitions executive Nicki McDermott.

“Both productions offer a unique insight into little-known worlds,” said Anthony Appell, head of Twofour Rights.
