UK pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned three lifestyle series to air this summer, bringing fashion presenter Gok Wan and consumer affairs expert Harry Wallop (pictured) to the screen.

Remarkable Television is bringing presenter Gok Wan back to Channel 4 with a new series called¬†Gok’s Summer Catwalk Live. Helping women solve their summer holiday fashion dilemmas, Wan will advise them on everything they need to know in his first live show.

Katie Piper will also be on hand to offer tips on holiday beauty, in the 3 x one-hour series launching in the summer.

Meanwhile, in Something for Nothing, journalist and consumer guru Harry Wallop will show viewers how to get free goods and services, including free meals and designer clothes.  The 2 x one-hour episodes are produced by RDF Television and will air this summer.

True North Productions has been tapped to make Compare Your Life, a 6 x one-hour series that sees former Confused.com CEO Carlton Hood helping families decide whether to take on their own business. Hood takes a different family each week and offers them three options in locations in the country or abroad, giving them the choice to take the plunge.

In addition, the pubcaster has recommissioned Red House to make another season of Sarah Beeny’s Double Your House for Half the Money.

The second season, made up of 10 hour-long episodes, is set to air later this year, and follows Beeny as she shows how to double the size of your house without breaking the bank.
