Originally running on BBC Two from 1996 to 2004 and attracting 10 million viewers, Changing Rooms was a huge hit which influenced our homes.
It was a huge hit that was reintroduced to our screens after 17 years.
However, the show was abandoned by a third of its viewers after just three episodes.
A television source told The Mirror: “Channel 4 will be wondering what has gone wrong. A lot was put into it but it doesn’t seem to have caught on.”
“It won’t be missed.”
Original Changing Rooms design guru Laurence Lllewellyn-Bowen once again helped guide well meaning homeowners as they made over a neighbour’s room.
LLB was joined by Anna Richardson, 50, who helms C4’s raunchy dating show Naked Attraction. Carol Smillie’s original host was replaced by Richardson.
New designers Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead, as well as Tibby Singh, a carpenter, are part of the new lineup.
Its bizarre designs were immediately mocked. In the first episode, blonde wigs were hung from a wall at a Swansea home in South Wales.
Some viewers said the show was like watching paint dry. One branded it “horrific” and another called it “one of the worst things I’ve ever seen”.
A reviewer in the Guardian wrote that the designs were so awful they could scar viewers for life.
Daily Star reached out to Channel 4 to get a comment.
A reboot of Changing Rooms was a great idea with 90s nostalgia at an all-time high and a younger audience interested in interior design.

Carol Smilie was the original host and made clear her feelings when the new series debuted.
Carol, 59, took her Twitter account to criticize the decision to remove her from the DIY reboot.
Carol hosted the BBC series from 1996-2003, but Laurence Llewelyn Bowen was the only person who asked to be back for Channel 4’s.
Davina McCollum, a TV presenter, was initially replaced. She was forced to resign due to scheduling conflicts and was replaced by Anna Richardson (50).
Channel 4 has said: “The commission was for one series. A decision won’t be made until series one has finished.”
Changing Rooms airs Wednesdays on Channel 4 at 8pm
