Horror music plays as the camera jumps between darkened shots of a house’s filthy interior – a kitchen piled high with years’ worth of washing up, a living room suffocating under a thick layer of dog hair – interspersed with screamed reactions to the mess – “eeeeeeep, Kim, there are MOUSE DROPPINGS in the CUTLERY DRAWER”.

TELLY'S Queen of Clean Aggie McKenzie has split from her husband after 19 years of marriage. Aggie, 55, let slip the news this week when asked how she was managing her work-life balance with architect Matthew Goulcher, 46. The Scots star said: "Well, my husband and I are separated, but it's fine, it's OK.
